  • Free Game Dev Mentorship … For Procedural Games…

    Posted on June 29th, 2017 admin No comments

    Hi,

    I’m offering another free mentorship. This one is focused for anyone that works on procedural or user-generated games…the mentorship would last 2 weeks. We would meet on Skype or e-mail daily and discuss any technical or design challenges you may have.

    Preference will be given to students.

    I am open to all genres. My only request is that the main focus of the game be non-violent.
    To get a feel for how the mentorship would work, check out the podcast with some high school students that released their first game…that also got steam greenlit…with help from the mentorship… http://www.indiegamepod.com/?p=3330

    Submissions are open until 11 pm eastern time, July 1st, 2017

    If you are interested, e-mail support at indiegamepod dot com

    Posted on June 21st, 2017 admin 1 comment

    Hi folks,

    I am thinking of new and interesting ways to contribute to the game dev community…I want to try some new stuff…and so I wanted to know what freebie you would like next…here are some ideas I have…

    1) A book on User-generated/Data-generated Games

    2) An open source project…to release code or some assets to benefit game developers…I’m open to suggestions here

    3) Another free mentorship

    4) Articles and tutorials on math in games

    5) Some other idea or suggestion you have

    Let me know…I was thinking about experimenting with an open source project related to games…or maybe even an open source game to share with players.

    Anyways…place your vote or suggestion below 🙂

    Hey folks,

    I enjoyed the most recent game dev mentorship I offered…

    and I’m going to offer another Game Dev mentorship that would last for 1 to 2 weeks. This is open to any individual or team…from high school student to senior citizen…working on a game or augmented reality experience.

    During the mentorship, we would meet over Skype or e-mail daily to discuss the details, challenges, and ideas needed to get your game/augmented reality experience done.

    Preference will be given to students.

    I am open to all genres. My only request is that the main focus of the game be non-violent.

    If no mentorship requests match the type of game I would like to help with, no game will be chosen.

    If you or your team is interested, e-mail me at support at indiegamepod dot com…this offer is open until 11 pm pacific time, May 19th, 2017

    Hey folks,

    The first game dev mentorship was interesting and I enjoyed it.

    I’m going to offer another Game Dev mentorship that would last for 1 or 2 weeks. This is open to any individual or team…from high school student to senior citizen.

    During the mentorship, we would meet over Skype or e-mail daily to discuss the details, challenges, and ideas needed to get your game done.

    Based on the first mentorship, here are the benefits I’ve seen you would get…
    a) You have someone to help keep you focused on finishing your project

    b) You get experience with some of the subtle nuances of game development and learn ways to be a better game developer/designer

    c) You get good insights into the business and marketing aspects of game development

    d) You get technical/programming help as needed to finish your project

    If you or your team is interested, e-mail me at support at indiegamepod dot com…this offer is open until March 20th, 2016

  • Free Game Dev Mentorship…

    Posted on January 31st, 2016 IndieGamePod No comments

    Hey folks,

    Part of the show involves giving away free stuff to indie developers. One of the more popular freebies was a free mobile game design book released a couple years ago.

    This year, we’re going to try something different…I’m going to offer free game dev mentorship for 2 weeks to any indie game dev/team that is working on a casual game.

    This mentorship would involve giving you feedback on technical, marketing, and business issues…every day via e-mail or Skype.

    Once your game gets done, I’m also happy to do an interview about the game to post on the show.

    The goal of this mentorship experiment is to see if this show should offer this new type of freebie to the mix of stuff we give out on the show.

    If you or your team is interested, e-mail me at support at indiegamepod dot com … this offer is open until February 7th, 2016.

    Feel free to post questions about the mentorship below 🙂

  • Corona SDK Contest Winner…

    Posted on November 28th, 2011 IndieGamePod 1 comment

    And the winner is…no one.

    Looking at the submissions, I’ve decided that none of them are going to be worthwhile to publish on the market. I wanted to let everyone know. Usually there is a winner in a contest, but I think this time…it’s worth saving the SDK license for another occasion.

    The folks that submitted a .apk to the contest are welcome to contest the final results 🙂

    Maybe there should be a more drawn-out contest? Maybe something month long? I’m open to suggestions. Let me know what you think 🙂

  • Free Friday: Corona SDK Contest

    Posted on November 11th, 2011 IndieGamePod 4 comments

    Hey folks,

    Ansca Mobile was nice enough to donate a pro version of the Corona SDK to the show.

    We’re going to have a contest to determine who wins the copy.

    Basically, anyone that submits a mobile game idea/concept/almost-completed/completed project by 5 pm on Monday will be considered for the prize.

    The team that wins the copy will be the submission that is most likely to have a successful mobile game on the market. Here’s a hint, the closer you are to having a solid game completed, the better your chances are of winning.

    The great thing about Corona is that it allows you to literally make a game in a few hours. So you can complete a solid game for submission before Monday 🙂

    Enjoy and feel free to ask contest clarifications in the comments below 🙂
