A little bit about myself

My name is Sakis, I'm an indie games developer from Greece. I started game development as a hobby in early 2005 with Game Maker. I was one of the first developers back then who give more focus on 3D games using Game Maker (which is mostly for 2D games).
Most people may know me from Game Maker Community (with username sakisa) as the creator of the games Crimelife, Guns & Spurs, Mythology, Super Smash Battle and many more.
Now I'm using Unity3D to make games for iOS and Android. My most recent game 'Angel in Danger' which is a 3D platformer is published by Crescent Moon Games for iOS and Android.

In my real job I work as a web developer for a company here in Greece. I know C#, Javascript, html, css, php. I also work as a graphics artist and I also design the graphics for my own games (2D and 3D).
Today game development is my second job, still with the same passion and excitement.

- My published iOS and Android games be found here.

Modeler needed for help on Crimelife 3

Because this project is really huge there are a few things that I will need some help. I need a graphics artist that will help me with the 3d models of the vehicles in game.
The next version of the game will have some new cars modeled by me. However I need someone from the gmc forums that can make more low poly cars for the game.

For more details check out the post in my CL3 site HERE.

Liberty City, It's Over! Whats next? UPDATE!!!

This poster from
Episodes from LC is overlapping a poster found in the Vice City porn studio...
My guess now goes to a new Vice City.
Your thoughts?

GTA4.Net noticed this "ad" in the Episodes from Liberty City instruction manual that, reading between the lines (or around the torn out part, anyway) seems to tease where the series is headed next. And maybe when.

The ad, apparently for a fake movie, declares "Liberty City, It's Over!" implying, naturally, that we're all done here. "Next stop," it says, and that portion appears to be torn out, except for the word "Seagull." I think it looks like the name of a hotel, but who knows.

To the left of that is "Opens March Everywhere," and your guess is as good as mine as to what that means. But Rockstar knows what it's doing here, it's getting people to talk, and we've taken the bait.

My guess about this picture's p
lace is the little skate park from GTA San Andreas:

Or maybe it's a mountain like this:
and I hope it's true. . . who knows?
We have to wait until March for more details.. And I just can't wait!

A great adventure game to remember

Recently I saw this site wich lets you to play classic NES games online.
The first game it came in my mind was The Battle of Olympus I was playing on my NES when I was 7 or 8 years old. Every time I hear that song when the intro starts I'm shivering. It's one of the game songs that you can't forget.

This game is about a Greek named Orpheus, in Ancient Greece. His love, Helene, was poisoned by a snake and died. Later Orpheus learns that Helene was actually taken by Hades, god of the underworld, to become his bride. Upon hearing this, Orpheus begins his journey to save Helene.

During this adventure, Orpheus will need to meet the Greek gods and gain their favor. Starting with Zeus, the leader of the Olympian gods, who encourages the other gods to grant Orpheus powers. These powers are in the form of a weapon, a shield, and other special equipment. Among them a harp, which summons Pegasus to carry Orpheus to far locations.

Orpheus will also encounter mythological creatures such as the: Taurus, Lamia, Cyclops, Centaur, Talos, Minotaur, Cerberus, Stymphalian Birds, Nemean Lion and also a Siren. He will fight his way deep into the underworld, fight and defeat Hades, and finally save Helene. He will acquire several items depicted in the Greek mythology, such as the Harp of Apollo, the Sword of Hephaestus, the Staff of Prometheus and the Sandals of Hermes.

The pretext of Orpheus's quest is the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Elements of the quest are drawn from the stories of Heracles and Perseus. Many characters, enemies, locations, and items are also based on Greek mythology. The gameplay and graphics seem to be strongly influenced by Zelda II: The Adventure of Link, released in 1987.

With all about Greek mythology this game has kept me playing for hours. As you know I live in Greece and everything in that game are well known to me. I suggest it to all the retro Zelda fans out there who may want something similar with a very great story and smart gameplay full of adventures and secrets.
