Ask an extremely high Indie Video Game developer anything.
I created Lyne. It's on steam sale right now until the 30th for 75 cents. Go buy it fags.
But start asking shit now.
How many dicks do you suck a day, also, do you and Phil Fish suck each other off, or do you just take it up the ass from him? Seriously, fuck off, no one besides hipsters and paid jew journalists like indie games, eat shit and die, faggot.
>I suck 0 dicks
>I hate Phil Fish
Real talk, he gives all us "Indie" developers a bad name. Hate the guy honestly with every inch of my soul, never seen him, or plan to see him nor will I ever support any of his games
I only have a intermediate level of C++ programming, so a lot of the crazy idea's are beyond me to try and program. Otherwise I totally would have made it "exciting" and "cool"
Basically Steam just sent out an email at the start of June detailing when the sale started (they didn't tell us WHEN the date was, just that it was in june) how much we wanted to discount our product.
Everything else was done by them. I have no idea if my shit pops up in daily deals, sales, all that shit. It just happens and they take an amount of the sales.
Then they add tax on top of it. And bam, I get a whopping 23 cents total for each copy sold
Totally cool by me. Even if you don't buy it, here's a torrent some kid made for me for my game.
If there's anything I've learned in my 21 years of knowledge, any publicity is good publicity.
Try it out, tell everyone its gay. They will so on and so forth say its gay. Then 1 person will actually hear about how gay it is, and actually buy it. Then after all that, it turned out good for me
I originally thought it looked like another boring puzzle game but after seeing that trailer on the steam store I thought it looked interesting, but not really worth a whole 75 cents.
I mean I could get 3 games on metal slug for that.
I'm pretty sure the cards can be sold for around 20 cents each last I checked.
Plus with all the card bullshit going on right now you might actually get more so yeah bro do it up, hopefully you get a foil!
Yeah it works amazing on phones. Just be aware when you get to the C block sometime that last square can be a bitch when trying to undo. Just keep that in mind when you're trying to figure out a puzzle and you go to reset
I generally like to make games that make themselves. Final end idea after x amount of years making games is to have a fully procedurally generated game with quests/ai/monsters all that stuff. I take alot of inspiration from No Mans sky, minecraft, terraria, not the actual gameplay of them, but just how they all "make themselves" in a sense.
It just a simple "connect the lines" type of game. If you ever played fill in the dots as a kid you're already a pro at this, thats also where I got the idea for it.
That is true, like I said in my above post though, just pirate it and tell your friends its gay. It still helps me in the long run
How much experience in programming do you have?
Are you a one man army or do you have an artist/team behind you?
How much money have you made?
Have you ever been to /AGDG/?
living the dream?
I received a lyne booster pack and I can't sell it.
Explain this shit.
I've made close to 126 bucks since the start of the sale. Lifetime sales since march is ~350$
Thanks bro, tried to get the person just to think for themselves. Also notice my little wine glass blowing sound that I recorded in my basement.
Let me help you bro,
I just shit my pants
You sure showed him. It's not like he linked a torrent for it 8 posts before you or anything
>I've made close to 126 bucks since the start of the sale. Lifetime sales since march is ~350$
So you've sold over 500 copies this sale alone? That's pretty impressive, good on ya dude. Live the dream.
Programming for 4 years now with my main in C++, and about 2 years experience in Java.
I had a friend come up with basic block design that he sent me
Around 350 bucks since the game came out
Never been to AGDG, don't really want to associate myself with a majority of the people in that thread cause they just shitpost and go on about "OMG YOU USE JAVA, YOURE NOT USING A STACK TO RUN THAT CLASS?" Just real dumb shit. Plus I feel like people will just steal my ideas.
Am I living the dream? My other hobby is breakdancing, so yeah I would say I am. I just dance and make games when I'm bored at home
How come you know how to actually market a game on /v/?
your not afraid of the twelve year olds saying your going to pirate your game, you actually give out links, and you know that publicity is publicity so advertising it to them will help you out anyway, that takes balls.
Is your game DRM-free? if not sorry
all in all you get props from me
Hmmm, I might be able to change that. I might have fucked up on the whole card system so I'll look at it later tonight.
Great idea, I'm sure I'll become a billionaire so I'll get started on it right away.
No. Luckily your dad rapes me every night so I can happily say I'm not a virgin.
I had the idea for around 6-7 months, never actually got around to coding it until 3-4 months after that. Took me only 1 month of maybe 2-3 hours a day of coding to make and perfect. Real simple game with simple design.
And I would also says it's worth the effort not because of the money, but just because of the whole feeling of "hey I made that, people are buying it, it's mine" type of thing.
