Programmer/Writer/Idea Application

Post by CaptainRed on Mon Jul 20, 2015 3:07 pm

Hello, my name is Sean Davis and I have been making very small games for some time now. I've been working for the past couple of weeks to bring you guys a good portfolio, but I just don't have anything to show as of right now. I am currently reading three books on c++ programming, I've finished one, and am part-way through the second book. The third book is a book on the Unreal engine, which I am growing more and more familiar with. I am a huge fan of Sword Art Online, and the second I saw that you guys were making this game, I just knew I wanted to jump on board. I know what you are probably thinking right about now, "He's got nothing really great to show right now. Lets skip it." But I feel that I bring a lot more to the table than you may think. My portfolio would be nice if I weren't already working on a few apps and games with people. My biggest strength is that I am a big idea guy, and I actually wanted a way to contact you privately so I could pitch you my idea on the combat systems. I'm sure you already have that figured out, but when I was working on an RPG a few months back I wanted something more unique, and had this idea for a fantastic combat system. Unfortunately I scrapped the project. But even if you don't want to take me in to help you, I at least would like to contact you to share my idea.

A few other things I would like to talk about are some of my other strengths, and weaknesses.

- I am great at finding bugs and other various glitches.
- Like I said, I am a huge idea guy, if you need a creative idea for something, I'd be your man.
- Creativity has always been one of my strong suits.
- I don't have much on my hands besides a few other projects, so I'd be open pretty often.
- I am very ambitious.
- Helping make this game is a dream of mine

If you aren't looking for any programmers I would also LOVE to be a writer for this game. I do recall in someone else's application that you guys aren't really looking for any more writers, but even then, if there is anything at all you would want me to do in that field, I would love to help. I know skill is a huge thing you guys are looking for, and I may not be an A+ programmer as I am still learning a lot of important details, I definitely make up for it in ideas, creativity, and other qualities like leadership and great team working skills. I watch the show, and I know that you are all doing a creative rendition of this, I still think there are some important ideas and details that I just want to help out with.

For the last part of this application I just want to mention a few things.

- I've done some techno music(not relevant, just mentioning)
- As soon as I saw this game I wanted to jump on board as soon as possible.
- I also have private access to a whole library of programming books spanning thousands of different topics, so if there is anything that you would need from me and I don't quite understand, I am positive I would find the answer.

Even if you don't accept me, please leave me a way of contacting any of you just in case if you wanted to hear any of my ideas of plans.

Thanks Cool
- Sean Davis(Programmer, Writer)

I can also 3D model swords, but I'm not the best at it. I'll post here if I make any.

Hi Sean,

Thank you for your interest in joining Awakened Studio. I like your confidence and enthusiasm, but we really need to see what you can produce. You said you've been working on smalls games/prototypes, and that you're currently working on some game projects with other people, we're interested to see what you've done.

I'm also interested to hear about your combat system idea (and other ideas if you want), just PM me about it or msg me on skype using the icons right there on the left.

Thanks,
-Owex [Co-founder, Awakened Studio]

I have been having major trouble with uploading the demo videos, so I had to take screenshots instead. On the last couple pictures, I decided to create a short c++ program, just to prove that I am capable of programming. I understand that what I did is not ideal as you would rather have a c++ game from me, but the games and prototypes I have in c++ are at other computers, and I only do programming, as you can see in some of the pictures, art is defanately not my strongest suit. However, if you need any floor/level designers, I could make the outline or prototype for a floor to show you(I would have already, but I don't really know what positions you need.)

A space game:



A First person shooter:




The c++ code:




Please ask if there is anything in particular that you would want to see to assess my skills more thoroughly because I don't really have that much on this new computer I am using.

Here is a quick example of a sword I made. I understand you want lower poly models, but its just a quick example. Not my best work, but still, better than nothing! Smile

I feel like I would be best in programming or designing the floors. I am working on a map right now to show you, but I'll put it on hold until you tell me what you think of everything else so you don't get overwhelmed.

Here is an example of a small scale map I quickly made, in case if there is any floor design positions:

- Small cyllandars = trees or tree clusters
- Big cyllandars = Dungeons
- Extremely low elevations = Lakes(didn't have space
  to add in rivers)
- Cubes = towns





Sorry if it seems like I'm spamming, I'm just really motivated lol Very Happy

The map I just put up is just a prototype which means when I scale it up its going to have hills and other features, just in case if you were wondering

Joey should review your codes soon.

As for level design and game design, I think it's not really something we can judge just by a small application, so I'd be open to give it a try with you; see how you work and how you think.
