I just launched a new website called Indielicious. It’s all about the Indie Game scene, something very close to my heart. In case you don’t know, Indie Games are cool. They are made by super creative individuals and teams, who mke games for the right reasons. Believe me, I’ve been involved with enough companies and projects over the years, that were all about the wrong reasons.
The indie game scene reminds me of back in the day, when I first started writing game, in the early 1980s. It was all young guys and gals, working for themselves in their bedrooms, making games that they wanted to make. I guess that this way of making games has never really gone away, rather I think I was the one who went away. I went on a wild journey through corporate, big box, sometimes AAA video game development. I got lost in the weeds for many years, chained to big companies, suckling at the big publishers teats (eew!). But now I am back. I’m full time indie again. I”m working from my home, listening to Radio 1 over the Internet, drinking cups of tea, hanging out with my dev buddies, and MAKING GAMES!
I’m also running this new website. Go check it out!
