UPD: by this time (early 2017) I am no longer available, being too busy with existing projects.
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).
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.
