Tom Safarov's Blog


I'm a part of a small indie studio with a passion for the retro and pixel-art games. At the moment we are working on our first PC game. In my articles, I share my own experience, thoughts and solutions with a hope that it may help someone else to make a better game or a more successful product. However, everything I write is solely my own opinion that I do not try to impose on others. Feel free to comment and leave your feedback to my posts! I'm always looking forward to making new connections and engage in constructive discussions. Cheers ;)

P.S. Our another focus is creating graphical assets for the other game developers, so if you ever need a game art outsourcing studio, feel free to reach out here, on Twitter, or through [email protected]
