Default Putting your code where your mouth is: Games made by Tyrants.

There are plenty of fellow Tyrants that have developed a game or two! To keep track of all these games I've created a small master list of Tyrant-developed games at Google docs that any of you can edit!

Don't be shy, if you've collaborated in any way in the development of a game, please add it to the list. Tell us what your role was and where we can get it so we can support our local artists!

God bless you, PB.

I think we oughta have a bit at the bottom about games in development, too. Just so that we can keep track of people who're trying to get their stuff onto Steam Early Access or what have you.

Not only do I think it counts -- I think we oughta open this up to people who've developed (or helped to develop) card games, board games, and tabletop RPGs, too. Better to be inclusive than arbitrarily exclusive, I think.

Should this include things like fan games or translations projects? Specifically STTB and the FFV Ancient Cave translation.

Good idea. I've created another sheet in the same document for them. If you want us to vote for your game in Grenlight or whatever, don't forget to add a link to its page!

I don't want to draw an arbitrary line here. If you can play with it and you had a hand in its creation, I'd say go for it. If you want to you can create another sheet specifically for fan projects to keep them separate.

I say a tab for commercial and/or original projects, a tab for fan games, and a tab for translations/mods.

I'm not sure where to draw the line, honestly. Maybe at "original engine" to keep things like I Wanna Be the Guy separate from SMBX and RPG Maker projects.

I Wanna Be the Guy would be in commercial and/or original projects. SMBX games would be in fan games. RPG Maker games would be in commercial and/or original projects unless they use copyrighted assets, in which case they're fan games.

Or just throw everything on one tab, because I'm just realizing this makes things needlessly complicated and it's not like anyone's going to get sued over this.

PROTIP: You don't need to cut and paste and insert rows to keep the alphabetical order. Just put your games in any order at the end of the sheet and then use the tools in the menu to order the games. If you don't know how to do this just let it be and surely somebody else will come by and do it for you. It's the magic of the internet!

I'd like to distinguish between games made by TTers and games contributed to by TTers. It's kind of a fuzzy distinction, but I'm much more interested to know that Balrog made Blue Beacon than that Nich did some of the localization for SMT4. Nothing against Nich or his work, of course -- I think that sort of thing belongs in the spreadsheet in some form, but I'm more interested to learn about games that someone here came up with.

If this is easily accessible and filterable already, then I apologize -- I can't access the doc from here.

I added my two games, although I'm unclear if

A) they really count as "games I developed" by you guys' standards
B) if I really count as a "Tyrant" for the purposes of this list.

I'd keep your stuff, Nich. Localization is important. I'll add them back later for you if nobody adds it back before I get a chance to

Anyway, it is filterable already, but if you guys want to we can move translation into its own tab - this is TT's spreadsheet, after all, so you guys feel free to modify it as much as you want. Me, I'd keep it all together and use filters if I want to know some thing specific.

You actually count as two tyrants, by my math.

IMHO, if you've collaborated in any way to a game, it counts. And I have to disagree with Nich, localization does count in this regard.

If you can play with it, it counts as a game.

And if you have posted in these forums, you're a Tyrant.

Maybe we just need 2 sheets for "made" vs. "worked on"?

I think it's exceptionally uncivil to ghettoize people who've worked on games as part of a project versus having completed a project solo. I'm honestly rather startled by this sentiment.

The key difference to me is that a purchase of, say, Meteor vs. Blowfish puts money into the pocket of a TTer. Like I said, I think stuff like Nich's work belongs on the spreadsheet, but I am interested in personally having the ability to look at just the games owned by TT members.

Key distinction: I want to be able to filter the list; I don't think the list needs to be pre-filtered.

iOS games are not games and therefore cannot be included on the list

If your name appears in the credits, or if it would appear in the credits if it had credits, put it on the list, and then indicate what you were credited for.

I think my personal preference would be to have the list alphabetized by tyrant rather than title. Anyone else agree?

It's a spreadsheet. Alphebatization doesn't matter because sorting is, like, the main feature of spreadsheets.

Mogri, I'm going to be rude to you, and I apologize.

If you want to only have a list of games Tyrants have fully created, make your own goddamned spread sheet.

that was incredibly rude to Nich. Localization FOR SURE counts.

Your distinction doesn't make sense. I Directed AT:EtDBIDK, meaning almost everything in it sprang out of my brain and then people who work under me made it. I "created" that game. You buying it puts exactly $0.00 in my pocket because that's not how games work.

If you want a list of self-published TT games that's a different thing than this.

I was super excited about this all day, and was debating whether or not you guys wanted me to add all the games I tested or not, and what Mogri said seriously soured my mood, like suddenly wanting no part in this.

I am honestly surprised to learn that this is the case.

I mean, I figured it was some fraction of a fraction of a percent...

If you want to find a game that was developed wholly by one person on the forum -- and, hey, I can imagine a situation where you might want to -- then we ought to be putting something like "everything" or "solo project" in the "Role" column. No separate list needed.

Agreed. I was going to say this, but was trying to frame it in a civil tone. You and Tomm did that wonderfully.
