David Rico's Blog


Indie Game Developer. Working 9 to 5 so I can keep my 8 to Midnight job as an indie game developer. 

As a software developer by trade, I deeply enjoy the myriad of problems we need to tackle to create a polished game. I also am extremely interested in the field of AI and believe that games these days don't spend enough time or effort on AI. I also enjoy procedural generation far too much for my own good. 

I am the creator and Programmer/Wearer of many hats of Rebirth, a procedural sandbox survival horror inspired by the likes of H.P Lovecraft, Silent Hill and STALKER. 

Rebirth has been officially Greenlit by Valve on Steam, and will be widely available across most digital distributors once it releases. 


You may find out more about Rebirth on the Steam Greenlight page as well as our website (

Thoughts on how to improve gaming and game development social climates by fostering and encouraging new developers to join and make more diverse games rather than badgering existing developers to do it for us.

Hi Christian, r n r nyeah I agree that tone is hard to read online. I 'll owe up to any negatives my perception of his points may have caused on the comments. r n r nHonestly the main thing I hope people take away from the article is that ...

The idea that if my game gets on Steam, I will make tons of money will soon disappear, once the developers cheating the system like this actually end up on Steam. r n r nIt 's very easy to see the effects of a flood of bad games and apps ...

I agree that Unity is not the best value now that UE4 is out. Any new gamedevs should really be trying out UE4 since what you get for 20 dollars is ridiculous. r n r nOr you can make flappy bird clones with Unity Free.

I kind of wish they had cancelled Dust instead and spent their time on this. r n r nI was hoping for EVE online minus the space spreadsheets. I 'm super disappointed :-/

I find myself in pretty much the same situation, but with my game Rebirth already green lit on steam since last August. I doubt Valve will be switching gears. It looks like they 're ramping up, much to my disappointment. r n r nSteam will soon or is already slowly ...
