Have you ever worked on a video game?

Recommended Posts

I am currently trying to learn Yoyogames gamemaker. I wish to some day release something on android. So far yet to reach any specific progress on this.

I'm a part of a team the makes the occasional ROM-hack, but mostly originals. If I had a job title, it would be "thinker". I think up scenarios or stories that I think would make decent to good games, and give them to the guys that write the software. If they like it they work on it. If it's just a quick thought or they think it could be the next major franchise they have me work on storyline even more. Sometimes that damn near turns into a novel, other times it's a bad case of writers block. It's not a paid job unless we start having a paying demand for games. But at the moment it's just something we do for fun. I got the job by word of mouth from people talking about my writing abilities. So I have fun with it. I get to see my name in the credits under "Story By" so that's always really cool. I don't remember exactly who it was, but someone got the cheapest Switch cartridge he could find to erase it so he could put one of our games on it. I don't think he's been successful yet. But that's the ambition of the team. When they want something new they call me, let me know the type of game they're wanting, and I get to thinking shit up. Whether it's a children's game or an adult game, I write up what I can, and away we go.

I wonder if there are any free game engines and the people who are forming groups to work on those games. Like you know those hackathons type free and open source games?
