Prison Architect dev Introversion explains the struggles indie developers face trying to get their games in shops

@DreadedWalrus There is one thing that is certain: there will be one or more of those games that never happens and people lose their money. One or more games that go over budget, or schedule, or where the lead programmer leaves ... never mind the possibility that the game turns out shit. And then the funders will melt down.

We don't know how crowd funding has changed games until these first few are delivered and people who paid are playing them.

I'd settle for being able to complete quests with no bugs in them.

Skyrim: Four patches and Pantea still needs their flute back. I have the flute. I can find Pantea. Nada.

And I don't want to play it for free and be monetised. Make a good game and I'll buy it at the start and then play it. Thanks.

Brian Fargo rips into destructive publisher/developer relationships

Thamuhacha

6 years ago

Maybe we can have an article from a publisher complaining about all the badly managed dev projects and missed milestones that create grief for thousands of companies and publishers?

Probably not, when it's far more fun to lazily equate "publisher" with "satan" than to present any form of balanced view.

FFS, as if all developers are salt-of-the-earth good guys, bravely doing their best to create great art and not make any money.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Thamuhacha

For a CGI trailer, that looked rubbish.

The Oblivion bloke's involvement is encouraging. But Salvatore has been responsible for SO MUCH generic high fantasy schlock that I cannot get that excited. And McFarlane's gaming track record is a bit ropey.

Plus Skyrim + Diablo III = lose

Penhalion - I suppose I think of redeeming the cerberus DLC portal as the point where I go "yeah, OK, I'm in" and know that resale will be for a lower price. As long as the choice is still mine.

So I don't mind actually. I tend to hang on to games that are really, really good. Even if I don't play them again. I've still got KOTOR!

FIFA 10 debuts in EA's monster E3 line-up

Thamuhacha

9 years ago

>Fifa10 to look identical to Fifa09, Fifa08

But they don't, do they?

FIFA has gone from being a rubbish football game with more emphasis on menu music and replica kits than gameplay to arguably much better than PES. And while PES still makes horrid mistakes like letting the stupid AI do lunging slide tackles through the back of people when you aren't controlling them, FIFA keeps improving.

And it's the biggest selling game in the world. So fair play to them.

EDIT: and it sells sodding bucket loads. So fair play to them.

Peggle, Resi and CM2009 on App Store

Thamuhacha

9 years ago

Mini-review: Champ man is awful. Probably the worst thing I have bought for the iphone.

Apple should stop restricting apps because they are a bit rude. Instead they should start restricting apps which are practically unplayable because they are hurriedly ported from another OS.

It's poorly laid out, horrible to use, completely unclear and uses very few of the basic iphone interface choices.

It's also badly researched. Ledley King is a right back, Steven Gerrard can only play on the right ...etc

Avoid.

I'd prefer Football manager for iphone ... but never mind.

Anyway, I'm keeping my "Xenon" (Who knew?) until the weather warms up

For what it's worth, having finished Fable 2 and played Fallout for about 4 hours ... Fallout is far and away the better game. By a big, fat mile. Properly deserving of the 10 it got on here IMO.
