Game development on Maidsafe

#1

Hi Everyone,

I’m currently looking into creating a simple game on top of the maidsafe network and was looking to see if anyone wanted to work with me on it.

A bit about my background:
I have been a video game developer for over a decade on several Xbox, Xbox 360 and PS3 titles and also worked at Zynga on games like farmville. I sold my last company which made the game Rawbots (check it on youtube).

I’m looking to bring my knowledge and experience from social gaming to make simple games on top of the maidsafe platform. These games will need to be able to handle 10+ million players. I have advertising contacts as well as access to venture/vulture capital.

I’m looking for partners to help. My motivation these days is much more for activism than financial, but I know finance is what makes people help, so I’m good at that as well :slight_smile: So if you are a talented Software engineer that knows how to build decentralized apps on top of Maidsafe, and want to come on an amazing journey, please feel free to contact me at nharan81@gmail.com

Kind regards,
Neil

Yep, thanks. I would personally look to build a simple game on top of the maidsafe platform than a complex one. A simple game can monetize quite well. Are you a software engineer?

Btw, I’m also working on a legal platform, though it isn’t blockchained. Check it out here:

Let me know if I can be of any help.

Hi there, I just saw your post as a safe network user that would sound cool,
The good thing about the safe network is you can have trad-able assets for exchange safe coin, similar to the safex exchange.
I know the spells of genesis on country party raised alot money to fund there game, and are still selling cards as assets.

anyway my thoughts, I wish yo luck

Thanks Justin,

I’m hoping that this forum also has software engineers that could help. I look forward to learning more about Maidsafe through my interactions with people on this forum and the team. My time is unfortunately limited, but I will try my best to learn about Maidsafe.

Thought it was cool to get your perspective from 2011 interests in Bitcoin and gaming

Definitely not my best interview but was interesting hearing myself after 4 years. I seem to be doing pod casts with currencies I think are going to go up :slight_smile: I look forward to the maidsafe podcast :slight_smile:

nharan, being apart of the farm-vile and Canada, by any chance you was not one of the those’s guy’s made famous on the south park episode.

By any chance you are not trying to balance out your karma…

Hey nharan,

I’ve been looking for an app to work or to contribute in general to SAFE. I’ve done some game dev but not commercially, would be cool to work on something in Rust though. I have 6 years industry experience in programming Haskell / Erlang and 2 in other languages and have written a bunch of games dev libraries. The latest game thing I did was to bind ThreeJS in Haskell and compile it to JS using GHCJS. What kind of game are you looking to make?

Wonder if these would work on Alpha 2.

Lots of open source games and tech.

All web browser based.

This one’s very cool:
