How to hire roguelike devs?
« on: June 06, 2020, 07:47:38 AM »
Say I was looking to hire someone to develop an android roguelike for me, what would be a good place to look and how much would I expect to pay per hour?
What I enjoy the most in roguelikes: Anti-Farming and Mac Givering my way out. Kind of what I also enjoy in life.

Reddit, I guess? Everyone there seems to concentrate on creating commercial roguelites anyway, so.

Damn I hate reddit with a passion though.

There must be actual places where you can hire a programmer (idk if there is a subreddit for that?), I just don't know anything about it. Most of us are creating roguelikes as a hobby and if you would make a commercial one, just do it yourself. Roguelites are quite easy to do anyway, even if you don't know much about programming. It's a small obstacle to hop over if you are a good game designer.

You're looking at this question at the wrong lens. The question shouldn't be "where can I find programmers" it's "where can I find reliable programmers". I specify because on reddit, fiver, etc you can hire some dude to do work, but you may get a quality product you want. This is part of the point of networks: you know a guy who is a hard worker and competent.
If you don't have a network, I say you want to find people developers at game jams. At that low stress environment, if the guy isn't a good programmer you can cut him loose: otherwise he's a keeper and will be good for future contact.
Friends, rogues, countrymen, lend me your ears;
I come to play Rogulikes, and to praise him.
