  1. This thread is for recruiting team members! If you have a game idea and need help from a reader with a particular set of skills, post in this thread, preferably in the following format to make it easy for people to skim the thread and find you. You should also look for collaborators in the team seeking thread and come join the #wizardjam channel on the Idle Thumbs Slack channel and see if anyone can help out. Or just drop in and chit-chat with us while you're working on your game! And if you have enough members, please edit your post and note that. This is the recruiting/LFM thread; if you want to post what you're able to contribute and have someone else find you, use the team seeking/LFG thread. Format: Pitch: Game Pitch (Try and keep this to one or two sentences!) What I need: What you need (Artist, programmer, writer, etc) What I'm doing: What you're contributing Contact Info: Your contact info (PM, email, whatever) And optionally: Time Zone: It's probably easier to work with people who aren't 12 hours off from you? But maybe it's fine. Portfolio: A link to your portfolio / website / whatever if you have one, so people can check your style. Then whatever else you want. Example: Pitch: I wanna make 'You, Fisher', a 3D stealth fishing game about casting lines without being spotted by security, and catching as many fish as possible before sunrise. I want to learn UE4 and C++ What I Need: 3D artist who can animate some fish (and help with design!) Audio person to make some sneaky music and fish noises. Smoky jazz? What I'm doing: Programming in UE4, Sam Fisher impressions Contact info: PM me on the forums or message me on the Idle Thumbs Slack Time Zone: EST (UTC -5) but I'm usually up late Portfolio: Here's my website with some gifs of other games I've made! www.puffin.biz I've been a fan of Splinter Cell since first seeing screenshots of their dynamic shadows in ~2005 and I have a Sam Fisher bust above my fireplace. I'd like the game to have a light stealth system, fully rigged realistic humanoid characters, and a dynamic music system that's entirely early-2000s style drum and bass but made exclusively out of samples of water splashing and seagull noises.

    I found most of the DCCU movies to be at least interesting in how bad they were, but Justice League was just sooooooo boring.
  4. [RELEASED] The Octopus Affair

    Nice fish, dude.

    Queer Eye, the reboot on the Netflix is You'll like it because makeovers and home improvements are the #content everyone enjoys, but the show really goes above and beyond to create an emotional human connection with the makeover subjects. Except the episode with the cop, fuck you netflix now, i gotta see a maga hat every time i open u up, wtf dude

    Latin alphabet? I'm on mac, maybe that's why it works for me. It's easy to write pineapple from an Apple.

    Warcraft is probably a top 3 video game movie. Low bar, not actually good, but, like a harvest golem, outstanding in its field.

    Huh, pineapple is censored?

    I recommend avoiding Mute, the Duncan Jones movie on the 'flix. It's bad in almost every way. You get a miscast Paul Rudd, and a relatively dull cast otherwise. It's set in a cyberpunk world, but the story is neither cyber nor punk. The mystery noir story it attempts to tell is completely meandering and unfollowable. The only redeeming moments are when Paul Rudd gets to do Paul Rudd acting and be a futuristic asshole.

    ? .... ! Honestly can't wait to see more of what this guy does.

    I had a very similar experience with Lovers. Funny how the 2 player mode is definitely the strongest design wise, but, actually I just want a fucking around in a spaceship experience.

    Yeah, we were talking about that in Slack yesterday. Weird! Seems like the producers lost faith in the film, marketing was a weak effort. Ya'll Euro Netflixers got something good to look forward to.

    Hey, so, Annihilation is pretty great.
