Make a retro game. Gain 45$

Looking to build a team or have a job to offer?

Post » Wed Sep 30, 2015 4:33 pm

Hello. In a few weeks I will release new platform. I need some additional hands for that!

If you could do a short, retro styled (early NES) game, based on a theme, this offer is for you!
Fitting into the desired style is, oddly, more important than the game quality:

320x240
Limited color palette.
Famitracker made music (or any simple chiptune music). Obviously, no copyrighted music allowed.
8*8 sprites (or multiplications of that, like 16*8).
4 (sometimes 5) colors per sprite. Avoid shading the sprites.
No special effects.

Send me your portfolio to [email protected] . I will send you a template .capx for game later.
I pay 45$ per game. (Used to be 20$).

Hey vikuserro,

I don't mean to be rude, but $20 per game? can't spend long on a game for $20...

Would I as the dev, keep all my rights? or?

I think you are right. 30$ it is.
Technically the games for this platform are meant to be only available on that platform.

how many games are you looking at getting on this platform?

what exactly is this platform? Is there some kind of perk more then cash?

With construct 2, I can make a game in 1 hour... or even 30 minutes... but to make anything that's worth playing, it would take at least a week... (Even then, it would be a shallow game...)

One hundred+. There will be 12 games done by December.
The platform will be ready to be shown at 20 October, I will make a note here when ready :).
It has pretty meta and self aware vibe to it.
I consider it an art.

A few questions:

-Are the games free on the platform or do you sell the games you buy?
-If it's free, how do you make the money back?
-If you run ads, how do you split the revenue between the developers?

- Technically, I do not sell these games.
- It would spoil a lot to tell.
- No ads. There will be a different model for that, in the future.

Everything will be know by ~20 October. It is a completely new model.
