video game: modern 3d board game simulation in UE4

Postby pemcode » Tuesday May 1st, 2018 1:51am

I've been working on a HeroQuest video game (using UE4) (I'm a software engineer). For now it's a HeroQuest board game simulation with one player vs. AI.
If anyone has sufficient time and skill to dedicate significant on-going help, then please contact me. thank you
PS: or if you know someone, or if you know a better place to link this post, then please share. thank you

Here's some notes on categories of work that need to be done:
> Game Programmer: you don't necessarily need to know UE4 (or C++ or Blueprints), but obviously you need to be motivated and competent at programming. Generalist. Game logic. AI. User Interface. Game menus. Effects. Media.
> 3D Modeling: we're using 3d scans for heroes/monsters and custom models for furniture (more work needed). That's for nostalgia (authentic simulation) mode. Beyond that we could also create assets for a visual mode that's more detailed, or a visual mode that's animated. We also need (a) 3d background room(s).
> UI Artist: for all platforms (PC, console, tablet, VR). Artist or Artist-Programmer
> Effects Artist: fancier effects eg with spells, traps, combat. UE4
> Sound (and Music): maybe someone who wants to focus on high quality sound effects, possibly background music or ambient noise.

I post updates (musings/ramblings) (screen shots, videos) about the project on my blog under the "HeroQuest" category:

I'm definitely interested to watch the progress of this, but I don't have the skills to help with any of the above. My programming skills are very limited, and with school and work, I wouldn't have the time to help.

@StratosVX thank you for your interest; what's your programming experience? Is your degree programming related?

Mostly C++ but with a very little bit in Python, Java, C, and specialized languages like AppleScript and PostScript. My degrees will be Computer Engineering and Electrical Engineering when I'm done (in about 4 years).

If you have time later (school break?), maybe you could implement/debug some small feature(s)? It is good experience/learning. Let me know...

Maybe the guy who did Hero Quest on Tabletop Simulator can help. He gave us a link.
