comment What can I do to increase the female:male ratio of gamers in an online, casual gaming, community?
I would argue that exploitive visuals won't turn off a gender as they will just turn off a personality type.

comment What can I do to increase the female:male ratio of gamers in an online, casual gaming, community?
I don't think cleavage would necessarily "drive girls away". I'd focus more on play and the actual elements of play of the game -- girl gamers I personally know tend to like fantasy games like Diablo II and not like military simulation games like BF3.

comment Can I use popular classical music as my game's soundtrack?
You mean like "cover" a song that's not in the public domain yet? That may be possible but I'm not sure about that.

Thanks for this answer. It turned out I didn't have a depth buffer attached.

comment OpenGL sprites and point size limitation
In this case using index buffers is just additional overhead. Each of the 4 vertices is only visited exactly once in drawing the quad. The post I linked does describe how to do hardware instancing on an ES 2 GPU

comment Working out of a vertex array for destrucible objects
I thought about using a linked list, but the underlying data needs to be an interleaved array with guaranteed contiguous storage that can be passed to the drawing API (glDrawArrays(), in this case)

comment Where is quality paid game music?
$1000 is way too expensive for a small developer. Try premiumbeat.com - $30/track, royalty free (volume of sale does not increase cost)

comment How much would it cost to hire a musician
If you're just starting up, do not hire a musician. Audition existing work and license it. If you hire a musician you're asking for a never-ending feedback loop of "oh, go add this," or "fix that", which you cannot afford as a small studio. Whereas with already finished work, you simply accept or reject is in a click (and changing your mind isn't nearly as expensive)

comment Looking for a royalty free sci-fi sounding song thats 1:00+ long, and costs <= $5
Oh man, premiumbeat has some really good stuff, for much less than independent contractors would charge (and you get to see the finished product up front!)
