    I've been working in Unity since before I graduated and enjoy working and designing systems and games within Unity and C#. I've been known to go beyond the requirements and to be very thorough when working. If you've got an idea or just rounding out a few components, I can help you! -I have been working with Unity & C# since 2017. I'm always keeping myself up-to-date with the latest version and techniques in the engine and C#. - I have professional experience developing products from just a few sentences. I also don't get attached to my work. If it doesn't work or is wrong, I'll go back and fix it the way you like it. - You can either regularly communicate with me or you may leave me to my work, I don't mind either way as I can accommodate your schedule. While I will attempt to fix any issues I encounter, I will always keep you informed of the issue and possible resolutions. - P.S. I'm also experienced in other programming languages, web development, and a few other game engines. your project may not be a game, but maybe I can still help.

    Unity Game Designer and Developer and Master of Computer Science Engineering with +2 years of experience in Game and Software Design and Development on many platforms. I help companies and individuals develop their dream games and I am currently responsible for the entire process of many game projects, from prototyping to release. Here are a few examples of my results: ⦁ Developed a library of more than 10 independent and modular systems and tools to use in game development projects, which translates to a reduction in development time and project duration by weeks. ⦁ Participated in Many GameJams, and always managed to adapt the game scope and finish the product within the time frame, being 48h or even 3h in the case of the TriJam! ⦁ Represented my country in the international exchange program (GSACS), and collaborated with professors in the US, Middle East, and North Africa, thanks to my C2 skill in English. Which led to our team securing the first spot. ⦁ While my English is fluent, I also speak French and am learning Japanese. In addition to mastering Arabic and Amazigh languages. Additionally, I am a big fan of Astronomy since High school, everything from the physical phenomena in Astrophysics, to the mythology related to the constellations throughout civilizations. Like novel authors create entire worlds with a stock of their pen, transforming inanimate words into their reality; I too feel a deep connection with video games, I care for them, for they are windows into other realities. And nothing excites me more than working on a game project with creative people, and delivering Fun, enjoyable, and immersive experiences and scenarios. A day without connecting with others and communicating is a day incomplete. so feel free to contact me at MohammadLaadidaoui@Gmail.com, or here on Upwork.

    Hey! I am Harvey Lanot, a freelance artist and designer with over 11 years of professional experience in graphic design and illustration. My expertise includes book illustration, website, logo, mascot, apps, and game character designs. I also have extensive skills in building brand and corporate identity through graphic design principles. I have a Fine Arts degree but I consider myself as more of a self-taught. I am well-versed in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. Right now, I'm exploring 2D animation and digital visual effects using Spine2D and After Effects, respectively. My regular routine is working on cartoon illustrations and designing graphic elements for clients and agencies across the world. All the illustrations and designs I produce undergo multiple drafts, colors, and typography studies, all of which are personalized and created artfully to make sure they meet the project briefs and my clients' likings. If we need to have a discovery call to discuss your projects, just let me know. I'll make myself available for you!

    Aspiring Game Developer & Designer, experienced in Godot and a little in Unity. 4+ years of experience in multiple genres. Skills include : -Game/Level design -Game mechanics analysis -Developing small/medium scale projects (Godot) -Helping development in small/medium scale projects (Unity) -Sound design (Music/SFX) -Visual design (vibe/aesthetics/theme) Software I'm using on a daily basis : -Godot -Reaper -Github -Jira Software I'm familiar with : -Unreal -Unity Other skills (not so relevant) : -Drums -Saxophone -Very, very very long designed campaigns for DnD 5e -Music nerd More into detail? Alright, I try to design games with very clear pictures in my head. I imagine myself booting up the game as a person that knows nothing, and I try to use the "info" gathered while playing to answer questions about the game's design. Is this mechanic properly explained? If not, is it on purpose? If it's on purpose, is it to create mystery or to bundle that mechanic up with something else down the road? Is this balanced? Does it matter if it's balanced? Do we want the players to have more freedom to explore mechanics/stat combinations and break the game, or do we want a more closed path? If we want freedom, do we feel ok with players disregarding entire mechanics, or do we want them to experience them? A lot of questions need to be answered before making up a GDD, which include the emotions we want to invoke on a player, the purpose of the game, and how we're going to achieve that. Want to achieve mystery? A dark atmosphere isn't enough. A non-existent tutorial neither. How are we going to make the player question stuff around them? Are mechanics going to be changing? Should X thing that worked in Y way change mid-game to confuse the player? If yes, how will we make the player understand that this isn't a "bug" or a misstep in our own part, but a design? Are we going to connect Y way to Y+1 way? How? There are lots and lots of interesting things you can do in a game, and having broad pictures and scenarios on your head about a game's direction is a good place to start, but a lot of stuff needs to be said & written before we start working on it. I try to avoid development hell, and the number one cause (so far) is a not clear enough path or purpose for the game. Some mechanics/ideas/anything will come down the road during development, some will be discarded because they weren't fun or just didn't stick, and of course a lot of things will change. But the pillars of the game need to be intact, otherwise the game is risking re-purposing it's entire self because we didn't built strong enough foundations.

    I'm a professional games developer with unreal engine. Mainly, I use blueprint for developing since it's the easiest and most time efficient way to create games, but also using c++ for stuff that should be performance optimized in games. Over the past two quarters I have been teaching and educating some developers in my city how to professionally develop games with unreal engine environment. I have gained the trust of my teammates and CEO to be in charge of developing Ridiculous Plan only by myself in a dead line of 6 months in such large scale I developed Rid-Plan full game from scratch by myself, in such scale that's nearly equal to Fortnite scale which was created by Epic games in a studio that has hundreds of developers and programmers. I designed Rid-Plan Code to be modular and optimized, though I had so little time for the dead line, I could by the help of god first then the experience that I have gained over the past year to finish Rid_Plan development. A full functional multiplayer battle royale game working on a big scale and being hosted by amazone gamelift service. I'm a very cooperative person who manages to work well in a team based environment. Also when it comes to solo tasks I'm a beast in such matter. I'm capable of writing a well optimized, modular and clean code, also well commented one that can be read and easily understood by others. I also have the technical skills and experience that qualifies me to be a director of a game code design process with Unreal Engine. Thus, I have Confidence in myself that i can develop any PC game whether it's multiplayer or single-player game, whatever it's concept is.
