UPD: by this time (mid-2017) I am not available, being too busy with existing projects.

Hello.

I am looking for a paid job related to coding/scripting the game, whether AGS or non-AGS, small (short-term) or larger, or just performing limited tasks for a game project (like implementing particular features, mini-game, etc).

About myself: I have 10+ years of professional coding (office jobs). Most of my work was done in C++, less in C#; also had limited time spent with Java, JavaScript, Lua and Python. I think that at current stage I won't have big problems in learning to use another coding/scripting language, or game-creation IDE demanded by project. I was primarily "Windows programmer" all this time, but I was developing for and in the Linux too (although much less than in Windows).
I am absolutely okay with working with other people's code, and don't complain if have to follow unfamiliar coding guidelines and conventions. I have worked with the very old and bad code in the past (cannot say I still enjoy doing that, but I can work on one if there is a need to).

Sadly, that may be not easy to present a big "portfolio" though, because 90% of my work was with closed-source commercial projects (or not related to games anyway). I was scripting for several AGS team projects, but none reached release for various reasons (except for couple of very short games I made myself long ago, which probably are not worth mentioning).

First of all, since we are at the AGS forums, I was working on maintaining and improving AGS engine - after Chris Jones has left - since year 2012 until recently.
At my early professional career I was porting mobile games from J2ME to BREW platform (C++). Besides other things this is where I learnt optimizing games for speed and memory usage (because of low-end phones).
Several years ago I was participating in writing two total conversions of old 2.5D Hexen game on Vavoom engine (something similar to ZDoom, but supporting UnrealC-like scripting language). These projects can still be found on their owner's website (I used same nickname there, so you may probably catch my name on some page there). "Korax Arena" was a multiplayer deathmatch game, for which I wrote additional modes, like CTF and so on, and new Bot AI from scratch. Another conversion was called "Scattered Evil", it was a classic single-player game; noteably I was writing advanced monster AI and pathfinding for it (because Doom pathfinding was terrible), which uses "nodes" (mapper must place them on the map) and A* algorithm.

Since that may be not much to display, I am not asking any money upfront nor any immediate offers, moreover I am okay to do some kind of test task to see if I am suitable for the project.

At the moment of writing this post I am ready for both part-time and full-time involvement, although as time goes the situation may change.

My own conditions of participating are:
- project should look promising and realistic (also just interesting :))
- payment should be sensible considering amount of time & effort required for the work.
NOTE: I am both okay with fixed payment or revenue share.

If you are interested or want to ask any questions, please PM me on this forum or send mail to ikm_spb@yahoo.com.

Hello, I’m Andreas.

Of all the arts, music is most directly connected to our emotions. Without words and explanation, we intuitively relate the beat to our pulse and the key to our mood. Some people therefore consider music as the most universal form of art that can be understood by everyone. Music in games – as in movies – thus shouldn’t be considered just a means to fill the silence. Done well, it is a device of storytelling equal to the visuals or the dialogues, just a little less obvious. Music can tell the story ‘behind the story’, make us feel the emotions that aren’t visible on screen and the screenwriter was prudent enough not to spell out. R-Type and Turrican made Chris Huelsbeck a celebrity overnight and video game music a genre that could be sold on CDs. Listen to Inon Zur’s Fallout soundtracks, and you can literally feel the rust and dust trickling from the notes, instantly gripping what it must be walking the lonely wastelands. Listen to Jeremy Soules Skyrim soundtrack, and you feel the heroic spirit of the Dragonborn and the excitement that discovering the northern lands hold, even though you are still in the loading screen.

I am a composer who likes games and is interested in collaboration. I have seen there are already a lot of talented and professional composers advertising here, many with a formidable portfolio and I hope that my advertisement won’t be considered as rivalry. I think there are many different styles, tastes and purposes, and for people looking for a soundtrack it might be good having many options. I’m trying to work in many styles, but if I had to name two genres then it would be epic orchestral scores and world music. You can hear a small selection at my Soundcloud portfolio:

https://soundcloud.com/ac_composer

An attempt in scoring a short film:



Please note that I have currently to work to finance my studies. I therefore might work a little slower than composers that have the luxury spending 24/7 on music. On the other hand, maybe I am a bit more affordable than the big names. I am very much interested in collaboration. So if you are interested in a music, please contact me and we’ll work something out.

