For over a year I’m working 4 days a week for my day job with every Fridays free to work on my games. It’s a choice I made after being unemployed for about 6 months and sleeping about 4-5 hours a night before that while I was working on MMOs.
You don’t clearly know what’s coming [...]
This is the post I’ll make once I know success. Well I’m writing it now so I’m a bit ahead of time here but it doesn’t matter. I’m pretty sure it’s the post I’ll write anyway.
What is success? Let’s define it as “being able to pay for whatever expense you might have”. Nothing too fancy, [...]
Or demotivational? Anyway it’s a poster. A tongue-in-cheek poster but if I have to say so then … well I’ll try to do better next time.
Marketing is like a highway filled with grey cars. There are so many cars and most of them all look the same so it’s really difficult to have someone notice [...]
I keep telling myself that I should post more on this blog and I never do. I do have stuff to say about games but often I just find someone else who said what I would have said in much better words so my post never leave the draft folder. So my first wish for [...]
Over 1,500 games, 54 millions active user accounts and sales renown to sell countless copies of games that will probably never be played. This is the place a lot of indies hope their game will go to be mindlessly grabbed by some cheap bastards like me.
Live or die, when it’s really needed
I wish I had [...]
I know, I know … most people writing those lists are only trying to “help” or share bits from their experience in the hope to do some good. Well you know what they say about good intentions … well okay it’s not always that bad. I don’t have anything against people writing such list. I [...]
I think that’s what’s annoying me most when it comes to MMOs. No matter how good I can be I still suck.
I vaguely remember trying APB Reloaded. Apparently some kind of 3rd person shooter MMO or something like that. All I can remember from it is that I was useless. I was a cop trying [...]
I wish I could link to that article I read on my PAPER newspaper about 2 weeks ago but apparently making it easy to find offline articles online is similar to witchcraft or something. I’ll come back to this later.
By now I guess you all heard about 38 studios. Well that’s just a tiny bit [...]
The most difficult thing I had (and still have) to do is to explain to players why I’m letting sleep an online game I worked on (not kill just letting it be on its own). It happened to Golemizer and it’s now going in the same direction for Star Corsairs at the moment. It’s not [...]
I don’t mean to piss on Double Fine’s parade but their incredible experience on Kickstarter in the last 24 hours doesn’t mean a whole lot to most of us. For most of us tomorrow will be the same.
Is you name on Wikipedia? Did you released a critically acclaimed game? Did you tape a video with Cookie [...]
