  • * Here Comes A New Challenger! *

    Wsup Guys. My Name is Alex Ynclan.

    I am an artist working in the Video Game & Animation Industry, mostly for a small indie studio called ClanBisi (JHB).
    We're kinda new here but hope to bring our own flavour / perspective to the scene through emotional, culturally focused games and content.

    Currently based on the East Coast of the USA but I tend to travel. I am excited to lurk, collaborate, share, post and of course get to know the rest of the you crazy cats. Will dump some art at some stage but for now I am just excited to be here.

    Keep on doing all that great creative biz that you guys do!!

    Hi Game heads, my legal name is Keith but I go by the name of Kido.
    I discovered this website by Luck but I regard it more as a Blessing. I am a Solo self taught aspiring game developer who has keen interest in growing the skill. I joined this group in the hope that I can finally share dialog, ideas and be inspired by like minded people. Lord knows this is a hard field in which to progress and even harder when you the only programmer you know.
    I hope my time in this club will be a joyous, educational, fun and possibly productive time.

    Much love to all the artists on here and best wishes to all projects you embark on. Keep in touch. Peace.
  • Hello!
    I am a crazy person looking to complete my games and share them with you.
    I have lots of programming experience and look forward to the critique of the design of my games.

  • Hi all! my names Hans and I'm currently studying game design at Wits. I was introduced to this website due to the Comic-Con Game Jam and I'm looking to improve myself as a game designer.

  • Hi! Just realised that I never actually properly introduced myself. My name is Tiaan Fortune and I've been a member of this site for around 3 years now. I've mainly just worked on games in Game Maker Studio and I'm currently in my first year of Computer Science.

  • Hey :) My name is Daniel. Joined the site in 2017, but haven't introduced myself yet.

    My friend and I have participated in 2 game jams so far. We use GameMaker 1.4 but might be experimenting with Unity in future. I volunteered at Playtopia last year and have been trying to keep up with the local scene a lil. I also love board games (but don't get to play them nearly as much as I should).

    First-year Computer Science student. I suspect I'll primarily be focusing on game jams (and forcing my classmates to join for next year's SA Game Jam ;]) but might start a personal project if my schedule and energy allow it.

  • Hi everyone!

    My name is James, and I am a sound designer. I've been working in the film and television industry for quite a while and am keen to get more involved in the game industry. I am currently familiarising myself with Wwise and FMOD, and slowly learning the basics of Unity, Unreal, and C# and C++.

    I am also keen to get involved in projects so if anyone needs any help on the audio side let me know!

  • Greetings all!

    I'm Gideon Griebenow, and I've been spending the last 7 months working on a 3D RTS on a hex map during my spare time. It's based on Catlike Coding's hex map tutorial, but I've already expanded on it quite significantly, for example making the segments of the hexes the base units of the map, rather than the hexes themselves. This greatly improves unit movement and everything that needs a location to happen.

    My game's name is World Turtles, since the world is situated on the back of a turtle, with different turtles leading to different scenarios and game parameters. I make YouTube videos of the development process and also have a sub-reddit, if you're interested:

  • Hello Gameverse!

    I'm Cara Helene. I am a writer and editor. Recently graduated my BA, I'm freelancing and finding my niche and where my passions lie. A game with kickass gameplay and an enchanting storyline is my favourite thing to find. That includes boargames, video games, rpgs... in short, I'm a geek but I'm a geek with writing skills who wants to help game makers create stories that feel real and immersive, while also being understandable. If you ever want someone to bounce ideas with or give your rulebooks a thorough look, feel free to message me!
  • Hiya!

    I'm Jean-Luc Chappell, a first year game design and development Student at Vega Cape Town. I'm definitely more interested in designing gameplay and idea generation (Mad Hatter Homebrew Dungeon Master kinda stuff), but coding is one of my stronger suits so far.

    I hope to be around this forum for many years to come!

  • Hi all!

    I'm Matthew, solo indie dev from Cape Town, working in the Godot engine.

    Here's my game dev journey:

    I resigned from a big boy office job in May last year and dove into a massive learning process: 3D modelling and animation in Blender, making/editing textures and normal maps in GIMP, learning GDscript and the amazing open-source Godot engine.

    I started making an FPS, the project spawned a few other projects, and then I neared the end of my savings so I decided to pause the more complex projects and try to get a small, tightly scoped game out in 3 months.

    At the beginning of November I crossed the finish line with Space Cheetah Hyper Runner: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2158050/Space_Cheetah_Hyper_Runner/
