Hola Everyone

I'm an animator/technical artist by day who has worked on a few Unity games. Dabbled in game dev when I was a young'un on my Amiga and really liking the html5 game scene. Seems similar to Flash games early days.

Picked up ImpactJS last night and plan on diving in to it this week.

Glad to be on here and apart of what looks to be a great community

 

cheers

Brian

Hello everyone!

I've been developing non commercial games and websites for a while now , And I've been reading many articles and books about the new awesome HTML5 platform,

And took interest in it, I plan to create a website to showcase my games and have a lot of games on it, and read much more articles and see what html5 game devs here have to say before I even attempt to get involved into the market.

I hope I can earn a lot of good knowledge from reading other's stories , etc..

Happy html5 game developing , everyone!

Hi all,

 

I've been a hobbyist games programmer for a long time now (my first ever game was a text adventure on an old Sinclair QL my Dad had!). Over the years I've made games ranging from command line Tic-Tac-Toe, 2d networked beat 'em ups and even J2ME phone games. About 3 years ago wanted to make the move from desktop to the web/mobile in my day job so HTML5 games seemed to be a perfect way to learn the new skills. 

 

I'm currently working on my first "professional" game that I plan to release with the intention (hopes, dreams and prayers :P) of making some money - even just to tick it off my bucket list! (I've recently emigrated from Ireland so any bit of extra cash coming in would be very handy!).

 

Thanks to Rich, the moderators and everyone else involved in running the site - it's a great resource!

Welcome! Karoshi is great, I remember the original from back in the day :)

 

Thanks. Jesse's been considering bringing a Karoshi game to HTML5 but in all honesty I wouldn't know how he's been faring with that. That said, we've also been working on a C++ game called 'New Karoshi' which you should be looking forward to. ;)

Hello guys! I'm Overloaded and I'm an indie game developer. I use GameMaker: Studio Professional + HTML5 module, but I haven't made any HTML5 games yet... although some HTML5 games are on the making right now. :) And of course I'll make even more in the future. I'm also a member of GMC (GameMaker Community).

So yeah, hello everyone! :D

Better late then never.... so a big hello to this community. I am Michael Hartlef and participating in this phenomenan called "Indie game development" for quite some time. Mostly working on tools and SDKs in the beginning but lately working on my own stuff too. Right now I am evaluating the best tool for my html5 mobile projects. Monkey, which I am using since it is out, GM:S and now Phaser. For a year I am also doing game art for clients. That actually was the most profitable area for me regarding game develpment. To show off my efforts, I have a few websites that concentrate on each area.

@Rich: Thanks for providing such a great place which is filled with great informations.

Hi All,

This is a great community! I've been browsing and posting a little since last week.

 

I used to do Flash games for Armor Games and Newgrounds and also have published a couple mobile games. I've worked on a social network game at a company in Japan, and now I'm trying to make it on my own in any way I can!

 

I really like the idea of HTML5 games as the games are small and quick to develop, and it's a challenge to make something for a broad audience (in stead of doing some obscure indie game for a niche market, though that is fun too). They say HTML5 games are "crappy" but I think the audience will start to expect better and better quality so it should be a great learning experience to try and keep up with that.

Hi there!

 

I've already posted a few times about my GameMaker engine, but I thought I'd come and introduce myself anyway. I'm an independent developer with titles published to iOS, Android, Windows Phone and Windows 8. My projects there have been doing OK, but not spectacularly. I've been interested in making HTML5 games for a while now but never really got myself going. That's all changing now as I've released my first independent html5 game here: http://www.marketjs.com/game/store-room and I hope to release many more in future!

 

I also hope that I can come here and help in any way possible, I will try to share code snippets and my unused graphics (which I have a lot of) when I can. Thanks and nice to meet you,

 

Dan.

Hi,

 

My names Rich "Squize" Myles, and I'm a Flash dev coming over to the dark side ;) ( That's a great way to make myself popular from the start isn't it ).

 

I'm involved in two indie studios,

 

GamingYourWay http://blog.gamingyourway.com

 

Which is pretty much a legacy thing now which I just don't ever want to fully sever ties with, and our new baby,

 

Garage Collective http://www.garage-collective.com

 

I'm looking to branch out into new platforms, so both mobile and mobile browser, hence me joining ( Plus being mates with Rich )

 

And I think that's it from my hello world post. Hopefully I'll be an active and useful member of the community and I'm looking forward to getting to know you guys.

 

Squize.

Greetings from Puerto Rico :P

 

I'm Aristides one of the very few established Video Game developers in PR. I've been an indie dev for the past five years, working with programming, Art and game design. My tool of preference is Game maker which is where most of my experience is based on. I signed up because I'm gearing up for a strong push on HTML5 so I'm planning on becoming an active member on your community, I hope I can get acquainted with you guys. :)

 

Cheers!

Hi, I've been following this forum since it was created as I'm a photonstorm fan :) but I never posted anything before. I've been developing native mobile games for many years. I love the html5 ecosystem and I think it's time to explore it. I hope you can help me! ;)

Hi! I'm new here. I'm primarily into doing art for games (PC & mobile so far) here is my portfolio: http://www.behance.net/SterlingDee  I'm also current doing business development (accounting/tax/general business stuff) on a game being released on Steam next yr as I'm a CPA, CA in "real life" 

 

The only programming language I know is Visual Basic as I used to study business information systems. I would like to learn some javascript and make my own small games or collaborate with someone else on more polished ones.

Hi everyone! It's great to see HTML5 gaining momentum and seeing more and more quality games being produced.

 

I'm a full-time game developer at a studio and used to make Flash games in my own free time. I've always followed HTML5 game development news and now instead of observing from the sidelines I've decided to jump right in and start making a few games of my own!

 

Really hope to learn from all of you here and looking forward to creating my first HTML5 game!

 

Vincent
