All the Boring Bits of Paperwork you have to do as an Indie Developer

Apr 92014

Everyone knows that being an indie dev is the best job in the world. When you’re not just playing games on the sofa in your underpants surrounded by Crunchy Nut Cornflakes, you’re idly making guns and things that explode.

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

Mar 282014

Hello! A couple of times over the last week or so, the subject of decent Point n’ Click puzzle design has come up. This is the thought process I go through when designing puzzles.

I recently did an interview for Press X to Win about Gun Monkeys. Some of the questions were REALLY HARD, and you should totally go and read it. To spare of you looking with eyes at the Google Translate editions of interview, here my original replies is, in English.

The Cost of Infinite Monkeys

May 162013

It’s time to start thinking about how much to charge for Gun Monkeys. I’ve always said I think I underpriced Time Gentlemen, Please! when I put it at £3 ($5). At the time, it seemed like a fair price for a non-talkie game in a dying/ dead genre. I quickly learned two things: a nicely-budgeted […]
