    I've never really had to do any really hard, long term crunch in my time in the industry so I guess I've been lucky. The worst I've had was where I went to work from 7am-11pm for a week. It was at the end of my very first project in the industry so I was super keen to prove myself I guess. I had to get a complete whitebox done in that week otherwise the DLC level would have been cut (and I assumed my job?).
    But mostly, others will crunch and you'll feel bad that they are and you aren't. Or there may be bugs in your department and others will be blocked from progressing until it's fixed so you feel pressured into getting it sorted. A lot of people do genuinely just care about the project and want to push that bit harder to get it through the door, or there may be bonus incentives to help motivate people, but I've never been anywhere that really offered that.
    At CDPR they can earn tokens for extras on top of their bonuses...

    I feel sorry for the devs. They've been crunching for god knows how long. Probably screaming at management saying the game isn't ready for release and then they go ahead and release it anyway causing a bit of a shit storm with tons of bad press and angry fans. No doubt they'll be asked to crunch/work over the Christmas period to get hotfixes and patches out when upper management knew what state the game was in.
    I know it's a big game with tons of stuff going on and bugs are inevitable in a game of this scale. But they must have known how bad it was on the current generation of consoles and still decided to release it anyway. I'm sure they'll fix most of the issues eventually and I am still looking forward to playing it myself but I just feel bad for the devs.

    Honestly, at this point, it sounds more like assumptions and personal projections. It really does seem like the things you've been saying are more aimed towards yourself than anyone else. I remember checking your steam profile about a year ago, when you had written in it that you had someone supporting you with money and were open to donations. Checking it now, you've removed that. You brag about having over 5k hours in the SDK over a period of 7 years, but you criticise people for spending their time making skins to try and earn some extra money on the side? And at the same time, you make assumptions that people do not have their priorities in order while you.. clearly do? Sorry, but there's just a discrepancy between what you're saying and what you're actually doing. If you want to show people that there's a better way, you need to do yourself first. Show them you can be creatively successful and also support yourself.

    yo! It's going well albeit a bit slow since it's a part-time venture, I've got a tiny team of guys helping out here and there particularly player locomotion and programming.
    I am not interested in being one of those indies that posts GIF's every day to gather a following, I find social media very distracting so I'd rather spend my time working on this, then when it's done, it's done.... I'll probably hit the socials a bit harder once it's close to release.
    That said, we're working to get something released for early 2021, a fully playable slice of the game. I'll share some more as soon as I can.
    Btw, a little while ago, I released another small teaser, you can check it out here:

    Please do not talk about LOWERING prices that Valve pays. Valve is generous in what they give (because the fact that they are paying you is enough as is to me) for sure but Valve also makes a literal shitton more from the skins than you will ever know. You're talking about hurting the community further to desensitize people from making content when the reality is that people are already there knowing that Valve only selects from a few in most cases. I'm not even sure what your point is anymore. Are you trying to say that Valve needs to tell skin makers to go heck themselves from now on? I feel like there may be a language issue going on here and maybe your words aren't meaning what you think they are (and I'm sorry if thats offensive but this is reading very strangely to me).

    Overall I enjoyed it quite a lot and it really got me craving further Half-Life games. But non-VR ones.
    Don't get me wrong I loved the VR and seeing the Half-Life universe from my perspective was amazing. I loved exploring and searching for items in VR and shooting is always cooler in VR.

    Sounds like Gabe is pushing to relocate Valve to New Zealand, or at least part of it. By the sound of it, seems like a long-term but temporary solution because of COVID, as “work from home is causing depressed productivity”.
    Also, in entirely Valve fashion, they might just make a new VR headset “because Index can’t keep up with demand” 😅
    Gosh, personally I’d jump on the occasion before Gabe could finish the sentence, I’ve always wanted to see NZ and considered moving there as well, but could never find a job I could apply for from outside, and I felt it was too far of country to go and do what I’ve done moving to the UK, starting anew and from the literal bottom.
