Dirty Rotten Bounders

About

Hi, my name is Paul Savage. I created the Dirty Rotten Bounders game. I initially wrote it in C# for the Unity Technologies game engine. I was seduced by Apple's technology and decided to make it for the iPad and iPhone, using the 'cocos2d for iPhone' framework and Objective-C. After retiring the game from the App Store, I converted it to JavaScript so that it would run in a browser. I'm not an artist, or a musician, so I had to buy in a lot of the graphics and sounds, but I did pick up some experience with Adobe® Photoshop® and Autodesk® 3dsMax®/Maya®/Mudbox®.

This game was made using the Phaser framework, but if you're interested in making games or mobile apps yourself, I would recommend looking at:

Phaser - a desktop and mobile HTML5 game framework

cocos2d for iPhone a free framework for creating 2D games for Apple technology (thousands of games using this framework have been approved on the App Store). Uses Objective-C on a Mac computer.

Corona® SDK a free framework (subscription required for the Pro and Enterprise versions) for creating cross-platform mobile apps writing in Lua script. Windows and Mac versions, but need a Mac to develop for iOS.

Unity Game Engine free version available. More comprehensive multi-platform, artist-friendly engine, but very powerful for developers too, using JavaScript, C#, or Boo (version of Python).

For graphics I would recommend looking at:

Turbosquid

DAZ 3D

Renderosity

Content Paradise

3D Export

TexturePacker

For music loops and stingers try:

Melody Loops

Music Loops

For sound effects:

Indiesfx (most definitely)

Sound Dogs
