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 games developed with Game Maker can be found here.
- My published iOS and Android games be found here.

Οδηγός PSP με Ελληνικά μενού


Από καιρό έψαχνα να βρω έναν εύκολο και ασφαλή τρόπο για να κάνω το παλιό καλό μου PSP να έχει και ελληνικά, αλλά από τα λίγα πράγματα που βρήκα δεν με βοήθησε κανένα. Έτσι βρήκα λίγο χρόνο και ασχολήθηκα με το plugin 'Localizer' με το οποίο μπορείτε να μεταφράσετε τα πάντα από το μενού του PSP.
Έτσι ξεκίνησα και μετάφρασα πολλά από τα μενού, τους τίτλους και τους διαλόγους του PSP.
Δεν είναι πολλά αυτά που έκανα αλλά πιστεύω ότι έχω καλύψει τα βασικά και κάτι παραπάνω. :)

Τι θα χρειαστείτε:
- PSP με Custom Firmware μεγαλύτερο από 5.00 (το έχω δοκιμάσει σε 6.60)
- Το μεταφρασμένο αρχείο και το plugin. Λήψη από ΕΔΩ

1. Κάνετε extract το Greek.PSP.translation.Sakis25.zip που κατεβάσατε παραπάνω

2. Συνδέουμε το PSP με τον υπολογιστή

3. Αντιγράφουμε τα αρχεία 'localizer.dat', 'localizer.prx' και 'vsh.txt' στον φάκελο 'SEPLUGINS' που βρίσκεται στην κάρτα μνήμης του PSP (εάν δεν υπάρχει ο φάκελος τον δημιουργείτε)

4. Κάνουμε επανεκκίνηση το PSP

Εάν όλα πήγαν καλά το PSP σας θα είναι στα ελληνικά!

Οι μόνοι περιορισμοί που έχει το Localizer είναι ότι δεν υποστηρίζονται οι ελληνικοί χαρακτήρες που έχουν τόνο και το τελικό "ς" εμφανίζεται σαν αγγλικό "s".

Crimelife 3 Team Now Hiring!

Crimelife 3 was and still is a huge project developed with Gamemaker 8.0 by a single person, me. :)
As you may already know these days I'm working on iOS games and as much as I would love to work on this again and finish it I never had the time or the enthusiasm I had back in the days. I don't want to abandon this project so that's why I decided to create a team of truthful and skilled gamemaker developers.
Crimelife 3 was and will still be a freeware game so don't expect any payment for it. You will work anytime you like.
Crimelife 3 still needs a lot of work. I will need people to work on adding new missions and more content on the game, improving the graphics and sounds and the overall experience of the game.

Skills Needed:
- At least 3 years registered on the Game Maker Community forums
- A great portfolio of games developed with Gamemaker
- Experience on 3D games developed with Gamemaker (important)
- Experienced 2D and 3D graphics artists
- Gamemaker 8.0 installed
- Ability to work well as part of a creative team
- Passion for building and playing games
- Some free time :)

As part of the team you will have to have some contact with the other teammates through Skype to work together on this.
See it as a open source project that is only available on people that I will trust.

Thats all for it.
If you want to become a member of the Crimelife 3 Team please read the post on the GMC Forums for more information on how to contact me about this here:

PSP Games that look and play better on PS Vita

This is my personal opinion from the games I played on my PS Vita.
Those are the games that look much better on the OLED screen of the Vita and also work great with the second analog stick.
Of course more games could have been there but I will let this to you. ;)
Feel free to share your list with a comment bellow.
