Title: OROW Dating Thread
Post by: Baron on 04 Aug 2015, 05:54
Yeah, that's right. ;-D

I've collaborated with many an AGSer in my day, and in just about every circumstance I've discovered a great sense of camaraderie and an admirable skill-set far beyond my own abilities.  From Ascovel's philosophy and game-analysis to Radiant's unholy scripting abilities, and from Problem's brilliant musical powers to Yarooze's unshakeable optimism, and from Cat's careful attention to detail to Ponch's eerie ability to belch and snore at the same time, I genuinely feel as if these collaborative relationships have helped me grow as a developer and a person.

Thus, with about three weeks to go before OROW, I'm thinking about partnering up.  Hey, maybe I'll hook up with someone and maybe I won't, but for now I'm interested in seeing what's out there on the singles scene.  I'd probably be interested in working with someone I haven't before, at least in a major capacity -getting back together with an ex is rarely a good idea. ;)  What am I looking for in a relationship?  Well, this is more of a one-week fling, so exnay on the long-term ommitmentcay (Baron doesn't need any clinging vines).  Ability to communicate and compromise would be key.  I'm not so fussy about specific skills or experience, since I've been around the block a few times and could probably fill in any gaps. :=  My ideal partner would be aged 18-63, not because I'm ageist but because I'm not entirely convinced that my mom didn't make an account here at some point and I don't think our relationship can handle the kind of pressure that OROW would inflict. (roll)

So what about me?  I have absolutely no pre-conceived ideas about plot or game-style for the competition (parameters to be announced, I'm sure), but I have been thinking it'd be nice to experiment with a new drawing style I've been developing.  I'm young at heart but lengthening in the tooth, quick to laugh and slow to anger, mildly disorganized and often pressed for time.  I like long walks on the beach except when there are jellyfish involved, but I hate pina coladas!  What are they made out of, anyway?  Sour cream?  Guh!

All right, so let's see what kind of action is out there!  Don't get put-off if I dance with more than one of you as I shop the market -I intend to inspect the goods before I make a purchase.  :)   Even if there's not enough hours in the competition to work with everyone, rest assured that my heart is big enough to love you all. :-*

So.... Wanna dance? ♫

Have you told Ponch your seeing other co-developers?

I'm free OROW week.  My biggest turn-ons are unique game projects and easy-to-work-with co-developers, and turn-offs include poorly documented code and missed deadlines.

As thus far all my adventure game-making endeavours have been generally solo but I have been playing with the idea of teaming up this OROW. Twice the members, twice the fun; or something along those lines. ;D
But I'm quite serious when it comes to OROWs; it is my favourite competition and I like to see them through. My last two attempts left me not very satisfied; it's just too much work for me all alone to pull off the kind of games I'd like to make. So to turn this into a proper dating message:

My strong points would be: Programming, world building, writing and music. I also bring a sense of organisation without the adverse effects that a planning and schedules often have. ;)
As long as we're doing this also, weak points: My puzzle designs are not very good usually and often feel more like chores. And I'm a recovering perfectionist which can potentially pop up now and then and work on one's nerves. ;)

What I look for in a partner would be someone who is not afraid to think outside of the box, dares to dream, has a lush imagination and capable of producing art and puzzles.

That's how you write these right, right?  8-)

But seriously: I'm going to be available for OROW and I'm most definitely going to work on something and am very keen on having it done before the deadline. Yes I would love to team up. (nod)

Wow, talk about a shallow dating pool.... It's kind of like Clan of the Cave Bear in here. (roll)  Oh well, I guess I'll start dancing with Dualnames while Wyz & kconan make out in the corner (MiteWiseacreLives watches from the sidelines).  Ponch can be that creepy chaperone that stares just a little too hard over his old-man glasses. :undecided:

