3 Gamedev Ideas


Improve your game before marketing it.

Let’s say you’ve shown it to a few people and they all give you the same feedback.

If you show it to more people, you’ll only get more of the same response and it won’t help you at all.

Fix it before getting new eyes on your project.


Making a game is about people.

Everything you do in a game is meant to make the player feel something.

Which is why I believe empathy is one of the most important skills to develop as a gamedev.

The most complex technology and the best looking art don’t matter if the game isn’t built with the player’s experience in mind.


Don’t write words directly in your graphical assets.

It’ll make localization harder.

Until next week,
