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.

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.

Hello this is Gulshan Negi
Well, hiring a roguelike developer can be a bit challenging, as it requires finding someone who has specific skills in game development and a good understanding of the roguelike genre. Secondly also remember, hiring a developer is a significant investment, so take your time and be thorough in your search to find the right person for the job.
Thanks

Hiring roguelike developers can be challenging as it requires specific skills and knowledge. Here are some steps you can follow to hire roguelike developers:

1: Understand the job requirements: Before hiring roguelike developers, you should clearly understand the job requirements. A roguelike developer should have experience in game development, particularly in the roguelike genre. They should be familiar with game mechanics, procedural generation, and artificial intelligence.

2: Advertise the job: Advertise the job opening on online job boards and forums focused on game development, particularly in the roguelike genre. You can also reach out to game development communities like Reddit's /r/roguelikedev subreddit.

3: Review resumes and portfolios: Review the resumes and portfolios of the candidates to identify the ones with relevant experience and skills. Look for candidates with experience in game development, particularly in the roguelike genre, and with experience in procedural generation and artificial intelligence.

4: Conduct interviews to assess the candidates' technical skills, knowledge, and experience. Ask questions related to game mechanics, procedural generation, and artificial intelligence.

5: Test their skills: You can give the candidates a programming test or a sample project to assess their programming skills and problem-solving abilities. This can help you to evaluate the candidates' abilities and ensure they have the necessary technical skills for the job.