So Dualnames, you've got three sentences to convince me that you could get out of this scenario: You are stuck in an elevator with a ninja, a cowboy and a very hungry grizzly bear.  The ninja has a sword, the cowboy a pistol with six bullets and a holster to carry it, and the bear has the severed arm of his previous victim (with an expensive watch still attached).  You are carrying a road flare, a lighter, spare shoe laces, and some zombie serum that you just stole from Apocalyptical Labs up on the 13th floor.  Oh, and a breath mint, just in case. ;)

Get with the times, daddy-o. That's not how AGS Tinder works. Swipe to the left or swipe to the right. Jumping through hoops and proving your intent is for old people. Game development today is all about the casual hookup, baby. :=

Enough of your crazy swinger hipsterisms, P.  Your solution to everything is orgy, orgy, orgy....(roll)  I'm not shopping for a casual fling here: I need something resembling a reliable -if extremely truncated - relationship.  Just randomly doing it with whoever "swipes to the left" is about as enlightened a dating strategy as randomly dialling a phone number and trying to do it with whoever picks up.  No, call me hopelessly romantic, but there's gotta be at least a spark to light the tinder.  Something besides just cheep booze and sweaty raunchy animal pheromones.  I haven't deluded myself into believing that I'm going to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right in this process, but I don't think I'm selling myself short by insisting on at least basic compatibility.  I know some folks feel different, and all the power to them, but I gotta think it'd be just a little self-defeating to invest so much lustful effort into trying to ram a square peg into a round hole.  I think all the quick and easy AGSers should migrate over to their own "OROW Speed-Dating Thread" and leave the rest of us old-fashioned types to get on with the serious business right here. :-*

Ouch, yeah, still waiting by the phone here Dualnames....  Keepin' the candle lit in the window....  Running out of daisy petals to pick off....  Was it my hair?  It was my hair wasn't it?  I get helmet-head, ok!  Just cause there's a little snow on the roof doesn't mean the furnace ain't roaring, y'know.  Maybe you're just playing hard to get cause you know it drives me wild, but I don't think I could respect myself if I keep letting you toy with my heart like this.  So... you know, I think we should dance with other people.  *GASP!*  Yeah, you heard me.  You take your pulsating Greek hips and jitterbug on over to dance with kconan, while I attempt to tango with Wyz.  MiteWiseacreLives remains in his wallflower position, and Ponch graduates to senile old relative who keeps barking dating pointers out to us young whipper-snappers.  :)

So Wyz....  I see you pretend to live North Brabant.  I once walked from Eindhoven to Uden because I couldn't speak enough Dutch to figure out how to use a bus.  You have three sentences to paint my stubborn self-defeating xeno-cluelessness in a favourable light of masculine bravado and fearless ingenuity: go!

Dualnames is out of my league.  I'm going to sit over here in the corner of the bar and people watch for now.

By the way, there is nothing wrong with a 3-way or a 4-way right?  I don't mean Caligula-esque Swarm size, but small teams of compatible people can crank out more.

Well I don't know if I can dance the tango without elongating and flattening your toes but I've got a great sense of rhythm so I'll be stumping on your feet in an albeit rhythmical fashion. Perhaps I could teach you some Dutch so you're future wanderings through the lower parts of the Netherlands leave your feet not aching and slightly more comfortable in a warm damp whiffy bus; heck I might even teach you to pronounce your last name correctly ;). Other than that, let's dance and have a good time and all that before Ponch stinks up the place even further. ;-D

Post by: Baron on 14 Aug 2015, 04:45
Look out!  Ponch is in high-gear pick-up mode!  Maybe we should all stick together in this very public dance hall, for safety's sake. (roll)

I like how Wyz returned my call instead of leaving me to stew for three days, and his moustache appears to be better groomed than that of certain other dancers here.  The offer of elocution lessons was a bit pretentious, though. ;)  Anyway, that's a pretty solid plus two.  But to be fair, I should see what moves some of these other fellas can bust before I commit to anything.

So, on to kconan, who has very helpfully published photos of himself in his sharp orange suit to help me with my decision.  Right now I'm wearing a garment of bright yellow feathers, which makes me afraid that if we're seen in close proximity people might mistakenly get a hallowe'eny-vibe from us.  You have three sentences to set my Fashion-Faux-Pas-O-Meter at ease.  Go!

