Anton Temba's Blog


I'm a young game designer from Finland. Also known as Reactorcore on the internet.

I recently opened a free game design consulting service, where you may discuss anything game design related with me, Reactorcore, an experienced modder a walking games industry encyclopedia and indie developer.

This service is completely free and is open to any and all game developers and any other folks interested about game design in general.

I can offer a young perspective that you may not have thought of, provide guidance on how to build infinite games and how to make use of a new business model, which is vastly better than F2P to make your games both profitable as a business and uncompromising fun in gameplay design.

As a game developer, your project can have the potential to have infinite longevity, offer a much richer experience of gameplay and not leave you in a state of emptiness after you finish that usual linear scripted game that you used up fast anyway.
