I always feel kind of bad for Cliffy when he takes flak for Gears of War, since he’s said so many times that it wasn’t what he was going for.
If anyone on this planet should be INDIE right now I think it’s probably him. The perfect intersection of technical chops and creativity in the games space. I really hope he does well with this new thing.
Part of my approach to the new year and the new business is to try and be more positive about the world. Don’t take so many cheap shots, try not to be as irascible.
In the case of KING.com however I have to make an exception (if only a small one.) The stupidity of game companies being publicly traded aside I have to believe that this IPO will be met with more scrutiny than normal given the landscape of independent developers and valid trademark that have been crossed by this behemoth.
Basically, my reason for creating this is so that gamedevs on Tumblr can find fellow gamedevs. It’s kind of like an easy to navigate directory to find and connect with people who are also working on games.
Don’t be scared to ask or reblog! This is for all game developers on Tumblr! Really. Don’t feel lame. Help me help you~
