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.

Now it's official! EmuStation 3D is here.



If you love to play the good old games in your PC with various emulators and you want to browse through them in a great new way then this program is for you.
Emu Station 3D is a program developed entirely in Gamemaker for PC. I have started working on this for fun and I thought I would keep it for myself (lol) but in the progress it looked very usefull and great so I decided to make it available for everyone.

Emulators or any roms are not included. The program works with the file associations.
You can add games where you can set the title, game (rom) location, cover and screenshot.
You can also download covers and screenshots from the program's browser. (it's a really fast and usefull feature)
In another video I will add a tutorial on how to add games in to the Emu Station.

EmuStation 3D v1.0 is available to download from the official website here: http://emustation3d.blogspot.com

Story:
On a farm somewhere in Greece lives a tsolias with his sheeps. Mr. George.
Near the area there is a very dangerous nuclear power plant.
One day an accidental explosion at the nuclear plant was the cause for a big disaster.
Toxic gases from the plant polluted the air and water in the region and the whole town was infected.
The virus has turned people into zombies!
One day Mr. George was very tired and fell asleep. But his sheeps was outside on the meadow.
Zombies are coming and they look hungry.
They have seen the sheeps... But now it's too late for the poor animals.
Mr. George woke up from the noises and saw the disaster.
Now it's up to him to take revenge for the loss of his sheeps!

New game, help needed!

3D Artists needed.
I was looking for experienced people to work on 3D models including characters, monsters, various objects and environments.
The current project I'm working on is a 3rd Person Action/Adventure game (title to be announced ) based on Greek mythology and I will need more people to help me with the game and even for future projects as a team member of the 'Sakis25 Games'.
(In game credits will be given of course)

The 3d models must be in low-poly quality (max 250-500 polys per model) but with nice looking textures (256x256 px)

Some screenshots from my current game:




NOTE: Please send me a personal message with some samples (pictures or 3D models) of your work at the gmc.yoyogames.com.
