Hi there! I’m Upbeat, an experienced builder and game designer. Over the last few weeks, I have been drafting, planning and building concepts based off a tower defense game for fun, but over time I have decided to take it to a more serious project as I am happy with the game design and current aesthetic as of right now.
I have worked on multiple games before, and I am looking to work with a programmer, preferably only one, but possibly multiple, in order to transform my work into functional assets for a game.
About The Job
I am searching for a programmer that is okay with working on a semi-long term project with me. Here are some qualities that I value strongly:
Because we are working together, I completely value transparency when it comes to activity and completion times. If you take too long, and it’s not outlined why (i.e. you’re ‘ignoring’ me), I will literally not want to work with you; I’d rather not make a game with a developer which activity is volatile and doesn’t reply to my messages.
Scripting quality should be fair/good. I don’t really like it when people use bad scripting practices
Some things about me you may want to expect:
I am a builder at heart. My game design is not amazing and so if you want to suggest anything to do with the game, especially if you have a percentage of the game, mention it; we’re working on the game together!
My deadlines are not strict, and I am pretty tolerant but if things don’t work out I’ll probably mention it quickly; I want reasons for things, and this is something I will reflect in myself, too.
Example of my game's build style
Lobby (subject to changes soon) 100% | Lobby - Roblox
Tower concepts (Obviously subject to more concepts soon) Tower concepts - Roblox
Since this is a semi-long term project, I do not mind paying weekly/monthly. I have up to R$20K and can pay a lot more, due to one of my funny limited investments… I wouldn’t like to though, and I am completely fine with percentage; UI designers and other individuals that may be involved will not be offered percentage and so this is only representative of one programmer with me:
If you want to be paid by percentage, the game is not very profit oriented and will mainly just stem from premium payouts or some gamepasses here and there. If i end up just firing you during the project, I can pay you by how much you did currently but I wouldn’t like to do this. I am only offering percentage if I actually am confident in you, like your scripting and you’re the only scripter in the project.
I don’t know how long this project will take for a scripter, but the main content, since it’s just a tower defense game, may be done by September? I’m unsure
If you want to be paid for each individual task you do, that’s fine, that’d be representive of all your work and I would actually prefer this.

Thanks for reading!
