Lake Ridden is a top-rated mystery-puzzle indie game developed by two artists, two programmers/designers, and one producer. Here we'll look back at the two-year production and what it's like to sell indie games in 2018.
From concept to realization, here's the booth art we produced for our upcoming indie game Lake Ridden, which was displayed at EGX in Birmingham, in front of 80 000 visitors.
When making a game you need to keep track of what resources you are burning. It's far more than just time and money. This is Midnight Hub's last post in a series about how to reduce stress when working with games!
This ABC-recipe for making games can help you and your team to understand what should be done and when. It offers a guideline for working iteratively on games, minimizing stress and optimizing testing your upcoming game!
Why do so many game studios work overtime? How do you avoid burning out the passionate people working on your team? And why did Midnight Hub decide to cut down on hours spent in the office?
Here's a simple and straightforward guide on how to cut together and post GIFs showing your game! I'll use the GIFs we have produced for our game Lake Ridden as a case study to help you get started!
