Heh, indies, watch out for people who want to mine you as a cheap and expendable resource. Good article. Wish there was a button to Like the article itself somehow.

Ok, I lost interest in reading more Gamasutra threads halfway through. Alll the ones I did read, that were supposed to contain sexism, contained some poster that was banned. Moderation is working as designed, there is no problem here.

Right, people don 't sufficiently consider that they 're participating in a societal pyramid scheme. Some indies survive and do well and become visible to consumers. Many don 't. The difficulty of an industry could be measured by how many people are at the top of the pyramid, vs. how ...

It 's tough to build a good one with any kind of authenticity to the style one practices. Doing one for Systema, my dominant style now, would be a heavy research project. Then there 's the narrative and gameplay problem of getting an audience to care about the subtleties. Moviegoers ...

Is that a good thing When I judged in the IGF for 6 years, quite a number of years ago, getting through the first round entrants could be quite a burden. Once that initial vetting had been accomplished, picking among finalists was more enjoyable. I haven 't paid much attention ...

I 'm not sure how to react. I like the sales pitch, but I don 't happen to have played most of the games cited as examples of depth. r n r nThe one I have, Minecraft Alpha , I don 't agree that it was deep. It definitely gave ...

I assume that a Facebook ...

I assume that a Facebook gift card or equivalent, is a prepaid, preloaded card that can only be used for the amount of value contained in the card. So the risk is the child blowing the 50 or whatever the giver gave them on the card, not the 1000 button ...

I don 't want to be Mario in a holodeck fantasy life, or James Sunderland, or the kid from Ico, or the main character of any of a dozen Infocom games. It does invoke a dilemma: holodeck Purgatory You are stuck inside a limited being you find repulsive. Hi, I ...

I had to save up and buy my own Atari 2600 for 150. It took me several months of car washings and house chores, but I did get it done. I suppose I had parents wealthy enough to pay me small amounts of money for chores. At least middle class ...
