Brandon Shelton's Blog

 

I’m a co-owner at Wolf Ray Studios, a 2-person indie game company in Denver, Colorado. What motivates me the most is making games that I would want to play: games that have depth but aren’t too obtuse for the average player; games with stories that know when to be shoved in the player’s face, or pulled back a bit and let the player experience for themselves. I believe that games can have both meaningful stories and engaging gameplay, and that’s what I strive for when I think about game design (though I do tend to prioritize gameplay over storytelling). I’m also really interested in Media Theory and Criticism, so I watch a lot of TV, movies, and anime/cartoons. My favorite critic right now is FILM CRIT HULK because he's awesome and smart and actually talks about pop culture.

This was a really good post and I 'm glad I read it. I 'm much better at Ikaruga than RS and I always knew it was because Ikaruga was a less complicated game. I think examining the threshold for when less complexity makes for less fun would be an ...

The response our game has ...

The response our game has had on Greenlight definitely supports this assessment. It 's an RPG with pixel art so most people have written it off as yet another RPGMaker game when it most definitely is not. I think regular pixel art has reached a saturation point in indie games, ...

But as an indie game ...

But as an indie game developer, there 's literally no effective way to get people to realize your game isn 't garbage. There 's just too many games being made right now, so the only way to get consumers to pay attention is through someone they consider an authority. That ...

I read through all of these comments and I just wanna say I love this conversation. It 's been great and awful, but not awful in the sense of badness, awful in the sense of revealing some kind of uncomfortable horror about the universe and humanity. Like, we 're all ...
