Hi there I'm Sean and I'm the lead designer of Tortuga Island. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have.
For those asking for to look at media we currently are unable to show any content publicly as we are still in the process of organising certain contracts. It is not ideal, but it should not be for long.
However we will be launching a website soon including a dev blog where our developers will be posting status updates and showing samples of art, music and other information. We are in this process now and I will keep you updated
For a jump-an run fame, you wont need a team, its easy for one person to make something like mario.
What the hell are you smoking ?
Ever thought about the fact people want to create something with quality ?
It's safe to say you need to be 18 here guys.
You are quite right on both points. We are aiming for high production values (art, music, overall design) with this game as a point of difference from other platformers out there so there's quite a bit of work. We also require people to be over 18 so that people are able to sign contracts for themselves. This should have been made clear in the initial post.
Just FYI: the "Clock Tower" games were a well known Japanese horror game series and "Clocktower Games" is a New Zealand indy game developer (now called Aero). Your chosen name won't Google well and potentially might have legal issues.
This is true and Clocktower games is actually a transitional name until legal contracts have been finalised.
I'm wary of OP here since Clocktower Games doesn't give me anything on google and they mentioned using Slick.......a dead library.....
Slick2d is what suits our needs best so we decided to use it. It's not a dead library. It's simply being maintained by different people.
More information can be found herehttp://slick.ninjacave.com/
They dont reply to emails either :/
I believe you have received a reply now. I think it may have been overlooked initially
Hopefully this answers all outstanding questions and apologies to those who do not meet the age requirement but unfortunately it is not viable for us to be recruiting those who cannot sign for themselves.
