Talking to Make Games

20 May
May 20, 2015

I was out of town last week, flying up to Joburg for the day job.

It wasn’t ALL business, though. I got in some great board gaming, Cyclades continues to be fantastic and I finally played some Dominion, which was enough to put it on my “future buys” list.

I also gave a talk on System Crash to the Joburg Make Games community, discussing development, design decisions, challenges faced, etc.

Luckily it was recorded (thanks, Eugene!). So, for your enjoyment, dear blog reader, I present my talk. πŸ™‚

(It picks up once we actually get the game running properly, past the text intro bits)

    By the way I have a short novella I wrote awhile back and I’ve been wanting to see if it’s good, I mean not so much a critique but a word of encouragement or slightly where I could improve. If your interested.

    Art is so subjective it’s incredible, How different people perceive it, It reminds me of those imaginary you’d invent in your head at school, when you should probably be studying. :p

    Hah, that Blender video is pretty cool. I’ve heard variations of that kind of speech from a number of artists, yeah. It’s good to keep in mind. πŸ™‚

    Btw I purchased Alien Isolation on steam yesterday, i bought mostly to look at the cool scifi designs but spent most of my time diving behind boxes, trying not attract the attention of the alien, while I was gibbering like an idiot. πŸ™‚

    And yeah, AI is fantastic. I actually need to get back to finishing it, once I’m done with Neon Struct, Invisible Inc and Pillars.
