    Needed: Programmer; Not required but experience in networking and shaders would be a plus.

    Payment: Percentage of campaign proceeds if successful. Further compensation to help finish the game.

    This offer has a few risks. I have done as much as I can to mitigate these risks. I cannot guaranty payment until the end of a successful campaign. As an indie dev looking to publishing my first project I do not have the funds to pay upfront but I also believe in compensating people for their work. I would be giving you a portion of the proceeds of a successful campaign as well as additional rev share post launch. If the campaign fails the first time we will polish the game and relaunch the campaign until its successful. I have been working with Gamemaker for at least 10 years. I have used it for college projects and game jams but have not attempted publishing a game at this point. However I have mitigated the risks as I am finished with college and have quit my job so I am working on this full time. We also currently have an artist and composer working on the commercial.

    The game is a top down rouge-lite dungeon crawler. The combat is a bullet hell lite and on console will be utilizing twin stick mechanics. Progress is made by buying upgrades and finding new loot. The visual aesthetic is steampunk as I feel it is a under utilized aesthetic that has always been a huge inspiration to me. More information on the game is available on request. Game Doc is available to those who are interested in joining the project. I also have a WIP demo posted at: https://forum.yoyogames.com/index.php?threads/steampunk-abyss-feed-back-appreciated.58768/

    About Me:
    I have been programming for 12 years, starting when I was twelve years old and my dad began teaching me everything he knew. Two years after learning the basics of C++ and Java I participated in a game dev camp where I first began using Gamemaker Studio. I have worked with it in my spare time for the last ten years. About a year ago I started working on the Steampunk Depths project. However I was working at the time and progress was slow. That's when I decided I wanted to follow my dream of being an indie dev. I quit and began working on this at least 8 hours a day.

    I really hope you get a artist because I went on the site and those are not great. Good luck mate!

    The boss, the Gentleman, is now officially complete. I have also added a few new attack patterns by using my projectile system in a new way. These patterns are burning trails, explosive attacks that spawn additional projectiles, and shots that can pass through specific forms of cover.

    I'm a composer / producer and would love to be your music guy!
    I can actually send you a stream punk type piece I made if you like ;-)

    Best regards,

    Lucas

    I actually just found the people I needed for the trailer. However I would welcome more help after the Kickstarter launches. I wouldn't mind hearing your style either so if you want to send me the clip we can talk about helping with the project later on. You can email it to me or send it to me on Discord at VideoGamester#1352

    Updated my request. I am now looking for an additional programmer to help me put some polish on a few systems.
