The Revolving Door!

Unfortunately when starting any big project with a team of people there will be people who are doer’s and…… let’s just say the other people. Never be afraid of these other people’s opinions and don’t worry wether they are interested in the project or not. Just let them go!!!! We like to call this “The Revolving Door”. The reality is, not everyone will be interested in your project. Actually there will be a lot of people who will hate it and will try to slow you down.

Word to the wise for any new developers, bring people on that want to be a part of your project and are willing to do anything to get it done. How do you determine who’s really in it to win it? Well if you email them and it takes more then a day or two to respond…. let’s just say chances are the project is not at the top of their priority list. Communication on any project is extremely important, especially in smaller teams that work remotely. If any individual cannot communicate their ideas or status on work then “Trust me!” they are not the one you want on your team.

In our experience there are plenty of talented people who are cool and easy to work with. So you should never waste your time on anyone who can’t get the job done. Now for the good part of the “Revolving Door”. Once all those people come in then walk right back out, you will find those few that are interested in what you are creating. For a any new developer this is a huge sigh of relief because you start to realize that your not alone.

Understand this is an extremely open minded industry and there are individuals who want to be part of something new. With that being said, there are different styles and views on games so keep a like minded team that wants to build entertaining games. Keep your eyes sharp, mind open, and you can build a productive team and create some amazing games. Remember its a vision only few will embrace, so grab those few and make that vision a reality. Until next time, keep on keeping on!

Let’s start logging this journey!

Hi All,

Decided to start a blog to track our game dev journey! We have had so many stumbling blocks that I feel it is imperative to share this info with aspiring indie developers. Hopefully we can break ourselves away from the actual development once in a while to keep this thing updated, fingers crossed!
