Old Content Writer

Not old as in wisened or aged, but I wrote some stuff for Ilathid a few years back (maybe more than a few, now...) D'no if any of it's survived the various rebirths Ilathid's had since then (I know I personally haven't held on to it), but there it is.

 

Doesn't look like you guys are recruiting writers, but I've also been teaching myself Python and I'd say I'm pretty comfortable with it at a basic level and I'm eager to learn more and apply what I've learned to the project if you guys will have me back. Cheers!

 

P.S. I guess if I'm looking to get recruited for coding it would be a good idea to link to some example code. So here's my Github page: https://github.com/indigochill/

"Letters" is a text-based mad-libbish storytelling engine of sorts I'm writing solo in Python when the mood strikes and is only in the very, very early stages yet, and "Cataclysm" is a horror survival roguelike I contributed an environmental hazard feature to (collapsing roofs dealing damage and leaving behind rubble to slow movement). That's in C++

Heya Daniel, I remember you from the old forum.  :)  Got any screenshots from Cataclysm, or is it not at that stage yet?  (The environmental hazard thing is new on me.  Cool.)

Can Matthew, Marianne or Eric find something to get you started on?

Here is the link for

Here is the link for Cataclysm: http://en.cataclysmdda.com/ There's a screenshot tab at the top of the main page, and various playable builds can be downloaded from the bar on the right.

It's a branch of a game that was originally being developed by one guy, but he had other priorities come up, stopped developing it, and since it was already open source, the community just picked it up. It is currently playable and generally enjoyable (if you like monster survival and/or roguelike games), but there are still bugs and the occasional crash.

I hope they can. :P

Haha, wow--it's like Rogue on

Haha, wow--it's like Rogue on steroids.  :D  Look at all those little Zs.  Oh the memories...
