    The cost of games

    hehe, if we got paid what other people in the tech industry get on average, this chart would be off the scale. some wise words here for sure, doing things procedural no matter your area is certainly wise, if nothing else it's a blast to figure out, but everything has it's limits, just need to figure out the pros and cons. Whats interesting recently, is the biggest games are pretty limited in scope, which is actually smart in it's own right, especially as costs keep going up. I guess, what blows my mind, is how much gamers expect, for say, $30, in a bar, that's a couple of beers and a pizza, maybe 2-3 hours of entertainment, yet games are somewhat expected to last forever, for such value? I'm certainly not advocating we make games $200, but it always fascinates me. Maybe the real issue here is eating/drinking out is too damn expensive!

    Looking for a game development team.

    I've been on some mod teams run by 15 year olds, it can work, but the multiple projects parts basically reads as you don't really have a vision at all. Which is actually fine, if it's just yourself. Getting people interested and involved, especially the ones with actual talent, is a lot of work, especially when it's for free. Hell, even with my 15 or so years experience I'd probably struggle to get a talented team together. Rules are certainly made to be broken, but the advise here is golden and you're more likely to succeed following it than not, if you care about maximizing your chances.

    WIP in WIP, post your level screenshots!

    Awesome maps people, inspiring! This isn't so pretty to look at, but I'm making good progress with my little game prototype.

    Iceland Diaries 2017

    Hey guys, so this summer I went on a really exciting 16 day adventure of Iceland, decided to document most of it and whip up a video series of all 16 days. We have a bunch of artists here who might appreciate the landscapes, the variety of landscapes literally felt like Skyrim, every 50KM or so it felt like a completely different location, no dragons though. The playlist of all 3 parts is below, you can also find my videos on Vimeo for slightly higher quality https://vimeo.com/2dchris Hope you guys enjoy!

    Legal problems remake maps of old games.

    If it's non profit, I doubt it. Many, many people do it, never heard of it being a legal issue.

    Blue Planet II

    Too early to say, but my plan was to always go on a crazy adventure before I hit 35, shit starts getting real then. Lets just say if I do it, I'll be finding ways to potentially further my hobby, but making games is fun.

    Blue Planet II

    I'm intending to drop it all and travel, but I'm planning for it 2 years in advance so I actually make the most of my time and money. It's a serious effort, at least for what I'm planning. That being said, who knows what I'll do in 2 years lol.
