With a variety of skill-sets, including illustration to writing game music, Thomas believes in personality-driven game-development combined with the power of individual persistence.
In 2016, Kickstarter resoundingly supported my game about a minister in Hell, and raised over $100,000. So you can imagine how excited and nervous I am about my next Kickstarter campaign, the sequel to my first Flash about a boy named Pete in a coma.
After 5 years of obsessive development, my game about Hell is officially ready to be judged by the world.
The Legend of Zelda, Resident Evil, and Castlevania. These are games with incredible soundtracks. Each one is unique in its own way, but they all share common traits.
I woke up around 3:30 a couple days ago and I was baffled. The Kickstarter for my game Pinstripe had been successfully funded in less than a day.
After almost 4 years working on a single game, somehow I got a little bit of affirmation that I was on the right track: my game was shown at The Game Awards. It was super cool, but made me wonder, was working alone on this game year after year worth it?
You won’t finish your game. No, really. You probably won’t. Just give up now because you are wasting your time.
Or do this instead: imagine the payoff of actually finishing it.

Very true. I agree one-hundred percent. Failure is really the only way to grow. Even on the most basic level, exercising is a form of forcing your body to fail, your muscles to tear, and grow back stronger. r n r nBut if we don 't finish things, something worse ...
