In case you ever want alternatives to twine undum.comdocs.textadventures.co…. inform7.com
Thanks a lot! It looks really easy to use and great for RPGs with classic stats or health. It would be a huge pain to even try to implement these things in Twine.
I’m at a uni too but with a game club, that’s a shame..u can always have a team of 2 or 3 ppl (programmers and artists) if u want the exp of making a game in a team, game jams are rly gr8 for that. the team usually does what the game designer says
(cont.) (ofc your plan is gr8 but actually making games w/a team = feasible + most likely what u will be doing in the future even if u’r indie..I’ve been making games for the last 2 yrs & doing it solo is rly different from a team :0 just my 2 cents)
You make great points, actually. Working with people is an important skill and great learning experience. I will look further into whether there is anything to be done and whether I might find more people.
Truth is, I am trying to be self-sufficient because it seems easier. People are complicated and I feel very reluctant about showing them my work, because it will open me to their criticism and judgement. That is another thing I need to overcome and work on.
are there any game making clubs at your school? that usually helps in making games while in school :0
Actually I’m in university right now, hehe. There weren’t any games clubs either, as far as I looked.
But as it was already written in the article, there are hundreds of ways to get started. Twine is a popular one. Gaming mods are pretty good at showing what you got (I might start with Shadowrun, since it has dedicated mod support).
Basically, all I need is to start spending a lot more work on it and refining my writing. But with university getting in the way, it’s not going that smoothly.
Also, I feel really weird about assembling a team in order to make a real game. I have strong ideas about what I wanna make and so probably do others, which means someone will have to concede.
So, my plan goes as following:
1. Write short stories.
2. Write Twine games.
3. Write mods.
4. Make contacts and/or apply at firms
Ahhh how could you :p. (Why’d you change it?)
Shameful little fact - I never asked the artist for permission to use it as an avatar, since I didn’t realize at that time how much crediting means to people. Now since I downscaled it, I couldn’t find them anymore to ask.
Besides, my new cheerful skelly avatar looks hella rad. (Although I do wish it was a bit brighter.)
Okay, I changed my avatar. Don’t be confused.
What’d you think of infinite itself?
i liked it when i first played it and there are some things i still like about it but overall i have come to accept that it fucking blows
#burial at sea was what propelled me from ”depression” to ”acceptance” in my five stages of binfinite grief