>Am I living the dream? My other hobby is breakdancing, so yeah I would say I am. I just dance and make games when I'm bored at home
so how do you eat if you made but 350$ since the game was released?
Yes I will.
The sale isn't on ios and android unfortunately, just a steam thing. Plus I don't really want to change the price just yet on play and the appstore cause they charge you extra money to change that shit.
I've been on /v/ since around 08 so I've seen some shit. And the game is DRM free on my site. But it costs 3 bucks on there so it's up to you.
Right now I'm not working on anything, but I do have a few idea's. I want to get into making small time action rpg's, but I know that would be a bitch so I'm just trying to learn more about procedural generating levels and such. Have a pretty decent dungeon design algorithm that makes a chest appear at the end of every dead end. Might throw that into some future game.
And yeah nigga I'm smokin that reefer
So you had to pay 100 to get it on greenlight, had to wait until it got through, and since it got through it made you less money in 3 months than a minimum wage part time job would net you in 2 weeks.
How the fuck is PC gaming not dead yet?
Do you believe in aliens?
Have you ever seen a ghost?
What's your favorite kind of pizza?
Do you have a cat?
Are you attracted to women who fart in your face?
If you were a dinosaur, what would species would you be?
Why is the sky blue?
K I guess I better shut up now
I breakdance and work for a university just doing small time computer repairs
I live with my parents and have my other jobs to rely on
PC gaming will never die imo because there will always be that "new game craze" that comes out. Look at DayZ, Minecraft, Terraria, Counter Strike.
All those games started on PC, not a single one started on a console. Indie Game Developers always turn into the future big time game devs. So long as their is one flagship game on pc, it won't be dead.
No to aliens, no to ghosts, hawaiian, I hate cats so no, I don't like women who fart, I would be a brontosaurus, It's blue because of how the nitrogen atoms reflect only the blue light rays from the sun.
High as in I smoked weed, not high as in "I'm at the top of the chain"
No idea, I don't worry about it because before I lived, life wasn't that bad. Don't remember it and don't feel it, so I feel death is the same way.
ya pooftah cunt
Um. Isn't it against the rules to try to market things on this site? Like I can't say you totally aren't but at the same time you did fucking link a torrent for your game. Like. Fuck.
I don't see how that's marketing. /v/, /h/, and every other board link to torrents relevant to their interests all the time. If he was just an anon, you wouldn't even know it was his game.
I'm 21, They taught me next to jack shit in school, but thats kinda common with all schools. I just have a diploma in Computer Technology, which still got my foot in the door for a majority of IT jobs that I'm aiming for later in life (like System Admin).
Just some weed.
I know bro, I know.
You're pretty alright OP, looking forward to whatever else you make.
>mfw shitposters are mad because they will never ever make a game to shill on /v/
>I hate cats
Pirating your piece of shit vidya, faggot
You know what, OP? You're a
I'm going to pirate your game. Good luck in the Summer Sale.
I don't like to support dick sucking weed addicts OP.
Did you know it only takes less than 1 whole nug of weed to blow your entire head up?
If you tell me your favorite drink, and it's good enough, I'll buy you're game. By drink I mean alcoholic; but I raise the stakes and I want to hear 3 of your favorite drinks you fuck.
There have been precedents on /a/ and /co/ and probably /mu/ as well of creator threads talking about their stuff being allowed.
It's not my fault you never leave /v/ and aren't on the up and up.
You learn something new everyday
I really can't say to be sure. Try it out for 5 mins and that'll really be the only sure fire way. Just pirate it and see how it goes. Then if you feel like spending 75 cents on steam go for it!
Cats are fucking terrible animals. Truly they are. Have fun having a cat when a burglar busts into your house and rapes your mom while you hide behind your cat.
Favorite Alcoholic drink is Corona with a lime. Hard liquor would just be rum and coke.
3 favorite drinks (non-alcoholic)
1. Raspberry Arizona Iced Tea
I'm still here, sorry was just grabbing food
it's not a royalty, its just pretty much instantly sent to my bank account. If the game is on sale I just get whatever the profit is after all the taxes and shit are taken off. Like right now I just keep getting 23 cents put into my account. After the sale it'll probably jump up to 70 something cents.
>Corona with a lime. Hard liquor would just be rum and coke.
>3 favorite drinks (non-alcoholic)
>1. Raspberry Arizona Iced Tea
God damn it OP. You fucked up. None of those are particularly good drinks.
I'll buy your game anyway since you participated.
> Indie Game Developers always turn into the future big time game devs.
You must be kidding. Name one indie dev that turned into a "big time game dev"
Notch? He he gave up in the middle of developing his only "worthwhile" game, and hasn't made shit since.
