Code Your Game in 7 Days or Less - Unity/RenPy/Web Developer [OPEN]

#1 Post by Kinjo » Thu Jan 22, 2015 2:14 am

STATUS: OPEN

About Me
Hello! My name is Kinjo. In 2016 I graduated with a B.S. Computer Science degree and I'm the lead programmer of Goldbar Games. We have successfully released several games in the past and intend on releasing even more. If this thread is open then that means I need some additional funding and am willing to do some coding work for other developers in need of help.

Regardless of whether your project is free or commercial, my work will be done on a commission basis.
Also, the content of your project (sex, gore, etc.) does not matter to me. Work is work!


Languages:
I have over 4 years experience with C++, C#, Python, Java, Javascript (Node.js), HTML, CSS, SQL... you name it. I have the most experience with Unity C#, but I've also done a lot of work using Python and RenPy. Furthermore, I have previous experience in Game Maker and RPG Maker if those are your tools instead. I also have experience making responsive and mobile-friendly websites if you need one of those.

Examples of My Work
*Personal website with portfolio
GitHub profile
Goldbar Games website
Snowball Saves Summer
Detective Butler: Maiden Voyage Murder
Snowball Saves Christmas

Other Skills:
*Experience integrating the Steam API into games
*Experience integrating Unity Ads and Unity Analytics into games
*Experience integrating microtransactions in mobile games (Unity only)

What I Can Do:
Please note that I will only be taking requests that can be completed within 7 days. Most simple requests can be finished in less than one day, so only very complicated (code me a whole game engine!) or time-consuming tasks (such as "narrative scripting") will not be accepted. If you are unsure whether or not your request will take longer than 7 days, send me a message anyway. It might be simpler than you think!

BUG FIX:
If there is something wrong with your code, I will diagnose the problem. Depending on the issue, the cost to fix it will vary. If it's a simple bug (the game spits out an error or crashes) it'll be $30 per bug. If your game does not crash but you simply don't understand why the game isn't doing what you want it to do, I can provide a new algorithm for $20 (tell you what to do to get it working) and/or code it myself at $30 per hour.

Also please note that I am not responsible for fixing any new bugs that pop up as a result of fixing the original bug, unless that bug is commissioned to be fixed as well. Generally though I don't think this will happen.

ADD FEATURES:

If there is a specific feature you want implemented, such as a custom menu, gameplay system, or a minigame, I can do it. You will need to be extremely specific in what you want, and I may ask for multiple clarifications before agreeing to start work. If there is a feature you want that is not listed here, just ask.

Please note that all prices are subject to change depending on the complexity of your specific request. The following are some potential examples:

RenPy Basic GUI - $50 per basic menu screen (save, load, title, backlog)
RenPy Advanced GUI - $100 per advanced menu screen (CG gallery, music player, chapter select)
RenPy Custom GUI - $200 per custom menu screen (whatever you want, i.e. character profiles, glossaries, etc.)
RenPy Gameplay System - $100 to $200+ per system, depends on complexity (~$30 per hour)
*Examples: inventory, crafting, door navigation, attributes, world map, drag and drop, battle, etc...

Unity GUI - Twice the cost of the corresponding RenPy screen
Unity Text Display - $100 (for those who want to set up a VN framework in Unity but don't know how)
Unity Gameplay System - $200+ per system, depends on complexity (~$30 per hour)
Unity Ads Integration - $50 to set up, plus $15 for each instance of ads
Unity Analytics Integration - $50 to set up, plus $15 for each thing to be tracked
Steam Achievement Integration* - $20 per achievement, or $150 for every ten
*you must pay your own fee to be on Steam before I will do this

WEB DEVELOPMENT:
I can add new pages or functionality to your site, change how it looks with CSS, or even just get you up and running with a brand new one. Your choice of WordPress, GitHub Pages, or Shopify. Prices will depend on the work involved, usually priced based on number of web pages. Send me a message about it.

Payment
We will use PayPal. If I can give you a solid number, then you must pay me the first half to get started. Once I send you the final product, if there are no immediate issues you will send me the second half of payment. In the case where I am working per hour, you will pay me the amount and I will work for as many hours as you have paid me. Think of it like an arcade machine, you keep putting in quarters and I keep coding. If you don't like my progress then you can quit at any time. No refunds, with one exception (see below).

Note: If PayPal is not available in your country, we can discuss other methods of payment.

FAQ:
Q: What if you complete the work, but it's not what I had in mind?
We will re-examine the initial agreement to see if I've fulfilled all the conditions. If so, then any further help will require an additional, separate commission. Remember, it is your job to give me an accurate description of what I need to do.
Q: What if you code a system for me which seems fine at first, but breaks later on?
Sometimes, mistakes happen. After I receive the final payment, you have 72 hours to let me know of any issues, and they will be fixed for free. Otherwise, you will need to commission me again.
Q: Is there anything you won't do?
Requests that (in my estimation) take longer than 7 days. I also cannot do Live2D. Generally speaking, I may decline any request if I do not find it interesting or I believe I do not have the time or skill to get the job done.
Q: What happens if 7 days pass without completing the work?
In the unlikely event this should happen, you can ask for a refund and I will honor it. Note this does not apply to any work being paid for on an hourly basis.

Conclusion
Feel free to either PM me, send an e-mail to kinjo@goldbargames.com, or reply in this thread if you are interested.
And if you have any questions, please ask!

Thank you for reading!

Re-opening this thread for commissions. As suggested, I've also listed some base prices. Enjoy!
