Our world has been reshaped by this pandemic. Instead of talking about all of the terrible things, I thought for today we'd focus on one of the silver linings of this horrible event. Video games. Well, the video game industry. We've all been turning to old favorites and new adventures to escape and comfort us and it SHOWS. Look at Among Us and Fall Guys. Small games that may never have had the hype they now do . In fact, this is probably the BEST time to launch your own game and I will tell you why!

    i'm a brazillian who likes to create my own things, like stories or concepts. I've been working on some projects, like the "Virus Havoc" game i said before in this comments, and i'm also making a film for an animated series that i have, called "Historas do Pente", or translating, "Paint Stories". I'm only making the script for now. My dream is to have recognition on the projects i make, because i'm taking too much effort for something that very few people know or watched it. It's sad. I also want to know programming, be better at drawing and maybe know how to make my own music for my projects. I will also try to translate my projects into english, of course.

  • pvini07BR

    i'm making a game called "Virus Havoc", a web 2D shooting game where you shoot in internet viruses and defeat bosses, and also gain different laser guns, with different damages and kinds. I don't need help in development for now, i just want to advertise my game better. I posted some screenshots and sneak peeks of my game on my twitter: @pvini07BR when I need help development I will let you know.


    you should Rest In Peace ALL old cod games cuz they were the best before new ones😢

    promote myself? alright let's do this. I am a writer and an artist TWO IN ONE BABY. i've got LITTERALLY 8 stories in my head two of which are much more fleshed out then others but they've still got, in my opinion, great plots. i've told these stories to my friends and well i truly don't mean to brag i will only state the exact words i've been told "you are a storytelling genius". while i'm sure my writing has flaws here and there and i'm still developing my art skills i'm sure that one day i will release one of those stories and make a name for myself in the entertainment industry and then on release even more stories. i am very passionate about all of this and have been since i was 8. if anyone out there would like to make a littles girls dream come true lmk. i have a linktree on my channel if you would like to see some of my work.

    “Promote yourself” I’m a high school freshmen who’s passion is Dance and Theater! I dance on my schools drill team and take classes at a studio after school and have done multiple musical productions and have been very involved in singing and acting since I was young! I hope to go somewhere like New York after high school and hope to make it into a good theater company and make connections, maybe even do traveling shows or something like that and/or do background dance/choreography work in movies and television and hope to maybe be on Broadway in some form, weather that’s being a swing actress, understudy, ensemble, anything, I just wanna be a part of it. I don’t plan to go to collage I don’t think, unless I go to a trade school and do a commercial dance program or be a theater major.. school has never been my thing and though I don’t exactly have a laid out plan for what I want to do after high school, I know that I have wanted to be a performer and go into the arts since I was young and I can’t wait to carry out that dream :)

    While you are correct for the most part about the PS5 being way more popular and successful, the objective of microsoft as you said is a little inaccurate. The focus some time ago from Microsoft actually shifted away from trying to win the console war to their xbox game pass/live service. You can get hundreds of games for a small monthly description and so far a lot of people have actually taken a liking to this massive shift. I could be wrong but it is my observation.

    "Promote yourself" Hmmm, ok. I can do programming, 2d animation, and I'm also a bit of a writer. I've been into coding for about as long as I can remember, and I've been overflowing with games ideas for even longer. My recent interests for creating games have been graphic novels, and RPG games. I am on Discord and Twitter, so if you're looking for a programmer or 2d artist, I'm always looking forward to new oppurtunities.

If you're curious atm I'm doing all the art - from concept to 3d modeling to animation - and my brother is doing all the coding

    The problem with Docter Fauci and media in general is when they don't know something they pretend like they do and often say things that later come out to be incorrect which causes the public to lose trust. That being said they have a crucially important job, I just wish they would stop preventing like they know things as facts when they don't.

    Promote yourself I'm not a programmer, but I am good at making board games if anyone has a good publisher. I enjoy games where you add more rules as you go on, like in Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle. I'm currently working on a game where you try and defend a princess for a few rounds, and then spend the last couple trying to get her back once the demons take her. Edit: Put down what I am working on now.
