Making a game bigger doesn’t always equal to making it better. Game development is already complicated enough. I don’t need it to make it even more complicated by designing too much game. In other words, I always remember to KISS.
The best piece of advice I can give to game-making newbies would be: how about not trying to be better than * or if your game will never be as good as *, and simply try to make something different based on your own experience?
It can be interesting to see what happens when you make the game “you wanna make” but you take into consideration what your limitations are, and what limitations you want to impose.
These past years (or so) we’ve had many horror game devs stating that, to make a good horror game, you must take away from the player any gun and combat skills so the player is completely defenseless, like that’s the only way to make a “good” horror game.
“The (*) Open World” is a really small protest game I made for a "personal game jam" this weekend. This game was born as a reaction to an article I read the other day, about a guy and his 3d-printable gun.
When I say “unconventional” multiplayer I talk about bringing mechanics usually reserved to single player games into the multiplayer realm, but also bring the multiplayer back into the living room and away from the cold wired world that is the internet.
As someone who's making a game about violence, what happened in Boston yesterday got me thinking about violence yet again. This is not a "game-making" blog post.
If the general public doesn’t care about X male character being too though, rude and joyless, why do they care too much about Lara Croft not being “Croft enough”?
Today I want to talk (or rather, write) about characters and why this matters. In some games, characters are "empty vessels" that players step into, but in other games, characters are something more, and actually important and meaningful.
I don’t want people to think videogames are maturing because they see “what else a videogame can be” and get a game about walking, but because they see this game about a homeless drug addict or this kid who joined the gangs to escape his abusive parents.
