Making games and selling them to publishers?

Working in the game industry is surely interesting. Especially pitching to publisher may seem scary to many and there are a bunch of legends circling around.

This video gives a nice compilation of stereotypes of the big game companies. I think the logo of Janka is cool 😛 Anyway, the company behind this video – Kixey seems to have quite nice jobs webpage. They do seem to have some attitude there.


Chrono Trigger Coming Soon!

I just noticed that Chrono Trigger is coming soon to iOS! I remember reading something about the eventual release somewhere, but the release date is coming close. For those who don’t know what Chrono Trigger is, I just have one thing to say – Shame On You! The game is one of the best RPG games ever made (not counting FFVI & FFVII for example). It includes everything a nerdy guy can want – time travel, parallel universes, different endings, a frog man. For those who have no idea, I suggest checking out the wikipedia article. The rest of you, here is the soon-to-be-released-trailer (for iOS):


ps. I just bought myself the full special edition of Indie Movie. I have high hopes for this thing 😉

2011 IGF Student Showcase Winners

The Independent Games Festival has announced their Student Showcase winners. A more comprehensive article can be read from GameSetWatch, so I don’t have to post the same things myself 😛

However, the games looked really cool from the trailers. Especially the E7 (the music and the fluid-like surface was a nice idea) , Paperplane (There was just something nice, calming and childhoodish to it) and Solace (not just a regular space shooter, but with music element added to it!) seemed to have a nice interesting atmosphere in them. I would really love to get my hands on them 😀 A big thumbs up for the guys, you have made something awesome!
