Not particularly interested in paid positions, but I'm not complaining if I'm offered one. I've been a hobbyist programmer and ambient music composer for close to 5 years. As someone with ADHD, I'm looking for a dynamic position that allows me the flexibility to work on many different things at the same time.
I've only ever finished one game, and it was a duo for a game jam over a weekend. I worked on programming, sound design, and art: https://homemadejam.itch.io/pov

I like the concept of having to work with another person to solve the puzzle, although there weren't many clues in-game to help me understand that. I found a bug with the chess board, as well-- if I click a piece and then spam a bunch of tiles on the chess board, the piece starts flying off the board. Although, bugs are to be expected, especially for a game made in only 3 days. I'd also like to point out that the music and graphics are very pretty.
Good job! :)
Hey, I'm Joel! I write music and know enough of C#, Java, and Python to write code for games. I would probably work best as a secondary/junior programmer for a dedicated programmer on a team. Looking for a chill, fun experience where I can build my experience in game dev and hopefully write some good music, too. HMU if you're looking for a team member!
I love that you have to fight against yourself! Such a neat idea to make the upgrades to your gun directly make the game harder. The gameplay is smooth like butter, and although there isn't any sound, the art makes up for it. Reminds me of many old, obscure Japanese arcade games.
I don't have much experience with 3D modeling, but I have worked with multiple game jam teams making music and sound effects. Here's my SC: https://soundcloud.com/joel-mcdonald-499869143
I also have experience programming in C#, Python, and Java, so I could serve useful in that regard as well.
FamiTracker is nice, but it's quite tedious to put in the right notes in the right spots. Having another DAW like FL Studio to write a melody and transferring it into FamiTracker is the best way to go. Pico-8 comes with a similar music creator, and it's a game engine, so if you have money to spend, that would be a fair option.
