nerd-chan68224di mean, you did do exactly what you were told, so, i mean, like, you technically passed the class
pmso41224dYou should have exported it as browser game.
It would be a webpage and a game.

> Me today, unemployed
OMG This had me on the ground 😆
Nanos1075024d> Me today, unemployed:
Not a wise move.
Today's lesson, find loopholes.
Something you want to do, that is acceptable to authority figures.
Not necessarily your first choice, but.. it beats being unemployed.
Reminds me of the time I was told to cover my school books in anything I liked, anything I asked..
New school rule, anything but famous naked artworks..
@Nanos Well I do get offers from startups sometimes, they promise no pay whatsoever. Like, write an engine for us and maybe we'll give you some money one day. There's no way I'm taking that deal.
I should probably sell game assets, the indie market would totally eat up my shit. Or restrain myself from slapping GPL on every last file I'm legally allowed to perhaps. But eh, I have such a poor reach online that most things I've tried so far haven't gotten me much cash in return.
And I really enjoy joking about it but I think I might be homeless in a few years if I don't come up with something. Better think fast.
I wouldn't recommend being homeless, tried that 3 times so far !
When I say 'tried', I really mean, no choice in the matter..
> maybe we'll give you some money

I believe the trick is to choose the right one that succeeds and the folk pay you in shares. ( In advance.. )
Or, you try several times, until by chance you pick one that succeeds, since it is quite difficult to figure out in advance, what will succeed in the market.
But that is only half the story, since the other half depends on who else you are working with, will they pull their weight, do they have the ability to do the job ?
They will need to feed you and keep a roof over your head whilst you work for free though !
Baby steps, walk before you can run, wait too long for that perfect opportunity, and you might die of old age before that happens.
@Nanos stuff I upload doesn't get much exposure, and there's only so much traction one can get by spamming random boards. There IS paying for promotion, but the prices are fairly high for me right now.
I'm not really expecting a great opportunity, but I want *some* income to support my family; I don't think a little cash for my time is unreasonable, specially if it's a game studio likely to overwork me down to complete burnout.
Eh... but I don't know anymore. I look at job listings and the requisites are always insane. I can give lessons and think I'll continue to do so, I just don't make that much from that. I need either something better or a side project that yields a little extra... fulltime for no pay is just NOPE all around.
I'd suggest finding YouTube/etc. channels that do reviews, and submit your item there.
Since their success requires a constant stream of stuff to review, they tend to review anything folk send to them. :-)
You might want to get some private reviews first, so if your product sucks in any particular way that you can improve it, you can do so before the big reviewers get to tear it to shreds.
Also, don't over look the up and coming new reviewers who have yet to get millions of subscribers, since they will be easier to get your product reviewed with.
Local newspapers also tend to be starved of news and will often do a story on anything.
The same can also apply to local TV news as well..
Tonnoman090918123dYou totally should have made a webpage that somehow relates to your game but still doesn't force you to make just a generic webpage
Wisecrack482222dFive years later:
RELEASES BATTLEFIELD 9.
Teacher is still failing you.
maladiec2922dSimple. Make a landing page with a huge red button download for the game :)
@Nanos Finding loopholes is sometimes super interesting aswell.
I only finished german "Abitur" because i basically took an undocumented Shortcut.
So there is the concept of dropping certain exams at the end by completing a thing called "Besondere Lernleistung". It's something like a separate Project that will be counted as exams. One of the requirements was to make a Documentation of the project and give one copy of it to every reviewer. Now to the fun fact. The regulations said nowhere, that it should be given them on paper. So i just emailed each if them a copy of the documentation.
We had an angry meeting with the Headmaster, since it was a gray area, but me and my partner both passed this with a pretty good score.
Makes me think of an idea I had for fusion powered headlights, technically legal I think..
Well, if its brighter than the sun, it should work well at night in a glass reactor chamber strapped to the front of my car in pairs. :-)
I'm still pondering if one could stowaway a small solar powered spaceship on a rocket launch to make its way to the moon and write graffiti on it..
