I’ve been thinking about putting up something like a resource page for people here in the Philippines who are looking to try their hand at game design. The idea isn’t completely fully formed in my head, but it’s something of a directory where interested freelancers can post their contact details and samples of their work if they’re willing to do some stuff for games.
Artists are an obvious target audience for this but editors, playtesters, freelance writers and game designers are all welcome to add their contact details as well. What I’m hoping to put together is a showcase and network, so that when someone like me wants to try and make a game, I have one place where I can go to when I’m looking for someone to make interior artwork for a game, edit my work or playtest my game.
I’m not sure how big the pen and paper game development community is here in the Philippines, but I’m sure that there are more than a few of us who have always wanted to come out with a game of our own, especially now that I’m elbows deep into a new game’s development and I’m setting my sights a little higher.
