Just make sure the pizza is a Canadian (Ham, Mushroom and Bacon). Then I could attend vicariously through the entree. And thank you for your kind words!

We know full well that the art shortage has put a damper on our spirits and slowed our progress over all. Its been discussed that we may need to take a summer hiatus to regroup and play catch up with a few things before we progress any further. My main focus is still to make a fully functional and playable Chapter 1 for us to show for our efforts and to give all you guys something to chew on. Scripting is a large task for Abisso to handle alone, so we're certainly not rushing him. Some of it can be very dull work.

I'll do my best to keep with the updates though, I do want people to see life in Forge still Smiley.

Hi there, I'm 17 and from New Zealand.

I've always been into retro games, which is something most people my age can't comprehend. Loom is up there with the classics, and one of my all time favourite games along with Chrono Trigger and Rez.

I'm a musician, and have been for around 8 years. I'm hoping to be part of this project in a big way, but you can find out more about that in the audio section of the forum,

Looking forward to getting to know you all

Dan

Welcome, young one, and don't be worried. Even most people MY age can't comprehend love for early nineties game. You're the 2nd 17 yo in a few days, and this really makes me hope for the future of videogames' creation.

Can't wait to read your post in the audio section: please make sure you provide something to show your skills. You can share it by PM if you don't feel like posting publicly.

Enjoy your stay.

EDIT: P.S. My age is 27, just so you don't think I'm an old geezer.

@abisso Post in the audio section is complete. Check it out Smiley

@selmiak I have all the versions (DC, PS2, 360), and out of DC and PS2 I prefer DC because of the controller, but in my opinion the 360 is the best version because it has the best resolution, framerate of the PS2, sound quality of the DC, and good control making it the definitive version. It's what got me into writing electronic music

Hey, isn't this thread called "Standard "Introduce Yourself" Thread"? But I wouldn't mind a "Retro-gaming" topic in the General Discussion though.  Wink

Hey people!

im balin2k

i have always been into adventure games. growing up my fav were monkey island. that game got me into them and since then its been my fav type of game and im always looking for new games to play. i have a great fondness for fan made games. a while ago i brought the steam lucas arts pack for the indy games. i had heard of loom but had never played it. it was only the other day i finnaly played and was instantly in love with the game, i couldnt beleve that such a great game had been under my nose for so long. i found myself looking up all i could about the game and then discovered te sequels that were never mad. i was quite heart broken that the games were never made, until i found this site, and the word seemed right again. i cant wait to see this game finnished, and if i can help in any way just ask. im a student studying media at uni atm, so i have access to great video and audio equipment including a tv studio and a radio studio/recording booth. so if they can help in any way just say Smiley

Hi Balin, I'm always glad when people discovers great games of the past, and appreciates them.

What are your abilities as a media student? Would you mind leaving a post in the Project Assistance sub-board? The first things that came into my mind, since you have access to professional equipment is voice acting, but I suppose you're not a native English speaker... but maybe you can help in other ways.

Thanks for your offer, in the meantime!

I am RyuSpike and I am from Pennsylvania, USA.  I got here because I favorited Loom fanart on dA.  Having played the game as a kid, it had left an impression that would never leave me to this day.  Now I am 21 years old and still looking into what college I should go to.  Not the wealthiest person around so...  I like to dig into old things I have seen in the past and review them in a more mature perspective rather than an innocent one.  It is always interesting to see how the things you liked aren't always as great as you thought of them to be while other things you often overlooked, or thought boring, turn out to be much deeper and enjoyable to you now.  Just like Loom for example.  Which is how I got here.

But other than being a fan, I don't think I will be much use outside judging the product as it is being made.

Hello everyone, I'm Estme and Abisso brought me here Smiley I'm a 19 year old Loom fan from Poland studying painting at the Academy of Fine Arts. My dream is to become an animator, since I think animation will give me a great opportunity to express myself as an artist. But I have no experience in this and no chances to gain it at the moment.
I introduced myself as a Loom fan and I indeed love this game. I also enjoyed playing Monkey Island series, Goblins (or Gobliiins or Goblins Quest or whatever it's actually called), Teenagent (I truly recommend this one since it's not very popular! It's a kinda short, but hard as hell and extremely funny game that deserves way more fans) or Transport Tycoon as a kid (I downloaded this game again some time ago and had already reached year 2000... game creators had some funny expectation about the future). But my all time favorite game, which has had a huge influence on my imagination and which I can literally play with my eyes close, is Legend of Kyrandia: Hand of Fate.

Enough about me though. I have to admit I am really excited about this project and I'd love to contribute, the thing is I can't do much. I know nothing about pixel art even though I adore old games' graphics. However I can offer my services as a translator, that's for sure. I speak both English and Polish fluently so if you plan to release the game in Polish, feel free to ask me for a translation!
I was also thinking about voice acting, but I still have no experience in this. Definitely should give it a try one day. My friends and family used to tell me I would make a good voice actress.

By the way, if you want to see my art, feel free check my gallery on deviantArt. (I've beenpretty inactive lately so except for the newest studies there isn't much to see there.)

Guess I introduced me in the wrong place in my other post, sorry, I'll start again:

Hi there! I'm Juditangelo and a fan of Loom since teen years, when one of my best friends shared her original Loom for PC game with me, and I fell in love with it! I'm much of a videogames addict and even with great games like we have today, I miss some of the old-fashioned way graphic adventures like Loom or Simon the Sorcerer of the Kyrandia Trylogy.

I ended here thanks to Abisso, who contacted me in my gallery of DeviantArt, and hope to being useful around Forge project, I can offer myself for doing concept art and translation to spanish, since is my mother language.

Not so much to say about me by the moment, I'm a little shy. See you!

Wow, it seems I'm one hell of a talent-scout, am I not?  Grin

Welcome to all of you, and thanks for having found the time to sign in and post.

I suggest you all use the Project Assistance section to make a post about your skills and examples of those. And of course feel free to contact me at the email address I gave you on DeviantArt and that you can find in the Team section of the website by clicking on my name.

And don't be afraid of bothering me in case I forget to answer you: it's been such a messy week and I've contacted so many people I think I should add "secretary" to the list of my occupations for the team.

Enjoy the stay!