Phil Fish? Hasn't made shit since Fez, and is trying to turn his "company" into a publisher so he cane ride the coattails of other people's work.
John Blow? He's just making his second indie game. By no means a "big time game dev"
Make it 2D with sprites, but good ones like from the 16bit era, none of that shitty pseudo 8-bit crap, and have the main character be a dinosaur.
Do codifications and hire capable artist from here: http://www.pixeljoint.com/ It would practically print money.
I want this fucking dinosaur game now.
>Have fun having a cat when a burglar busts into your house and rapes your mom while you hide behind your cat.
whats the matter anon did you have a troubled childhood?
John Blow seems to actively avoid joining into the "Big game dev" club. Kudos to him for that. He took all of his money for Braid and has put it into The Witness. If you're actually wondering if games can be art, he's one of the few I know of thats trying it.
Whether it's good or not is entirely subjective but for Blow, games are creative works, instead of just entertainment products.
I brought your game on steam awhile ago and really enjoyed it, sucks it hasn't made you more money.
Now it's on sale I'm going to gift it to some of my friends who would't think of buying it.
>Favorite Alcoholic drink is Corona with a lime. Hard liquor would just be rum and coke.
Gather round and learn from it children, in the end, OP is always a faggot.
Always, without fail.
>Cats are fucking terrible animals. Truly they are. Have fun having a cat when a burglar busts into your house and rapes your mom while you hide behind your cat.
That cat has a cannon strapped to its head, killed those fucking soldiers without any trouble. Enjoy your piece of shit dog, dogfag
Was considering buying your game anyway since it popped up a few times here and there plus its dirt cheap.
Ok so few questions.
1.How did you go from c++ dev to published game on steamu
2.Did you use sfml/box3d
3. mobile or steam?Thinking it would be nicer with touch.
4.advice on making games with c++ ?Been trying since January and only made some basic shit like arkanoid and some shitty crap.How to improve.cant find much of this shit online.Any resources would be super helpful.
5.If you made it in c++ how did you port it to ios/android
I can not understand NTR or cockholding.
It is the dumbest shit ever. I just fucking hate this shit so much. It gets me so mad to see, even if it isn't even real!, some stupid little bitch just sit back and watch. What. The. Fuck.
Just leave the person at that point! Fuck...
No it isn't.
Only people who self insert as the person getting cheated on think it's shit. The people who self insert as the girl or the other partner are all enjoying themselves anon.
Are you just upset because you don't have a girlfriend and you blame everyone else for stealing her away from you?
Edmund McMillen may not have gone big time dev, but I'm pretty sure he's quite well off by now from SMB and BoI. Rebirth and Mewgenics also look like they'll print him plenty of money.
Anyway I like the idea from the other perspective, where the main character is the one who steals the girl. Why isn't there more porn like that? Why so many people want to watch their girlfriends get fucked by someone else?
>Hard liquor would just be rum and coke.
Jesus, learn to start appreciating a good scotch, straight or with just a dash of water. Rum and coke is not hard liquor, it's a fucking cocktail. A cocktail for little cock hungry sissy bitch faggots.
Dalwhinnie, Glenmorage, Arberlour, Oban, Talisker.
These are all noob friendly. Buy the 10 or 12 year versions.
NTR is short for netorare, is literally about your girlfriend being stolen. Being the one stealing isn't NTR, it's called netori.
See above, if you look for netori shit you might have better luck.
I think you're both taking the tag name for a fetish way too literally.
If you have a footjob fetish (which is disgusting btw) you don't self insert as the person giving the footjob.
Haven't checked. Bank account has gone up close to 3 dollars though in the past hour. So maybe like 50 sales?
I hate early access games honestly. I've yet to see a single EA game turn out to be successful yet. (Like that acronym? I sure do)
Not troubled, I just always had dogs growing up. When I found cats I just thought they were useless. I have an issue with incompetence I suppose.
Never listened to the /v/ musical but I'm assuming its quite shit hahaha
It sure is
Thanks a bunch bro!
Always, without fail
Fight me faggot 1v1
Wowzers, lets start. I used sfml since it goes pretty much hand in hand with c++.
You just apply to be on the steam market once your game is completed, shit ton of options (Early access, beta, cards, sales) all that bullshit. Lots of things you can do.
I would stick with steam first off cause of how easy it is. The whole mobile platform sounds like a good idea, but at the same time look at how much bullshit bloatware games are in the market. And its hard cause very few people go to "page 38 of 1$ games".
Go on youtube, and watch other people make games in c++, no matter how simple the game design, you'll learn tricks and shit.
Made in c++, ported with SDL 2.0 and it did all that shit for me
no anon, I like you.
