  1. Land of Sand -- Dune inspired real-time strategy game Allow me to introduce you an RTS game, which is currently in development. Land of Sand is a mixture of global and real-time strategy inspired by classic RTS games, such as Dune II, Dune 2000 and Emperor: Battle for Dune. As a representative of a powerful faction you are appointed planetary governor of Foedia -- a desert world known for its harsh conditions and valuable resource. However two rival factions, unsatisfied with this decision, declare war on you. You have to defeat them and establish your factions rule over Foedia once and forever. Build, develop and defend your base. Harvest resources. Train soldiers and produce vehicles. Manage optimally your limited fuel and water resources. Struggle with extreme conditions and hostile fauna. Defeat your enemies. Conquer the planet region by region. Land of Sand will be RTS with global strategic layer: global map devided into regions, which player defends or conquers during RTS missions. In between missions player chooses what region to attack, invests resources in capital base development and researching technologies, gathers intelligence on enemy regions, sends agents to sabotage enemy efforts, negotiates with secondary factions. Capital base progress and global situation influence player capabilities during missions: how much supplies and reinforcements can be obtained, what units and buildings are available, secondary factions acting as allies, neutrals or enemies. Game release is planned in 2019. Official site: Land of Sand
  2. Hey, fellow developers. I'm currently working on a recommendation platform for games and looking for a good use case and a practical experiment to prove that our algorithm works as good as in theory. So we're making a contest for indie games that are recently released or will be released in a few months. It means FREE promotion for every game applied and highly targeted promo campaign for the winner. We are using a machine learning algorithm that analyses gamers personality psychology, gaming preferences, and specific gaming aspects to suggest the most relevant games to a specific gamer. Thus creating a super targeted promo of niche games. Some more info on the contest: - tell more about your game (fill in the form) -ask few friends to rate your game and some others good and bad in our free app- so we know exactly how your game looks in our metrics link to contest https://gametree.me/indie.html direct link to the form https://gametree.me/app/submit-game
  3. Hiya folks! I'm Juhani from Sleepy Sentry, a young indie studio from Finland. We're a three-man team, and we've previously published a couple of simple mobile games that we created while studying. In 2016 we took the step to working on the company full time, and started development on a PC game; in many ways the game we wanted to make: Check out our story trailer and/or gameplay trailer! Indiegogo campaign page. Stirring Abyss combines deep ocean exploration, squad strategy and Lovecraft-inspired storytelling. You take charge of the surviving crew of the USS Salem, U.S. Navy submarine that sinks while on a top secret research mission during the early years of the Cold War. They find themselves surrounded by the ruins of a forgotten civilization, their vessel too badly damaged to escape the depths. Some things we're especially proud of include: Our beautiful underwater environments, in a classic 2d isometric perspective. Varied strategic combat. Diverse character traits and skills, as well as gruesome mutations unlocked during the game. Unsettling and fully original soundtrack. Interactive and chilling story with truly meaningful choices. Some pre-alpha screenshots: I'll be posting updates here as we go, although since it's manual work it may take a moment after stuff gets posted on our blog and social media. If you have any questions I'd love to answer them, and at this point any feedback is welcome but I imagine there will be more opportunity for that as we can actually show more of the game. Feature Spotlights: Spineskulker "Darkness and silence hang upon the abyss like a funeral cloth, but what truly terrifies me is that this place is not lifeless. It is asleep, and something stirs in the gloom..."
  4. Greetings all! I am a longtime fan of Idle Thumbs, video games, and gamer culture. As such, it has been a dream of mine to make games of my own, and with this current Wizard Jam, I'm planning to do my best to make that dream a reality. Currently, I'm designing a 2D platformer based around the Idle Thumbs episode titled "Real Slyboots," in which you traverse a series of levels in search of the real Slyboots, encountering all sorts of other boots along the way. The ideal game I'm imagining is probably far more than a first-time developer like myself will be able to complete within the two weeks of the jam, but more than anything I'm aiming to get experience developing, and I'll be cataloging that experience on this thread. I'm using GameMaker (which I've gotten little use out of other than casual goofing around) as an engine, and am creating art assets by hand with pen and paper. Finalized drawings will then be photographed on my iPhone and sent to my horribly outdated laptop, at which point I'll clean, tweak, and color them (using Paint.NET). Obviously I recognize that there are more efficient ways of handling asset work, but I find this process to allow for quick transitions between concept -> creation -> correction -> implementation. In my parting words, I'd like to say that advice and criticism alike are welcome, and that I'm both excited to take part in my first jam as well as eager to witness the fruits of everyone else's labors. Thank you and good luck!
