David Galindo's Blog - How much do indie PC devs make, anyways? (Part IV) It’s kind of incredible how much the gaming landscape has changed in just less than two years. Over a year ago I wrote about my experiences selling the Oil Blue ( Part 1 , Part 2 and Part 3 ), an indie game that was released on the PC back in 2010 and garnered some critical acclaim but less than stellar sales. Since then I’ve worked on two projects, one that was cancelled after more than a half a year’s work, and the second released last October called “ Cook, Serve, Delicious! ”, a management game where you buy equipment and foods to fill your restaurant’s menu and cook for people during the business hours of 9am to 10pm.

Level 16: Game Balance « Game Design Concepts

This word is important, but I fear it is often overused. Like the word “fun,” there are different kinds of balance, and understanding what game balance is and why it’s important is what we cover today. Why are we only covering this now and not earlier (like, say, at the start of the Design Project)? As mentioned earlier, balancing the game is something that is best left until after you have a good set of core mechanics. Balancing a game that is simply not meeting its design goals is a waste of time, and when you change the core mechanics you’ll just have to balance the game again. Games Aren't Art, They're Architecture. One year ago, Roger Ebert wrote a Chicago Sun Times article about how video games “are not and never will be art.”

Games Aren't Art, They're Architecture

Slightly less than a year ago, I myself wrote a blog post about how his assertion forced the gaming industry to take a long hard look at itself and try to figure out how video games fit into the vast, “fuzzy” concept of what “art” is. A year ago, that was a very timely and relevant debate. At the time, there was landscape that saw games learning how to express themselves as pieces of narrative media, becoming more socially acceptable pastimes and possessing academic discourse. The idea of establishing whether or not games should or should not, could or could not be enjoyed as art and what that meant for the industry was necessary.

game design - Accuracy vs distance formula - Game Development

Gajet has already given a number of good reasons why some of these assumptions fall flat, but holds on to the same inaccuracy model: a bounded error in angle. The result still falls off with r^-2, but with a small constant. Say the shooter has a maximum spread of 5°. He has a chance of firing between a 0° and 1° error, but the area of the ring between 4° and 5° is much larger than the area of the ring/circle between 0° and 1°.
