    Hello, there!

    Introduction:
    My name is Reuben. I have been working with GameMaker in a hobbyist fashion since 2004 and am extremely fluent in GML. I also have a lot of experience in related languages, such as C++ / Java, which has allowed me to create numerous extensions for various platforms. I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor degree in Computer Science and am currently freelancing as part of my main income.

    Examples:
    For the past several years most of my work has gone towards stand-alone engine elements rather than entire games. I have written numerous systems such as a 3D rendering engine (discontinued), RPG battle systems, numerous artificial intelligence systems, procedural world creation, 2D lighting systems and much more.

    Recent Examples:
    I am working on re-building my portfolio with more recent projects so my "Recent Examples" section is a bit sparse. If you are interested in seeing some of my older discontinued projects then you can take a look at my older works below. While they aren't extremely up-to-date examples of my coding style and abilities, they do show off the kind of work I am familiar with.

    Older Works:
    I have experience working with source control services such as Github and Bitbucket as well as using the Agile/Scrum software development methodology.

    Desired Work:
    I am willing to work on projects large or small. I can design custom one-off extensions for your project or work longer-term and implement parts of your game directly. My programming methods generally provide modular code that can be easily modified and/or updated down the line if required.

    If you want the quickest turnaround time then your best option would be requesting a custom extension that you then plug in yourself. If you are not in a hurry or require something more unique and/or complicated then a full-time hire might be more beneficial.

    I currently have access to GMS1.4 with all modules and GMS2.x with Desktop and Mobile modules. This said, I do not have access to iOS or MacOS so I cannot develop for these platforms specifically in terms of external libraries.

    Further Support:
    I provide one calendar year of technical support starting the day of payment in full / final payment. This includes covering bug fixes for any issues you come across and any questions you may have regarding the extension.

    I also always provide full documentation in the form of script headers and, depending on the size / complexity of the job, I may include further documentation in the form of a PDF file or webpage-based instance along with examples. The later being at my discretion or if specifically requested by the client.

    Contact, Contract, and Payment:
    If you are interested or have any questions about my services you can contact me via one of the following:
    Email: binsk@disroot.org
    Matrix: user: @binsk:matrix.org, room: #bcf:matrix.org (recommended client)

    I am not willing to sign into a profit share agreement in most cases. If you have a record of previously successful games and effective marketing practices then I may consider it but otherwise I require direct payment for a completed job.

    If the job is a one-off extension then generally I can give a quote of my estimated price for the entire project. If you require a longer-term and/or complex project to be completed then I can perform the work in individual sprints where each sprint would be handled like it's own job with a quote and payout.

    For any project quoted over $200 I require a legally binding contract to be signed via HelloSign. Because of this you must be the required age to sign a legally binding contract in your country. Once the work has been completed I will send you the invoice of the final payment. This invoice will need to be paid in full before I release any of the code.

    Unfortunately, due to some disagreements with recent Paypal and Mastercard practices I will only accept payment in the from of cryptocurrency. If you have never used crypto before then I will give you a 30% discount on the final quoted price and offer to step you through acquiring and sending crypto in order to make up for the time of learning how to use it.

    All transactions will be performed using CoinPayments as they provide payment tracking, currency conversion, purchase history, and invoices for crypto assets. They do not require an account in order to use the service. My preferred currencies in order of preference are Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ether, Bitcoin Cash, and the Gemini Dollar. I may be willing to consider other coins as well if you so desire.

    If you have any questions please free feel to contact me. Thank you for considering my services.

    I am now open for further projects but my schedule is looking a little wonky for the next several weeks.

    There may be an extra week delay with any new jobs until around mid December 2016.

    Thank you.

    Binsk is a great guy to work with. He has been helping me out for awhile now and contributed some great code for my project I am currently working on. I hope to continue working with him in the future. Thanks Binsk!

    I am now reopening shop and thus bumping this topic. I expect to have somewhat limited time until the end of August (2019) and thus will prioritize smaller projects or projects that don't require fast returns until then.

    After that point, however, I will have significantly more time and should be able to provide much faster results. I am happy to take any offers starting today, however.

    Thank you.

    Made some changes to my portfolio and the kind of work I'm doing, I'm taking most kinds of jobs now. My time is very open at this point so I should be able to finish jobs very quickly; especially if they are extension requests.