Cheers!

I am game designer from Estonia. My main influences are games from 90's. I design games where story and gameplay are balanced -instead story evolving constantly, story evolves when some big goal is reached and player usually has quite many places to explore at once. My ideas range from fantasy to sci-fi to western and some of my designs involve interwinding stories that directly affect gameplay. Gameplay in my games may switch between one reality and another, player's character may try to reach personal goal at one moment and try to save day in next, or gameplay may even alternate between present and character's memories.

Hi. I'm a musician from Finland and I would love to make music for a game since i'm also a big adventure game fan. I play various instruments (and various genres) and I have a home studio with many different types of instruments including analog and digital synths so I think the scale of sound I can reduce is quite wide and can be tailored to your preferences. :)

Here is an electronic album I made with iPad Garageband on christmas because I was bored: https://tapanitella.bandcamp.com/

Morning!

I'm Wotansp, from Spain. I am here to offer any help I can provide at localizing your game into spanish.
I am a professional translator with (luckily) some spare time, and as a big fan of adventure games, and somebody who grew with The Dig, Full Throttle and so on... I'd help gladly.

I can also help with writing the story, or creating characters. I'm my free time I've written a lot of short fiction and I am finishing my first novel.
My fav genres are historical fiction, thrillers and overall, dystopias.

Take into account, if you are a small dev or a very little indie dev team, I won't charge for any help.

Just send me an e-mail if you need that your game needs a touch of magic (non-tech, I can barely go beyond a printf hello world)

Hello my name is Kassandra Ost

I can help out with coding and scripting.

Currently my skills are limited but I'm posting this in hopes someone with a small hobby project who needs help will respond. The reason being is I learn best from experience, so this case being my services are currently free, but still amateurish.

I am also able to do basic sprites.

Heya!

Having just finished work on Neofeud, I am now looking to future projects to work on.

I did all of the story writing, programming, artwork, animation, almost all of the music, and voice acting for the main characters in Neofeud.  Here are some samples of my work below:

Music for Champions
Looking for some interesting opportunities to compose music for. I started creating stuff twelve years ago after being inspired by the music in the King's Quest II remake by AGD Interactive, so needless to say adventure gaming is an essential element in my work.

Anyway, my name is Jon Babb and I mostly create orchestral pieces. The examples posted below are more dramatic and stand out, but I can make subtle background pieces as well:

Soul Strings
Lady of the Light
The Journey Home
The Graceful Maiden
As My Heart Beats

Please, if you have a project that you are working on and you need music then just send me a message or email me at: music@jonbabb.com
I am always open to any project, so just ask!

Hi there! I create music using acoustic, orchestral and world instruments, various keyboards, synths, found sound, chopped and transformed vocal and percussion samples and sometimes all of the above. I play several instruments and have a degree in Music Technology, and in my spare time I also develop my own games, which gives me a helpful insight into your end of the process. Above all else I love to innovate and experiment.

I've created music for over thirty games in many different styles, working with each client to find the perfect sound to meet the tone, atmosphere and story of their game. The cost of my work depends on your needs, but I always keep my prices reasonable as I love being able to work on interesting indie projects. I love trying new things, so let me know what you're looking for and I'll be happy to make you a demo, free of charge and at no obligation.

Head to my simple one-page website to hear my work, read more about what I do and get in touch!



Testimonials:
“All I can say is that if you are looking for some original music, then think seriously about talking with Geoff.” - Kes, Gemelle Games (A Timely Intervention)

"I like Geoff's style, and I'm honestly not sure he could create a bad piece if he tried. Hire him, you won't regret it." - Brian, Tiny Goblin Productions (The Book Of Shadows)

Silver Spook Games Wants Your Story
« Reply #34 on: 03 May 2017, 05:26 »

Hi AGSers, I've been putting this out there to the internets and figured I'd give you folks a heads up on it as well, as there are some pretty writerly folks that populate these here woods.
 
