    Sounds interesting, how do you get the devkit and other necessities? Any names you can share of the studios that offer this? I'm definitely interested, I spent the night last night playing games on...
  2. Wow, what a complete load of crapola, Nintendo.

    I guess this is more of a rant than anything, but I recently was given a Wii console as an early Christmas present so I was over on their site browsing around to see what kind of games I can get for...

    I've found waving the gun around pretty much gets the point across.... ;)

    I've put my kids to work as beta testers and even game designers before. Kids love to help and love to feel included on...

    As someone who has written two games that have made all of about $40 or so in sales, I feel qualified enough to tell you that when the guys who have actually made decent money writing games talk,...

    I would say don't necessarily try to make something new. Make something better instead. Any game you play that leaves you saying "this game would be really cool if only it had _______ or did...

    I'm looking into this stuff as well. For indie games I think HTML5 is gonna be "the new hotness" due to the ability to write code once and run it on just about anything - and the market is due to...

    I dunno about that. I could see the game doing well on platforms like the iphone/ipod or DS. Maybe even Wii or other consoles? Might be a good seller as a downloadable for the xbox also. Maybe even...

    @jpoag: Ah, misunderstood the charts link... although peaking at #6 in downloads is loads better than my two games have done - I'd be thrilled if they got anywhere near the top ten! :)

    2 things.

    1. Top ten numbers are downloads, not buys.
    2. Lots of people said this game made them feel sick because of all the spinning and turning.

    See:...

    I've thought about this too, but decided against it, other than using prerendered 3d graphics for characters and backgrounds.

    As for the original list, seems like most of it is spot on, but anyone...

    Jasmine, I like this approach but I agree with Alex, it looks like darkness, not depth to me.

    What I'd do is create a shadow layer like you've done, but with more defined edges and with both...

    YES! YES! THANK YOU!

    I'm so glad I'm not the only one who thinks so. I *HATE* HO games and now that we're in the midst of writing one (or should I say scrapping one and starting over) I *HATE*...

    No. Bad idea.

    Home broadband IP addresses can change like the wind. You'll piss off your customers very quickly by locking them out of the game after theirs has changed one time too many.

    I...

    Jasmine, this is an interesting thread. As a developer, I'm keenly interested in writing games that folks like you would want to buy. If my sales are any indication of how well I'm doing at that,...

    Looks good! Nice twist on the match 3 genre! (Now why can't I think of something like that, LOL)

    Details! How long did it take to write, what tools did you use, etc. Enquiring minds want to know....

    I love the artwork. Who's the artist? I may tap them for a project that we've planned to make use of that type of art style for (assuming we can ever get the funds to pay for it, of course. :D)

    I'd avoid it. As others have said, the demand just isn't there anymore for places like these, and with the offering of food comes the hassles of licensing, inspections, shopping for supplies, etc....

    Go to your local computer software store and get a clipart set. I got one that contains 50,000 images for $39 bucks or something like that. Per the license agreement, I can use 'em for whatever I...

    Well to answer the gist of the question, yes it is possible. MCF: Dire Grove was done in Flash (there was a blurb about it in BFG's blog a while back where the team described transitioning from...

    No, I think he's looking for someone to write the whole thing.

    A full-on MMORPG in six months? Game Engine, Server set up, artwork, music, programming?

    Sure, I'll do it for about $500,000....

    Realtek AC97 sound card built into motherboard
    Windows XP SP2 (my machine doesn't like SP3 for some reason)
    DirectX 9C

    OK Chris, I gave it a whirl.

    Interesting game. I ran into a few minor things you'll want to look into and/or fix:

    1. When entering my name there's a button I can click, but I've got no mouse...
