Sup, the name is Danny and I'm 18 years old, live in the southern part of the Netherlands in a province called Limburg. I've played a whole lot of games, from Roller Coaster Tycoon all the way to Black Ops II. Although Call of Duty has been dead since WaW. I'm a "hardcore" gamer, but my rig isn't that hardcore. GTX460, Intel E8500 OC'd to 4.0Ghz and 6GB's of DDR2 RAM. Yes. DDR2.
There are so many people who think they need to have a GTX680 or GTX690 and 16GB's of RAM to play games at ultra, tell you what, you've wasted your money. I'm maxing out pretty much everything right now with the gear I have. 1680x1050 full HD 1080p.

The games I'm still playing as of 2012 are Skyrim, WoW (played for 2 years, still play it sometimes), LotRO, LotR: War in the North, The Witcher 2, Black Ops II and some other minor stuff. I've also played every Call of Duty including BOII, but the last decent Call of Duty was CoD4, after CoD4 it started to go downhill IMO. I'm also a LotR fan, love Tolkien's works and Peter Jackson is a brilliant man.
Feel free to add me on Steam if you want: Tomahawk12345

Looking forward to be a part of this website. Cheers.

Hello! My name is Kae and I am a huge fan of visual novels and otome games :wub:

I'm a 19 year old college student studying video and new media, I love animals, I can cook anything under the sun, and have a deep love of tea. :D

So far, I've played tons of otome games and visual novels, and even done a few LPs! I recently started wanting to make my own, so if anyone has any tips or suggestions for me I would really appreciate it!

Hello, Salvatore, Kae, and Danny ^_^

I'm NEW here! My name is Quoux (or at least I want you to refer to me as that) and I am a concept artist and a writer! I'm American but I love Britian and I love Saudi Arabia (I love someone from there ^_^) and I am super excited to help in the game creating industry!

I've long considered making a game for myself, but I have ZERO skill with coding and I rely on my art. I have wanted, for the longest time now, to work on an ipod/ iphone game either as a concept artist or general illustrator, and I REALLY want to make one of those games where there is no animation and you just click pictures and buttons and stuff; or a TCG game for the iphone/ ipod. Also I would love for the game to have in-app purchases.

BUT I would love to work on ANYTHING IN GENERAL because I just really want to start helping and joining teams. If you want you can check out my "resume" post on the Resume forum here.

I'm not sure who really reads these but I thought I may as well do one anyway. I'm Jim, aspiring 22 year old Web guy who has a lot of free time right now. My attention span for games seems to be a lot shorter these days, possibly from over-gaming. To combat this I've migrated to here where I figure I'm more likely to find different/interesting games. The fact many of them are shorter will be an added bonus for my attention span. I'm pleased to say it's been going pretty well so far.

Aside from that, I'm kicking out a few blogs about some of the games I find here. It's mostly just to stop any writing skill I may still posses from completely diminishing; I'm not expecting any actual readership. I've also been toying with learning Unity for a while, even getting as far as doing a few basic tutorials. Unfortunately I'm quite impatient and I don't like having to walk before I can run so that's slid onto the backburner for now. Hopefully the awesome developers around here might inadvertently slap some inspiration into me and I might pick it back up.

Having finished Uni, my life's pretty dull outside of the Internet right now, so there's not much to say there. Oh, also hi, I forgot to mention that part.

I'm fx0ne. I'm an ardent game designer. I love strategy, sports and racing game. My favorite games are "tower defense" type games as well as soccer games (FIFA and PES). In my spare time I develop games for the iPhone and iPad. I recently put out an iOS game called astroPACK in the app store

My second iOS game called Desert Storm is still being reviewed and hopefully will be out by the weekend. I'm glad to be a part of this gaming community.

Hiya, thought I'd introduce myself before starting a topic.

I'm from the Bay Area in California. Play all kinds of games and enjoy listening to podcasts.

Definitely been spending a lot of time trying to promote a Kickstarter project which you'll all hear about soon.

Wish I woulda came here before I started, but I guess its not to late. My name is Fidel, well gamer name. My real name is Bert, I love to play games, and do reviews n' such. I love to get into debates, but not argue. I love to make people laugh, as cheesy at the line could be, I make videos for a small youtube channel. I don't like to boast about, or try to squeeze out subs. I like to bring people together with it, thats my goal, I want to bring players to the indie games, art designers to de developers ect ect. I have a few posts about it already if your interested. So I'de love to play your games, send em my way lol!

Howdy, folks!
My name is Adam and I've been working in games for a few years now in various capacities.
I've worked for a small startup on two different games, released a game on Android and iOS with a friend, worked with a group of students on a master's degree thesis project, ported a student game to XBLA, and started a lot of projects that have never seen the light of day. During the day, I work as a QA programmer at a game studio in the Seattle area that you've probably heard of on a game that you haven't. At night, I work on more projects with a friend, and have another mobile game nearing release that we'll be announcing soon.
When I'm not making games, I also enjoy playing them. I have a soft spot for 2D platformers, but enjoy pretty much every genre.

Hello everyone

Name is Alex, working on an old open source browser game that has been gone for quite some time. I think it is time to bring it back and modify it will all the nifty things that are possible in this days technology.

I started this project just to hone some basic Linux skills (the game is a server engine itself, making it work took some time) but doing that made all these wonderful memories of the game flow back to me. I think it has such a great potential and with the right people behind it, it can attract a lot of players.

MarchingOrd3rZ here!

Though Fighting games (Tekken and Street Fighter) are my main genre, Half-Life is my First-Person Shooter of choice. I love all things Half-Life, especially when it comes to downloading and trying mods. I am a PC and PS3 gamer mostly, for I am a graphics snob. Games I'm playing right now are Half-Life (Sven Co-Op, Zombie Panic! , and The Wastes mods), Tekken (5 and 6), Street Fighter (III: Third Strike and IV) , Guilty Gear (XX #Reload), RedEclipse, Xonotic, and Need for Speed: Underground 2. I am also in the process of learning C++ and JavaScript.

Hey all.

I'm new here. Just looking for playable mods for Crysis2 but have not found even one. Kinda bummed about that. If you read any of my comments on some of these mods I may seem a bit upset. And well.. that's cuz I am. Disappointed really.

Can anyone please guide me to good mods that utilize the Cryengine 3 platform? After playing Crysis2 I was amazed at how real it felt and was excited to go mod hunting. But the hunt has been short for lack of any real mods out there. I am surprised by this. I also play and mod Skyrim (which has a HUGE support mod group on Nexus). It's really overwhelming the amount of content that is available.

Maybe is it because the Creation Engine is much easier to use than Cryengine? I don't know, you tell me?

Sincerely (and thanks for having me)

Hi my name is Ciprian, @Zapakitul on twitter. I used to work for Gameloft as a Game/Level designer and now I'm doing games from my own apartment.
I joined IndieDB a few years back so I could comment and track (aka stalk) Bytegroves development on Soul Hunter (a platforming game made in DBPRo), and now I'm using this platform to promote my game and, hopefully, create a community around it.

Thank you for having me here and I look forward to healthy, happy and fun collaboration with each and everyone of you.

Hello everyone, I'm a Let's Player from Sweden who's currently playing lots of Amnesia mods (which of most I find here, thanks everyone who's made one. :))
Anyways so I thought, I'd be able to promote maps and maybe my own youtube channel on here.
So if you have a map that you want to have seen you can send me a mail, I play 2-3 maps a day (unless they're like really long then I'll only play one)

And then I have a question regarding of in what forum section I could start a thread for helping to promote maps and my own youtube channel, thanks in advance. :)