In the meantime, MiteWiseacreLives continues to creepily try to pick-up Ponch, while Dualnames leaves the dance floor to take a Wyz. (laugh)

Those who didn't dress up for the "Jim Carrey as Lloyd OR Big Bird Costume Competition" are the only people in danger of committing a faux pas at this bar.

Blarghh, I'm now souring a bit on OROW...I wasn't aware until just now that preexisting assets/resources are allowed.

Nope.  In fact, you and/or Ponch could be working on a Toilet Tycoon sequel (for MAGS or just as a non-comp game) and I'd be game to join up.  You guys are talented, easy to work with, and you actually release games.  I've worked on a number of games that I either never heard anything about again or were scrapped by the lead developer.

My annoyance is that OROW, which sounds like a really cool and tough IT reality show, sorta becomes One Room Unlimited Weeks if you can use preexisting graphics and code.
Title: Re: OROW Dating Thread
Post by: Wyz on 15 Aug 2015, 03:18
Well that has always been a rule; but that only goes for resources made publicly available, meaning that everyone has to have access to them. This is mostly to allow use of plugins and modules since reusing art (unless you are making a RON or OSD game) is really not all that useful. It would also not be in the spirit of the competition to already start working on something before it really has started. I guess that you can already think of story ideas vaguely but anything more involved than that would be a no-no. Even having ideas like 'I'm going to make a platform game for OROW' on forehand would be a bit dubious if you ask me but even more strongly: you would not experience the true absolutely mind-sucking chaos that is the first few hours of OROW which is an amazing phenomenon you surely don't want to miss out on. It is stuff like that that keeps us on-edge and in a creative spiral where no one really knows where it ends. :-D

There have been different rules for different OROW.

My time zone is Hawaii so I'm basically I'm 11/12 hours behind the UK, unfortunately.  Fortunately, I tend to do work in the mornings, so if you're on in your evenings the scheduling might work.

Oh, and for my curric vitae / dating profile, my previous game was Terminus Machina (http://www.moddb.com/mods/terminus-machina).  A very different animal, I know.  I guess that would make hooking up with a native AGS'er kind of interspecies, but I'm also a big fan of Splice, so it should work out.

This thread seems like a lot of harmless flirty fun guys, but just be careful it doesn't get hacked and have its secrets spilled over the internet for the whole world to see...

That kind of thing seems to be going on a lot recently...

And remember:

Life is short. Have an affair. ;)

*shyly enters dancefloor and drops some sick moves* O0

I like long walks on the beach and painting backgrounds. I also enjoy the sounds my body makes when nobody is listening and I like making my own SFX. I'm looking for a clever significant other who can code and also has no idea yet what this all will be about.
I am not opposed to group efforts (nod)

Maybe I'm your girl then. ;) I'm not super awesome at coding, but I know enough to put together a game as long as it's not something too complicated.

What I like about this dating thread is that it s considered an advantage to be living in your mom's basement and have no friends... And no one objectifies me for my man cup size.

The Party Wagon doesn't have a trunk, B. It's less of a rolling dungeon and more like a big aquarium back there. :=

Don't get so jealous of your kidnapped team-slaves, P. :P  I've got my own elite squad of katana wielding Euro-hotties now, so I'm no longer in the market. :=

I understand that freedom and awesomeness are foreign, unfamiliar things to you, B. I've seen what Canada looks like... and it looks like fascism to me.

Goodness! So militaristic! Thank goodness I live in America, where we all secretly plot to overthrow our government at the first sign of trouble. It's our Constitutional right! :cheesy:

If you are interested in working with me on an OROW entry, please PM me!

I'm working with Creamy, but we're not really exclusivist, so maybe drop him a line?  He's going to be the majority of the art department for our OROW project.

Is there anybody out there wanting to join in on the fun and wanting to compose some 1-2 original music tracks until deadline?
