How Every Little Decision Can Bring You Closer To or Further Away from Creating Crap
“A (self-described) “handsome and debonaire stranger” said to me the best way to avoid creating dull projects is “don’t work for shit companies” and “only go indie if you have a brain”. But what happens if you (think) you don’t work for a shit company and you have a brain? Are there still little things you can do that gradually and inevitably steer your project into the sea of mediocrity? This session is a discussion about how all of those little design and process decisions build to make or break your game.”
The panel includes (in alphabetical order):
- Christy Dena, Director, Universe Creation 101
- David May, Lead Programmer at Big Ant Studios
- Floyd Mueller, Head of the Exertion Games Lab, RMIT
- Luke Muscat, Lead Designer and Executive Producer at Halfbrick
It is shaping up to be a cracker panel with lots of war stories and advice on design and process decisions for a variety of games — console, mobile, pervasive, exertion — at the wonderful Freeplay Festival this Saturday. See you there!