  5. Chronicles of cyberpunk is adventure in the city of the near future in which power belongs to the big brother and his supercomputer. You have to convince the inhabitants of the city is in danger of artificial intelligence and fight together with the forces of cyborgs. Play it on Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/742470/Chronicles_of_cyberpunk/ Story and atmosphere of the game inspired by a lot of movies, games and images about cyberpunk. One of my main goals is to create a world to which the player wants to plunge and which he did not want to leave. Game will contain a lot of handmade artwork .. and many models
  6. Thought this would be a receptive community to short, small, weird games, so here goes: Our game Close Your won developer's choice at Indiecade and was the Best Student winner at IGF 2015, and honestly the best description of it is here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/146338032/close-your-life-one-blink-at-a-time It would mean the world to us to check it out, as you can see we're pretty small budget and studio size and relying on a lot of grass roots to get it through. We would love any and all feedback and will be watching this post closely! -Will & GoodbyeWorld Games P.S. sorry to shill on a great forum but hey you see what it's like launching a kickstarter...
  7. Hey everyone, I'm the gameplay designer and engineer on Apartment: A Separated Place. It's an indie game about the relationships we have with the important people in our lives — whether they are romantic, familial, platonic, or otherwise. We're in the final 48 hours of our Kickstarter campaign to polish up the game's art and music, and I thought you all might be interested in what we've made! You can get a demo of our game here! In Apartment you play as Nick Connor, a comic artist whose girlfriend, Madison, has just left him. You get to explore his mental and emotional state in the wake of his break up. Nick mopes around his apartment in an introspective daze, chewing over his thoughts and looking at the things that spark memories of the times they shared together. As an artist, Nick turns to illustration to memorialize these special moments, whether they were good or bad. You also get to step into the lives of Nick's neighbors: a displaced loner, an uncertain newlywed, a lost daughter, a grieving widow. We convey story through mechanics that put players in the shoes of our characters. In the game we experiment with different mechanics through a series of playable vignettes tailored to tell the stories of Nick’s his neighbors. Every neighbor vignette uses a different gameplay style unique to that experience. One of our favorite examples can be seen in the Kinda Funny Games Let's Play below, which shows the first part of Rose's story. I'd love to talk more about the game with you. Let me know what you think and any questions you have! Here's a fun Let’s Play video by Kinda Funny's Greg and Tim. They play a bit of Rose's story. Here's a more serious Let’s Play video by MinerStewy. He plays a bit of Jim's story.
  8. Hey guys, for those of you located in The Nether Lands, tomorrow and friday there's a free games expo at Tivoli in Utrecht, right next to Central Station. Lots of fresh new dutch indie games are playable there, so if you're in the neighbourhood, swing by! http://www.dutchgamegarden.nl/english/news/detail/play-a-record-breaking-32-new-independent-games-from-the-netherlands-at-indigo-147/ There's some cool stuff to see there (and not just because my game is in the lineup ). Oculus DK2 is going to be there too! Action Henk, Lethal League, other cool stuff. Would be cool to see some Thumbs there.

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1027299776/witchmarsh Has anyone else backed this game? Looks amazing, genre-crossing mash set in 1920s Massachusetts. Still a ways away but looks like one to keep an eye on.
  10. Hey guys, here's a short video with my reaction to Goat Simulator. Take a look and let me know what you think. Beardo
  11. Making a game? Pitch it here!

    Hey guys, there has been talk about making games on here and you all seem really capable at making games! If you are like me you may have some cool ideas so why not share them and get some feedback? I will start by pitching the game I have been working on for the past 6 months (which I have like nothing done) So it is a single screen Adventure Game that takes place at a bus stop. The main goal is to explore the aspect of meeting new people and using your observation skills to get a sense of what kind of person they are and what matters to them. It is all about the dialogue and what the player gets from it. I would love to hear your feed back. and lets hear what ideas you have for a game!
