  • Not sure I fully understand. Is this free-lance work?
  • NDDDave said:

    Yes that is the idea although I think freelance typically refers to an individual doing a specific service. This is more about business engaging to build a full game product for someone else. Or more specifically game development teams/businesses that have the capacity and interest in engaging in project contracts.

    I get a fair number of queries in email for this sort of work and I am sure many others do. This is a place to send those opportunities.

    @tbulford: Maybe each listing needs a single brief line entry that lists the key services to better let people know who does what? So for 24 Bit Games it would be:

    services: Mobile / Web / Desktop game development, porting, and optimisation.

    If others want to add this to their listings, I suggest they just edit their OP so this thread doesn't bloat too much! :)

    Added, a simple listing like that is suitable. Anything more should probably be on your own web site.
  • tbulford said:

    Agreed. Point is for people to not have to wade through 20 sites if they only say, want a Web game or art outsourcing, but 15 of the 20 sites don't do handle those etc. :)

  • is this a place where i can advertise my website and games?
  • cooldudue said:

    Hey cooldude, depends, do you do outsourced games for other people. If so then yes, although advertise might be a strong word. This remains a convenient list for potential people that want to outsource there projects to find teams.
  • I see some people are confused about this topic, I've been receiving emails of people offering their skills to me so I would outsource to them...which I do not mind...just a heads up. There is a difference between outsource -to and -from..., not sure how we will separate the two and if it is necessary.

    The list is getting a bit cumbersome. Will see is there is a way to break it into multiple lists.
    Thanked by 1MCA

    Perhaps a spreadsheet hosted on google drive or something, broken down by field/ subfield (for example developer / 3D rendering) would be most useful, and a public link to that file could be posted here. This way interested parties can sort by what they're looking for, for example location or field.

  • I suggest also adding in which city/town each company is located.
    Some clients prefer working with people in the same location.
    So they don't have to contact everyone, or check every website, to determine where the company is based.
  • Can our post be updated? I've updated the website and removed the "services" webpage now:

    I think ultimately the list is growing cumbersome. It would be great if we could each have a little section we manage of our own that talks about our companies.

    @tbulford
    Great idea :)

    Suggestions for something we could try:

    1) The first post only contains company names and each links to the user's post (the user's company post lower down in the thread).

    2) Each user edits their post to update (if needed) the company info, using a guideline template (e.g. name, logo/icon, website link, description, contacts, etc.).

    3) Each user post also has a "return to top" link. (Nice to have, but not important.)

    4) Delete, or move to a separate thread, all posts that do not contain company info. (Such as this post I made.)
    If they are moved to a separate thread then the first post can have a link to that thread, indicating its purpose.
    Also have a warning that non-company posts will be moved to the other thread.

  • Please remove Gamelancer from the active list, since I get many request I cannot help anymore.

    Currently we closed for active outside work (actually since August 2015),
    and returned to solo hobbyist developers.

    Had a great time in CT, I'm not there anymore like most of you know.
    I highly recommend Pieter Visser as an employee for any of the other studios!

    GL is now only me, Morne Booysen, as a part time developer and I've got a full time job now as a Financial Planner...since the Chemical Engineering industry is also on tilt.

    PS: Thus I (GL) cannot help shadows, nor employment opportunities (if your visitor reading this).

    PSS: All the best to the other Studios Starting out!
    God bless, and thank you for all the new friends from these forums. And all the Twitter likes and retweets.


    Post Mort'em: (Just my opinion)

    Doesn't matter how much you make, or how hard you work...if your burnt rate is higher than your net income, your out of business.

    Wins:
    New friends and people.
    Education in game development and its business world, in the real world.

    Recommendation:
    1. First get your (a) game to the stage that it is loved with an active community base, before you spend your pension on (just doing it, unless you know why personally like I did. Personal life goals.)! If you have a specific game, make sure it has a solid known market value and that if you hit the minimum sales it is enough.
    2. Contract work is contract work, ie not fun. Only benefit is being paid while you hone your craft.
    3. Have a life goal why you are doing this, and try and track or reflect on it. This may help you better understand yourself and what you want out of this industry. Example: Do you want to make games, or sell them? Read the book e-Myth.
    4. You need a huge network in and outside this industry - thus communities like this MGSA is priceless.
    5. Have fun! If not your doing it wrong!
