GTA - like game (community project)


#1

I am not so sure I should be doing this but I would just give it a try.
I stumbled upon an old topic from 2014 some hours ago (I enjoy reading old forum discussions :grin:)(GD open game project?) it’s about an open game project idea by some gdevelop forum LEGENDS (@ddabrahim, @mats, @Lizard-13, @victor etc.)
In the topic @ddabrahim who brought up the idea of a GTA game mentioned a lot of pros and cons about this idea which I spent the last hour reading. After going through the cons I realised why they weren’t able to achieve this back then in 2014 and that also made me realise why we can achieve this now.
-Then
Few gdevelop users
-Now
More gdevelop users
-Then
They had Gdevelop 4
-Now
We have gdevelop 5
-Then
They had jobs which made the development slow
-Now
We have to stay at home which would be the best time for this.
-Then
They talked, planned and dreamt a lot but coded less.
They are still many more but I would stop the comparison here.

We would use most of their ideas which we’re good to prevent a repeatation of history.

Back then they agreed on GTA so that’s what we would be creating.

6 years ago they tried doing this now I think it’s time we try to achieve this.

If you have any reason why this would not work please let me know.

Absolutely! I’m just starting out on GD but I find it simple, powerful, and absolutely amazing!

I think at that time one of the main obstacles was to publicly discuss the working model.

My opinion is there should be a project manager to determine a work model, the tasks to be done and to coordinate deadlines for each task.

If someone commits to that position, the next step you should take is to determine a to-do list and those in charge of each task.

Good luck.


#4

That’s right.
Once we have a certain amount of persons I would create a repository on github to manage the development of the project. But first we need to know those who are Interested in this.


#5

Please join here.
This is to know the total number of users who are interested.
NOTE - they would be some rules later on to make sure this project is achieved.

  • I would love to join the team
  • I don’t want to join the team

I wouldn’t be interested to be “In the team” but if the project is on GitHub I sure wouldn’t mind doing some PRs here and there and help when I can and am up to :).


#7

Well it’s gonna be on github I would create a repository on it as soon as more users join.


#8

It’s just my opinion, but I think you should just start something (make a basic beginning of game and post it in GitHub with a project description), advertise it (here on the forum, on the discord, maybe on your YT channel) and see if people are interested (begin to join/participate). Then it is just my humble opinion, I am not saying my way is better and you can do however you want, just proposing.


#9

Your right I would create something basic. Also could you help me in running the repository on github once it’s created. Am not so good at using github.:cry:
