'What impact has the game modding community had on your career?'

'What impact has the game modding community had on your career?' Exclusive

May 1, 2015 | By Christian Nutt




This week saw a tremendous amount of controversy around Valve's decision to first enable, and then abruptly disable, paid mods on Steam.

The mod community has been a vibrant part of PC game development for decades, but it was cast into the limelight due to this situation. After thoroughly examining it, we were left with a different question in our minds: What impact does the mod community have on our game developer audience?

To that end, we took to Twitter to ask, and these are the responses we got.

Remember, if you're interested in participating in these conversations in the future, make sure to follow @Gamasutra on Twitter. The questions usually go out on Fridays in the late morning, Pacific time, alongside Tweets of our regular news, blogs, and original writing.
