I create open source video games and children's books!
Hello you lovely people!
I'm Oliver. The founder of Hirnbix. I'm an older guy who has worked for Nintendo in the past and played almost every game on this planet.
I started on a monitor which only displayed 8 variations of green. My games were stored on cassette tape. There you have it. Hardcore.
My motto is always this: "Alone you go fast, but with a team you go far!"
With 40 it's time to do stuff before it's too late. So, in this case, the stuff is this: MAKING A GREAT GAME with even greater people!
I'd be happy if you support me and my little creative lab "Hirnbix". It's going to be fun.
So what are you talking about old man, why do you want my money?
First: Thanks for reading this far. I appreciate it.
I have a real job in a Kindergarten, so I'm not dependent on your money. This is all a business on the side to have some fun, collaborate and send money to kids who are in need.
My game and my books are centred around the character "Captain Holetooth" (CAHO)
CAHO is a character I invented for my son. For about 4 years now I tell him a new story every evening! That's about 1.500 stories so far and some of these stories make it into the game and my books.
CAHO lives in a rich world with amazing characters and his main purpose is to defend a kind of "magic candy" (still looking for a good name) and to collect surplus sweets so that children don't eat too much of them...
The world of CAHO has a deep backstory (almost like Lord of the rings - no kidding!) and the origin of the setting is my work on children's books.
So what's your idea behind the game and how does it stand out?
My idea is to provide a 2D game that tells a story of time and makes people want to explore the amazing world of Captain Holetooth.* * Deep backstory, rich world * Explorative nature with no major punishments is appealing to many audiences (I aim for a younger audience) * Characters and their backstories are revealed during gameplay * Episodic content or chapters are planned (at least 5 short chapters/stories are already written) * Mix of gameplay elements (already in game: side scrolling shooter, jump and run, relaxing casual marble game)
Bla blah... Let me see the game!
I put a lot of work into the game already and thanks to the Godot-Engine I made great progress in a few months! Just give it a go and see what has been done so far.
Check out the Source Code
I really like Github. You should too :D
Download the Google Play Android Beta Version
I have a google play developer account and use it.
When does this end? I want to contact you now.
Well done. 1000 XP! You've read the whole thing. If you feel the need now to become a part of this I'm really happy. Keep asking away and get in touch with me here or on the other channels. I'm looking forward to your feedback and can't wait to work with you.
Kind regards Oliver
