Hello! I have two jobs I need people to do, starting as soon as possible. If you're a programmer or a web developer, I need you! If you're not, find your friends who are. For both jobs, I am interested in finding someone who can work full-time on them if possible. I'll consider people who can't put as many hours in, but I'd really like these things to get done quickly. I'm offering hourly pay at a rate we agree on, or we can consider other forms of compensation if you would like. Here are the jobs:
NPC Quest 2
My previous programmer had to leave this project, so I am looking for a programmer to code this game. Not much has been done, so you can really start from scratch if need be in the language/tools of your choice. This is a top-down isometric 2D action-RPG, designed for as many platforms as possible, in this order of preference: iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Everything Else On Earth. So the more of those you can cover with one codebase, the better. It's not a very big game - it's what I would call a "3 month project" (which means it'll take about 9 months if we really rush). You can see a few more vague details in the previous Journal entry
The existing code is in Haxe, and I have an earlier prototype in Actionscript, but like I said, there isn't much written, so I am open to any tool that can develop for those platforms. I'm the designer on the project (my dream job!), and I have an artist who is dying to get back to doing more art once we have some more code available.
For this job, I need to see evidence of your ability to create mobile games, preferably in the form of a finished and released game. If you don't have that, I'm willing to talk, but hopefully you've got something else very impressive to prove you can do it! I know that even long-time professionals fail to complete projects at least half the time, so proof of the ability to see something through to completion is my #1 priority.
I'm looking for a web developer to completely redo the Hamumu website, top to bottom. This is a huge job, and I'm looking for somebody who can handle all the aspects - not just a CSS makeover, but diving into the PHP and MySQL monstrosity that lies beneath, so what we end up with is a website that works cleanly on mobile devices and PCs, meets modern standards, runs smoothly and bug-free, includes nearly all the existing social features I've built like Dumb Pages and Trophies, looks mighty pretty, and includes tools for me to update easily like a CMS. I recognize that this is no small feat, but I'm very ready to get it done!
The site is currently hand-carved from antique PHP and MySQL running on an Apache server. But like the other project, I don't care if you want to switch this over to a completely different technology (as long as it runs in web browsers...), just so long as you can import the existing data to it. All I'm looking for is an awesome website that does more than just advertise my games - it's a (simplified) social site.
So, if either job sounds like something you can do, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
with your resume and whatever questions you have and we'll get to talking!
If it sounds nothing like what you can do, then email your friends who do this stuff, and tell them
to email me, because I want to get this stuff done this year!