I like where this thread is going
I understand that it's possible to self-insert as any of the characters, but it's about more than just the actual sexual act. I want to understand the character, and the character given the most exposition is the main character.
It looks fun and well -designed. I'm going to buy it on steam, and then for iOs as well.
Keep up the good work.
>the character given the most exposition is the main character
All the main characters in the ones i've read are the girl. I dunno what shit you've been reading but i only read the good stuff.
Footjob fetish is for receiving footjobs. NTW fetish is for being NTR'd. There's people who get off on that idea somehow. And getting rubbed with a clean foot is still better than getting your girl stolen.
How can you not get off to NTR? Especially if you're white and being NRT'd by a black guy. God, nothing gets me harder than knowing I'm an inferior white man, who cannot provide my woman with the superior genes or the superior lovemaking that she needs. Knowing that some filthy monkey is slamming that 10 inch long cock inside your girl, god damn that is such a turn on. Especially porn where the daughter of a stuck up white family becomes a breeding pig for niggers.
>I generally like to make games that make themselves. Final end idea after x amount of years making games is to have a fully procedurally generated game with quests/ai/monsters all that stuff. I take alot of inspiration from No Mans sky, minecraft, terraria, not the actual gameplay of them, but just how they all "make themselves" in a sense.
C-could you make that please? I've always wanted to see that.
I'm actually going to buy your game OP because of the cards once I sell some more drops. It looks like a nice time waster, regardless of the cards. Keep it up! Would you consider doing a 3D puzzle game? Like something in Unity? I got Kairo on this sale and it was kinda cool, you should check it out if you haven't.
I think you're being sarcastic on purpose. I think you just like degrading women anon.
>K I guess I better shut up now
No, don't let that fag push you around. Thanks for sharing. Your game looks like something I could unwind to in the evenings.
Besides, it's hardly shilling if you're providing torrent links
Taxes and steam.
1. Sengoku Rance
2. Majoras Mask
3. CS all versions
4. Kingdom Hearts 2
I dislike waaay to many games to post as I'm sure you all hate waaaaaay too many games also.
Sunshine (2007 film about sun being reignited, not that gay little miss sunshine film)
in dota? shiet no idea
I've always hated reddit and always will. So /v/ is the only option for me
Yeah I'll get right on posting the source code. 1 second bro. You should see it any second now.
I think if I was a major game dev, and had a 60 dollar game out for a month then cut it 50%, it would. But when the game is a dollar or two, it doesn't really matter that much.
You're the type of person I would love to murder. I really want to experience what it's like to take someone's life away before I die myself. I would choose somebody like you for maximum pleasure. You don't deserve the oxygen you breathe.
>developer is cool non-confrontational guy answering even illogically stupid questions from sperglords
dat tall poppy syndrome
>Make shitty $1 game
>Force Steam to put cards in it
>Tell Steam they can put it on sale for as much as they like whenever they want
>Game drops down to < 30 cents
>Cards are worth a minimum of 11 cents
>You get 6 cards from the game
>Sell the cards
>Buy another copy of the game
>Sell the cards
dare you solve my puzzle, OP?
just finished B, I dig the game and your wine glass sound effects.
>That is true, like I said in my above post though, just pirate it and tell your friends its gay. It still helps me in the long run
That alone made me look it up. Just bought it. Enjoy my shiny american quarter.
>Sunshine (2007 film about sun being reignited, not that gay little miss sunshine film)
Fucking Sunshine, man. It's my favourite movie until that godawful Freddy Kreuger-tier twist towards the end where it all goes to shit.
Hahahaha thanks bro! Keep cool.
Oh my bad, I thought you meant should you put your game on those platforms, but yeah I suggest mobile if you're into playing mobile games. It works great on phones.
I never ever fucking knew there was a medically classified syndrome for what I'm doing. Wow. You learn new shit every day huh?
It sounds like a good idea, but from the developer stand point you would lose a lot of money cause of getting the game on steam and adding cards. To add cards to my game it was close to 75 bucks total.
No worries bro.
Believe it or not I don't have a single favorite indie dev. I hate damn near all of them cause they all let me down one way or another.
is it 3 seperate puzzles or 1 giant one?
Just wanted to let everyone know that this post made me spit up my cantaloupe that I was eating. This is why I love /v/.
I wouldn't consider myself a beta faggot for accepting /v/ for all that it is. People have different opinions then mine. Also
A lion doesn't concern himself with the opinions of sheep
Fun is a relative term to the individual playing it. With that in mind when I made this game it wasn't supposed to be THE FUNNEST GAME EVER. More or less something just to get the mind running and just to have something to do when bored.
I always hate when they decided to be clever and make it something stupid sounding instead of just "high/medium/low" and have a dozen of options.
I do love the Lyne one though.
