New Sections

I’ve added to new sections to the website: Video Game News and Indie Games. Video Game News is just that news about video games. Indie Games is page that lists independently made games.

I’ll probably be adding more sections in the future so stay tuned!

Also what do you think about the new layout?

Don’t judge a game by it’s cover

Unlike other industries, in the game world games can go from crappy to spectacular. As long as you have the time and money you can make your game as good as you want. During the crunch period time games can evolve to become masterpieces. At this point in time developers needlessly exhaust themselves as they try to wrap up the game. Why do developers wait till the last minute to make sure everything is good to go? Some blame could go to poor planning but most developers go through this phase so what exactly is the problem here? Is there a solution?  

If you can’t take risks you don’t belong here

This industry is all about risk taking. Whether it be designing a new form of gameplay or hiring team members. Take the dive and hope for the best. At the indie level it’s all about trial and error. As long as you have the patience to last through the many hardships you’ll face, you maybe able to complete your game.

Good luck! 😉

Why games?

The question that I sometimes find hard to answer is what makes creating a game so much fun that I want to spend the rest of my life in the industry? So many people burn-out after a couple of games. I often think what if this happens to me.

So I would like to hear from you, why are you so interested in the gaming industry? How long will you keep on making games?

Another entertainment industry that I’m really interested in is movies. Making a film compared to a game is so much easier and quicker.

Today I went in for a casting call (extras) for the upcoming Transformers movie. I must say that it was a pretty good experience. Waiting in line for 2 hours to fill out a piece of paper and have my picture taken. If I do get the “part” of being one of the many high school students maybe I’ll finally be able to draw the line.

Of course the good thing is that maybe there is no need for me to draw a line at all. If I can embrace both film and games I think I’ll be happy with my job.
