Im currently learning how to use the unreal engine to make video games and im looking for artists and possibly other people that want to learn how to use unreal engine and make a beginners video game.
The project mainly entails however many people that are interested getting in a group and deciding the theme of the game based on a game play formula created by me. The idea of this project is for me to learn how to program a game and work with artists that want their input in the game as well. Any artists that join this minor endeavor will get input on the themes of the game and depending on the situation the gameplay. whether or not its a crap game doesn't even matter so long as its not crap because of bad programming or bad art. Bad game-play decisions will no doubt go into this game and will be used for learning later on in the next project, whether its with me or some other group that you decide you rather join.
Goals of this project:
Create a 2d game with at least one level and fun gameplay.
Gameplay as of right now is going to be a player vs a horde. This includes a basic menu, a few bad guys, a hero and some animations for all of them to make them seem alive.
There is no set theme. Only set gameplay. There is no real time limit and if you decide you rather just drop the project then that's OK. Just don't get involved thinking that there is going to be a game thrown out in a week when this likely will be a year long project without much outcome other than pride and a possible appreciation for video game development.
My personal goal is mainly to get inspiration and experience to make a game i truly want to see made. However this project is only a learning step for me to make it to this goal.
TL;DR: I have barely any idea what im doing as a game designer and i want an artist to make some sprites and help make a beginners game for learning purposes. No money involved, no real plan to sell the game unless it happens to be really good (im going to try and make it really good)
If this actually gains momentum ill release more details about whats actually on the to do list and get the ball rolling.
