Daniel Backteman's Blog


I am not a professional, but I am still fiercely passionate about games, gaming and the medium. I'm not a 100% sure that I'm supposed to be here without having released or significally worked on games, but I will stay until I'm thrown out Jazz-style.

I rarely make sensational statements for the sake of it, but it happens. Pretty much nothing I say is scientific, so take it all with a pinch of salt. If anything, you can always count on me to be honest - something I usually try to incorporate in my posts, often to the detriment of simple readability (hence the seldomly sensational comments I write to mentally compensate, for shits and giggles).

Gaming is something I'm just waiting to be fed up with, like with songs or some foods; but it never happens. Even though I might tire of playing the games, I never tire of gaming as a whole. 
The future of the medium is strong and promising, and I will take a stance if I believe someone is carrying it towards a wrong, dark direction.


...Yeah, that'll do as a profile. Save.

Extra Credits coincidently just released a video addressing this creative philosophy: Fail Faster . r n r nIteration is the way to go, failing paves the way. Trying to design/create something perfect from the get-go, and not accepting anything other than perfection, is shooting yourself in the foot.
