Gamkedo Club provides mentored, online, team game development practice. For details visit http://gamkedo.com
Our Club is open to the public. Like a gym anyone can join, without application, for monthly dues. This form is intended for people for whom the dues ($59/mo) might be difficult to afford long-term, but who would otherwise be an active member. Accepted applicants can become full "Gameplay Developer" members at no direct cost, dues fully covered.
Sponsorship is made possible thanks to anonymous supporters on Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/gamkedo). The club's founder, Chris DeLeon, is responsible for selection from applicants. No one else will see this information. We consider financial matters private and will never mention between club members or in game credits which members are sponsored.
Only one application should be filled out per person. Any applicant not accepted on a given cycle will still be among those considered in later months.
Filling out and submitting this application is free. This places you under no obligation. You may decline if contacted about acceptance, or later discontinue at any time. In either case, that position would open to a different applicant. In order to join, members need to be ok with our Membership Agreement and Anti-Harassment policies (both available in the Join section at http://gamkedo.com).
The platforms we use for club games are JaveScript on HTML5 Canvas (vanilla, without libraries) for 2D fundamentals, and Unity/C# for 3D (without Asset Store). Membership includes videos and personalized support for help learn these platforms. Not everyone in the club is a programmer or required to write code. All projects are a team effort, and some members specialize primarily in other aspects of development including art, audio, writing, and/or level design.
Applications are considered in the order received. Chris is primarily looking for:
(a) reflection that someone understands what the club is and what it's about (details can be found on our registration page, http://gamkedo.com), and
(b) whether someone seems likely to be an earnest, active, and supportive member in our community, eager to learn and practice together.
