My name is thephantom, and I decided to join your site because I love making games, and I love that your community focuses on more than just RPG Maker.
I have to admit signing up to your site got me tricked. I couldn't manage to get past the bot test. haha. I didn't read the part where it said to only add the first and last. Tricky!
Well a little bit about myself...
I have a passion in making games. I started with Game Maker, made a crappy RPG with the default pac-man example. Then I found RPG maker 2000, loved it. Made several games of only a few maps each, never finished one. Moved to 2003, made a game with about 1 dungeon's worth of content. Then XP came out, and I couldn't keep up. I got distracted with other things, and never got around to using XP. And finally, I started working on making a game with Flash and ActionScript.
My current game I am making is an online RPG and I am using ActionScript. At first glance it looks like an RPG maker game, but really isn't. It runs completely in the web browser just using flash. It is still in early development, but is coming along nicely. Since I am not using any existing engine I have to create all the features myself. It takes time, and has slowed me down a bit. I would love for people to test it out and give suggestions to help me make it better. I think I will make another thread about it and keep you all updated on its progress.
Beyond making games, I am a tv junkie and play some games. I watch hulu and netflix almost constantly. I enjoy Stargate, Star Trek, Grey's Anatomy, House, Bones, The Office, Fringe, and Chopped, just to name a few. I mainly play World of Warcraft, I am alliance, I got a 85 tank, healer, and dps, so if you ever want to group up to do some heroics let me know! I also play some minecraft and skyrim when I get a chance.
Thanks for having me! Hope to get to know you all in time!
