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.

More Screenshots

In the Crimelife games, you explore a huge city, gunning down cops and pedestrians, carjacking, crashing and generally having fun with the freedom of the game.
You can call it a GTA clone but I have put almost everything I know about Gamemaker in to it. It's a huge project that needs a lot of time when you work all alone on it. I'll try to do my best and finish this project sometime in the future.
A big thanks to all of you guys for all the love and support you have given me for this game and all my other games. You are all welcome here!

  5. Nice.
    I love all of your games,
    And this looks awesome!

  6. O programa que você usa para criar esses jogos?

  7. What program you use to create these games?

  8. Hi Sakis25,

    Your games are awesome. For game maker they are nothing short of the best, and deserve to be the best. I have only tinkered with GM and have never actually made anything. That aside I have found it to have limited capabilities for 3D. I had no idea that shat you have accomplished was possible. Due to the amazing games you have made with GM I know you have quite a talent. I would like to point you in the direction of Unity. It is a 3D game design tool. The basic version recently went free. It is another thing I have only tinkered with. It would allow you to add effects. I realize that the ridiculous $1499 price on the pro verrion will probably stop you from going that far but I am sure with your vast skill you will be able to do some amazing things. Hope I was helpful.

    P.S. the website is www.unity3d.com


    P.S. Will there be a Crimelife IV

  10. Dude,
    your game is not like GTA san andreas, but it rocks! I have all crimelifes, and they are pretty cool!

    You should get an job at Rockstar Games :D

  11. maybe u shold put good draw distance more weapons and a tank hunter army hydra and the horn and the siren in CRIMELIFE IV and an unlocked safe house

  12. hi,
    I think Matthew is right. U are talented and you schould try unity3D to improve your effects(when it rains the wole game slows down). Your graphics are good but not perfect... Your basic idea is great, maybe add some mission to make it mor interesting. I love your phone menu, great idea!
    Ask some money for untiy3D with your birthday, and you'll get there!


  13. how do i buy a gun from the gun shop? i've been trying but i can't figure it out

  14. i am making crimelife 4 and if anyone is willing to help me please text me at 7573835199

  15. how do u talk to the owner of the gun shop

  16. I think that you can like change the driving style to the crimelife 2 type because when u reverse and o forwards, it is confusing. I also think you should having inner buildings like crimelife 2. I think you should merge both games (crimelife 2 and 3) into one game and use the train to travel from one city to another.You should add both game's weapon together. In short i hope you will merge both games into one.

    You are awesome! GM's 3D ability are extremely limited. Never thought this was even possible!

    When will crimelife 4 be out? looking forward!

  17. Will you make it multiplayer.... like the pong in the tutorials? Hoep you will !

    Your Greatest Fan

  18. hey sakis25 I was wondering if you have time to make it could you make a assassins creed game please? I reckon everyone will love it! thanks

  19. why can you just put crimelife II cars in crimelifeIII that would be really easy.

  20. awesome! now i suggest you to work on crimelife 4 with gm8! its gonna be SUPERB!

  21. Woooohhoooooo! Crimelife 3 is now much better than I expected! Already addicted!

  22. Hi, I had an idea for collectible items on the map, like in GTA SA
    and also in Guns and Spurs, and also more things where we can spend more money, thanks.

  23. theres this bumping noise it wont stop its annoying so please fix it i like the game so far and i finished all the missions in beta 0.4, thanks:)xD:D and ill try to see if i can fix it myself, if not i will play guns and spurs or other games :)

  24. @ John, to stop the noise you have to find the source of it (where it is
    loud and clear) and an error, like a car stuck inside the other, or trapped inside a building or something like that, then just get the car out of it if you can not take it out blow it up.

  25. Hey man!!!Hello Sakis25 i'm brazilian and I really like your games, they are wonderful.
    I had an idea to make a version in Portuguese of crimelife 3. I understand a little English, and if you send me the texts of the game, such as missions, car name, weapons name, name of locations accessible to the character, and all other texts of the game, I would translate and send to you give the magic of putting the texts in the game was already translated all yours.

    Send me E-mail: toh_soldier@hotmail.com
    and tell me what you think of the idea!

    P.S. the game is very popular here in Brazil in its English version. Ever felt like if there was a translated version for us??
    If you like the idea will work only to send the text, I translate, you put in Crimelife 3 and publish the version.
    To remember this is my e-mail: toh_soldier@hotmail.com

  26. in crimelife IV you should put more than one playable character, or a customisable guy

  27. hello sakis25
    As toh_soldier said,
    what do you think we make a brazilian version? We can translate it, and it will be more sucessfull...
    If you like the idea, I can translate to spanish too
    If you accept, contact me: leo2007pereira@hotmail.com

  28. Hi Sakis25, I'm loving the the Crimelife, series, it's awesome. I have a few suggestions to add. On the map, is it possible for you to have an airport or something, so you could fly a plane to a different city or something. It would take roughly 10 minutes swim, 5 mins on jetski, and 2 mins on the plane or something so you coould get to this extra city. If you made the map really big, it would be great!

  29. to download game maker just visit www.remo-xp.com
    and search in the search box

  30. How do you make the well 3D Textures and Models???

  49. HI,sakis25

    U should make crimelife3 co-op split screen.
    and make it were u can use joystick.
    and also can u make it were u buy your clothes
    instead of them being in your closet?
    and try to make it like san andreas?
    ps:just given u some ideas;)
    if u would like more ideas i'll be glad to help u.
    here is my email:(tyandsha1@gmail.com);)

  50. I know u have a life to live and got other things
    to do,but i like covert ops games and i was wondering if u could make a game called project lockdown,it would be like splinter cell and syphon fillter in one game. i made an 1,2,3,2d version of the game but i used GM 5.3a and don't know how to use GML or some of the drag and drop scripts.
    and 2-3 are'nt finished yet but they are playable:)
    just asking if u would like to remake my
    game 2d with enemy AI because your more expert with GM than I.
    i don't know how to make character shoot with
    mouse.and i cheated and used the tutorial platform 6
    and just changed sprites and added some things that i know.

    if u give me your email i can send u the games
    that i made. if u do deside to work on something
    different. i think the game would be awesome
    if u made it!!!
    I'm a big fan of your games and would like to see this project lock down game hit the top 10;p im giveing u permission to rebuild this game with GM7-8 if u like to.

  51. and i forgot one thing can u draw the sprites
    make the game look more custom instead of
    the sprites i ripped from splinter cell game boy advance games.

  52. Hey Sakis25!

    I really like your games and I'm looking forward to more in the future :)

    But, I suggest some things to improve your 3D games a lot: use a new program for your games, not GM. GM is a program for amateurs who are new to the programming world, and it is a program for 2D games. You are not an amateur, and you want 3D games, not 2D. 3D looks horrible in GM. I suggest you move on to the more professional stuff.

    These are the programs I suggest for your 3D games:

    1)Unity 3D-look for a torrent for Unity 3D pro (be careful for viruses) becauses it costs way tooooo much. There you use C# and javascript to script the game.

    2)Blender-use this program for 3D modeling. It's completely FREE and there are plenty of tutorials on their site (blender . org)

    The rest you know very well (sound, image editing). Keep in mind I only want to help you because your games are very good and you can do much better. Good luck :)
