The secret heroes who build your games

Postby richomack360 » 08 Oct 2012, 14:04

Would rather the programmers got some sleep so there are less bugs in modern games ! If you had worked Kevin longer you would of had a South Korea suicide on your hands !

On the plus side a 6 out of ten isn't bad, should we buy it at full price ?

Most importantly - serious question, will you be doing a yearly sequel ? Just so you can defy all the people who say sequels are copy and paste jobs ?

A good read and I enjoyed following the weekends development over Twitter as well.

I think we all know that producing a Game is difficult, time consuming and at the end of it no real recognition apart from a wee bonus, your name in the credits and I suppose the most important thing, self recognition.

I think (from what I can take from it) that those same Game makers found journalism to be not the easiest thing to pick up and put down (ond paper).

Hopefully there are a few others who will take this into consideration the next time they want to bash a typing error or a silly glitch?!

Great read. It's always good to get a insight into other jobs. People think other people's jobs are easier than their own.

Y'see people might laugh at a dustman's job, but at least they get some kip every night.

A really fascinating read. That 48 hours seemed to be pretty damned grueling just like the Molydeux game jam a few months back. Kudos for doing this Rob.

What a cool idea for an event. I'm assuming you guys will be doing this every year from here on out?

It's crazy how dedicated programmer's are, and there's no doubt that Kevin Chandler, with that kind of commitment, will someday be working for a top game developer.

That offered a very interesting insight into the demands and responsibilities of each individual who contributes to the development of a computer game. I very much enjoyed reading that. Thank you, Rob.

Liked the music on yours Rob, Double droid is the clear winner though, one doesnt work at the minute and the cheesines of the remaining ones instruction screen and home page looks cool.
I think a slightly different challange of a week long ,pass the program would be cool (say 12 hours a programmer one in UK then Australia, then USA etc), if you came up with an end product that could go on a store and raise some money for charity, that would be extremely cool.
Hey its Martin A , not Martina by the way, cheers
