Documentary on Demo Scene

Demoscene is really interesting phenomenon. Many successful game companies have been founded by demoscene people. In my opinion it’s really amazing, what people can do with computers and break their limits. Programming should be more appreciated as a form of art.

This documentary is quite match told by the voices of Hungarian demoscene, but nonetheless gives a good insight into the scene and its members.

Perhaps not to be watched in one 90 minute session, but enjoy it at least in small parts.

Remember to put subtitles on!

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.
