 Post Topic: Programmers and Cry engine 3
PostPosted 11.06.2012, 07:55 
Hey,

I am getting ready to take the dive into game development as a full time serious career with CryEngine. Which means contacting the Crytek licensing department for information on the indie license.

Are there any programmers here on the CryDev boards?
Because I have been hunting for a good while now for a programmer for a project of mine and I cannot find one... :/
Which makes me uneasy with choosing the CE3 with this project of mine.

I can come by 3D and 2D artists just fine. . . I just cannot find any programmers . . .

Mainly because I am one (3D/2D Artist)

You're not going to get programmers without a clear prototype to show them. Something tangible.

Prototype gameplay using trackview if you must, or even build basic systems through flowgraph.

Hey, Ultimarage -

Does a game design document count? I have one written up.

If it does not I will prototype my game play with the track view editor :)

Well, people want to see progress and media. Are you familiar with the phrase 'idea guy?'

You can try putting up your GDD, some arts and concepts also help, and if a programmer really likes your gameplay concept, you'll know what to do ;)

Yes I am familiar with the term and we have allot of them around here *Looks at recruitment section*

I do not consider myself an Idea guy - As I know how to 3D Model and Texture plus i can pull my own weight on a project. :)

As far as I am aware Idea guys just give ideas and expect people to do it. Similar to a publisher but a publisher pays you for your work.

Anyways that is the end of my rant.

I thought it would be inappropriate for the recruitment section.

See the first post if you have not already. I am just talking about how uneasy I am with cryengine 3 and the lack of programmers.

BTW feel free to close this thread if needs be. :)

Keep in mind, many of the 'idea guys' in the recruitment section do actually have skills. ;)

You're an idea guy until you actually create something. :P

If you can model and texture, then why don't you create some stuff that you can show off for your concept? Should be easy with a design document written up. :)

If your stuff is good, you will attract programmers. However, there's nothing right now that really says 'This project is awesome, I want to work on it!'

That's how you attract people to help you. Create something awesome, spread it, and people will come naturally.
