Title: Introductions
Post by: boaromayo on June 26, 2018, 10:45:59 pm
Haven't introduced myself formally yet, so hi there, Solarus community!

How I heard about Solarus was from a dissertation paper (Link: http://beckylavender.co.uk/portfolio/the-zelda-dungeon-generator/ (http://beckylavender.co.uk/portfolio/the-zelda-dungeon-generator/)) I read last year about generating random Zelda dungeons. After finding out that the scripting language for this engine uses Lua, and out of curiosity, I downloaded Solarus.

I'm adept with OOP languages such as Java, C++, and Ruby, and I'm also familiar with other game engines like RPG Maker and Unity.

Currently, I'm planning to use the Solarus engine to make a quest called The Epic of Den. Originally, this game was meant to be coded completely in Java, but I lost interest in the project.

Hope we can get along and make great open-source games!  :)

Hi ! Nice to see you on Solarus forum !

Do you still work at Playtonic Games ? (I'm curious if the people who worked on Banjo & Kazooie have heard about Solarus. I know Chris is a big fan ! and me too)