I'm currently looking at potentially working with a writer to turn their story into a game -- most likely a story-heavy adventure game. I've been posting my recently released adventure game, Neofeud, a lot, but here's a link for convenience: https://silverspook.itch.io/neofeud
 
I was the sole developer (writer, programmer, art, animation, music, etc), and I'm interested in potentially doing something similar, but collaborating with a writer.
 
If you already have a great story on hand with a cool setting, compelling characters, somewhat original, I'm looking at just kind of converting the existing story into a game format.  My favorite flavors are sci-fi, cyberpunk, post-apoc, and the like, but doesn't have to be that.  Investigative / mystery type stuff tends to work well for adventure games, but doesn't necessarily have to be pigeonholed there either.   Story is King, as they say.
 
Let me know if anyone is interested, thanks!

Hello there!
  My name is Tamara and I've been doing voice over professionally for over 5 years. Credits include ARK, Dragon Ball Super, Shiness, Atelier Firis and more. I work out of my home studio, which is equipped with a double wall booth, CAD GXL2200 Mic, and Preamp. I can be directed live via Skype or Source Connect.

My rate is $200/hr unless you have something like 3 or 5 lines that need to be done, then we can negotiate.

Demos





Additional demos and samples can be heard on my website: http://www.tamararyanvo.com/

My process
If we work together, what I need is a full and completed script. This will help cut down on costs since we won't have to keep re-recording every time there is a script change. I normally record at 44100 kHz 16-bit and deliver .wav files. If you require a different setting, just let me know. I'm also very flexible and can usually record your script within a day or two.

Testimonials
“From the second I heard her audition I knew that Tamara was going to be an outstanding addition to our cast. As the game’s central protagonist Tamara’s work had to be exceptional and she delivered in spades. She was a delight to direct and I’m looking forward to working with her again.”

- Michael Csurics (Brightskull Entertainment Group)

"Tamara did a wonderful job executing on a very unusual set of voice assets. There were no words; only exertions, grunts, yelling and suffering. But even with those primal noises, Tamara was still able to convey the female's brave survivalist character we had envisioned for our project all along."

- Stephen Baker (Studio Wildcard)


Keep in Touch!

I understand you might not need voice over right this instant, so please follow me on Twitter or Facebook so we can keep in touch!

Thank you so much and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hello everyone!

My name is Bryan Davis and I have a love for good games and great music! I work full time as a game composer, and love every minute of it. Music is something special, something magical. Whether we realize it or not, music has a huge impact on our attitudes and emotions. When someone is angry, often times they will listen to music that drives their anger even further. When at peace, many people will turn to soft strings or pianos to drift further into their blissful state. Sometimes, when people are having a bad day, they turn to uplifting and inspiring music to try and bring themselves out of the mire they’ve found themselves in. Our attitudes dictate the music we listen to and, in turn, the music we listen to dictates our emotions.

Emotions, that is the role of music in video games. To create an emotional landscape for the player to dive into. As a composer, it is my job to create that atmosphere. To use my powers of audio manipulation to control the very emotions of every soul that plays your game (I feel so powerful!). Music is my passion, it’s what drives me as I journey through life. Here on this thread I'd like to share some of my music. I do hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you’d like to enlist my musical powers for your worthy cause (Gaming is a very worthy cause!), simply send me a message and tell me about your project. Most of my work is orchestral, but I do have a few chiptunes in my portfolio. If you don't hear what you're looking for, message me anyway. I love trying out new styles and am always looking for a new challenge to tackle! My rates vary depending on the project, but will usually fit any budget. So let's join forces, and together we shall conquer the world! Or…well…at least a small corner of the gaming world. Yes, that, we shall conquer!

Hello,

I've been illustrating for a while now and would love to be involved with game art.  Some of my work is available at NickCanton.com and my instagram @ndcanton, and I can send more over if you reach out.  I'm also interested in applying my skills to styles that I don't have in my portfolio (pixel art, for example) and would be happy to discuss stylistic departures.

Look forward to working together,

Nick
