I'm a game developer from Finland that currently specializes in game design and pixel art. I go by the name Reactorcore on the internet. I've been in the game industry for over ten years and as a gamer twice as long.
I believe games can be something more than just throwaway toys, which is what has led me on the path on researching what I call a Boundless Game, a type of a design structure that challenge all known game design traditions to allow for the creation of games that can be played literally infinitely, where one can have an experience of Super Metroid-like exploration, action, discovery and fun, but isn't limited by a scripted narrative or a linear structure, which would make such a game finite otherwise.

Valve seems to be more of a community, than a company. r nEveryone there is a willing partner for a greater good, rather than a forced cog in a machine. r n r nI admire that a lot. Supercell is quite similar to this.
