Unfortunately the associates degree was a focus on Web design, but I decided I wanted to get into game development. So, at this point I don't have much knowledge of the core programming languages, game engines, and 3d modeling programs. I am hoping to transfer my credits over to a university and finish with a bachelors in 2 years, while acquiring all the knowledge I need to get into the game dev industry.
Yes I am the founder of Eden Industries. I'm surprised you knew that! Thanks for the reminder to fill out my profile though. I'll definitely do that and I'm excited to get to know the folks around here.
"Nick - have you had many people playtest the game, outside of your family?"
Thanks for asking!
I've had I'd say 2 people playtest it, with me watching, but IndieDB tells me that at least 415 people have downloaded my beta. And about 13 people have told me that they played it, that I don't know in person.
My idea for a game is not a game at all. It's a grand tour of the Bible. A somewhat interactive approach; in where you're able to virtually walk through the Bible. For example: Lets say you click on to the book of Matthew. There you go on to chapter 5. There you could be a part of the crowd; sitting and listening to Jesus as He give the sermon on the mount. - Join John as he encounters the book of Revelation. - Daniel in the loins den. I'm talking touring the entire to Bible verse by verse. - Learning tool that I believe that would appeal to both the young and aging
Thank you for the nice welcome! I will post a thing or two about my game but mostly just read about what everyone else is doing and what goes on in the Christian game development world. Glad to be on board and around people of similar interests!
Thanks Tim. We're currently finalising a game 'bible' to send out to developers. In the meantime I'll look to write a little piece about where we are at with our game and boost it on the site. Would be great to get people's feedback. Btw. is there going to be a conference this year?
