Hello Ludum Dare, I’m somewhat active in the IRC, but not so much in the competitions or on the site. For those of you who don’t know who I am, I’m Bret Hudson, an indie game developer from Minnesota. I run indie(Function);, an indie game development media and education group. indie(Function); primarily consists of a radio show, and a currently dead magazine.
indie(Function); is low on members right now, consisting of myself, the co-founder Ian “Halfrican” Jones, and Mike LeRoy. We’d like to revive indie(Magazine);, but in order to do so, we need a designer and possibly a few more writers since Mike and I have a hard time putting together 20-30 pages of content by ourselves. However, with the proper team, I’m sure indie(Magazine); can come back to it’s old self and possibly beat the records we currently have placed (most viewed magazine has 1,100 views as of typing this up).
Here’s a list of different positions that are available:
- Magazine designer
- Magazine writer(s)
- Social Media Helper (Post updates to our Facebook, Twitter, forum topics, RSS feed, etc)
- “Gatherer” (Finds topics to talk about, thinks up interesting topics, etc)
- Recruiter (Finds both new members for the team, as well as contacts people for interviews)
None of the above positions are pay-jobs, we currently have no income. The team in the past has always been friendly, and I can imagine it will continue to be with any new members we receive. The positions are great for experience and offer opportunities to talk to some bigger developers (past interviews have included Edmund McMillen, Alec Holowka, Chevy Ray Johnston).

Thank you for your time, and I hope to have some of you join us in bringing the indie gaming community indie(Radio); and indie(Magazine);.
