Hey, I’m Rasmus Björk and I recently joined this forum.
I started working with both lua and defold for the first time in April 2015 and is currently making my first mobile game.
Which is a casual puzzle game.
I will probably have more questions than answers but hopefully it will be helpful if people run into similar problems.

Who the heck are you?
I’m Victor Fabiano and I’m 20yo mobile game developer.

Programmer, Artist, Designer?
Kind of generalist. I work in my games alone, so I have to do everything.

When didja join the forum?
October 2nd…

Why Defold?
It’s objective, simple to use and has a highly responsive community… did I mention it’s multi-platform and the scripting language is Lua? :smile:

It’s also worth mentioning that the way this forum works is different from everything I’ve ever seem. I really love its design and tools, it makes your post look professional!


Well that’s it, e-mail me at: eccodelta@outlook.com

Best,

Hi, i’m Gonzo, i’m a fellow glua programmer (It’s lua, but with some C syntax)
I’ve been doing lua for more than 5 years, and now i’m really excited about mobile developing, i’ve tried too many engines, unity has been the best, but the problem it’s that i don’t like too much c#, and the developing it’s a bit…Anoying, i want to test defold and i hope to get a really good impression about defold!

Hey I’m Anon. I am a programmer for 4 years and love coding. I am very excited to get started using defold, I only recently found this and have been checking my emails every hour hoping to get a key, this engine looks fantastic, and I can’t wait to get my hands on it.

Hi guys,

I’ve developed games professionally for over a decade, and tinkered with games since the C64 days!

A couple of years ago I started a one-man game studio called Totebo Ltd where I make touch screen games for iOS and Android. I use Gideros; a Lua SDK similar to Defold in many ways, which is why I’m very keen to try out Defold and check out the workflow, performance and general “feel” of the SDK.

Waiting eagerly for a key so I can download and take it for a spin.

Take it easy,

Niclas Åberg

Hey!

I’m Ragnar, one of the two who made Defold from the beginning. I will try to answer things in the forum, but I’m currently spending all my time making the new editor that is supposed to replace the current one. So, sorry if I’m being absent.
