Leonardo Ferreira's Blog

 

Hello there. I am an independent game developer, living in a quiet, sunlit country below the Equator. I'm currently working solo in my first big project. I'm a long-time reader of Gama, and of anything game-design related, and enjoy discussions about the nature and the frontiers of the medium.

This elitist approach kind of bugs me in a lot of ways firstly, it 's not like proposing non-violent videogames is anything new, especially considering the medium 40-year history. Perhaps it is for the north-american contemporary triple-A industry, but that is too small a group to elicit such praise. r ...
