Indie Advice: Working with Freelancers

Apr 112014

Even if you do most of game development yourself – programming, art, design, etc, every once in a while your skills invariably aren’t quite enough to tackle some of the jobs. Music, for example, is a disaster if you try and do it yourself. Get a professional in! Or maybe you feel swamped and want […]

INDIES: What you probably need to know about The TV Industry

Apr 12014

I’ve written a lovely long article for Rock, Paper, Shotgun about my experience in the TV Industry, and what indie devs should probably be aware of when metaphorically getting into bed with TV people. Have a look, it’s all words and pictures.

Size Five is Hiring!

Feb 122014

Hello! I need a freelancer to do some UI Design! Is that you? Would you like to do that? Really? Huh. It’s a simple enough gig. I need a clever, nice-to-use Upgrade/ Shop system designing for a game project. This isn’t a ‘visuals’ job, that’ll come much later. It’s getting all the buttons and tech […]

Jan 102014

Hello! Not going to lie: the purpose of this post is that I haven’t updated The Main Site in MONTHS and I thought I probably should. 2013 was fairly tough going at times, and held more than a few eye-opening moments of realisation of what the indie industry is, what it’s become, where it’s going. […]

Ben There, Dan That! and Time Gentlemen, Please! on a MAC

Sep 302013

Hello! This bewildering magic right here makes the games run on a Mac! I have no idea how it’s done and it’s not officially supported, but if you have a Mac that should mean you can play the games! This only works with the GOG.com versions, so make sure you buy from them. Buy them […]

What Next?

Sep 92013

With Gun Monkeys out and done and theoretically self-sustaining, it’s time to look at what’s next for Size Five. Firstly, it goes without saying I’ll be continuing to support Gun Monkeys. There’s a patch incoming for a few minor bugs and what-have-you. But outside of all that it’s time to think about The Next Game. […]

Aug 272013

Hello! I’ve been Beta testing a new thing on Gun Monkeys for the last few weeks. It seems to be working, so here’s the announcement: As part of ongoing efforts to keep indie Deathmatch shooter “Gun Monkeys” the success it almost definitely deserves to be, the game now automatically generates free Steam keys for anyone […]
