Igor Hatakeyama's Blog


I'm a young brazilian Game Design Student (Bachelor's degree) willing to gather as much game design knowledge as possible. Be it by studying hard or by learning how NOT to make games with weird failed projects, it doesn't matter: knowledge is golden, either in the form of a mistake or in the form of a success. I worked as a QA Tester in two companies here in Brazil so far. I know it's one of the lowest jobs in the game industry, but that's what my country has to offer. Being a game designer here is tough.

My ultimate life goal is to be able to one day be an Indie developer and be able to survive doing it. It's my dream.

I'm also the co-owner of an independent game development team called Bogdog. Visit our website!

As a Brazilian game design student I see that a lot of people from Brazil are curious about making games. In this blog I will clarify some details that usually are left unsettled when they ask me about it and also reveal my personal experience.
