I’m the founder and CEO of BetaDwarf - maker of FORCED.
Please visit my blog baboonlord.com.
I have a lot of experience with people working for free. I have made a list of tips for both employees and employers. I think it's an important subject to make guidelines for, even though it might be a taboo.
3 years ago we formed a company, 8 months ago we got a success with our game FORCED and started structuring our company with the goal of achieving a creative momentum driven environment - we want partners, not employees.
Why you should participate in the Intel Level-up Award 2014, and what winning in 2013 meant to our debut title FORCED.
3 years ago 8 of us moved into a university classroom and lived there illegally for 7 months. Then we were discovered and thrown out - having no place to live - 3 years later we've launched our game with success!
The game industry is one of the most demanding industries to work in.
Knowing your competition might help you learn better.
