Air Merc – A game in development
I’m a hobby game developer and I’ve been creating casual games for a few year.
This is my way of giving something back to the gamedev community.
On this blog you can follow the development of Air Merc.
I usually break all rules in game development, I don’t do design documents, I don’t make detailed plans, why you may ask? Simply because I spend about 1h per day on gamedev that’s my budget, this means that I need to make games and finish them. So I do simple games and I try to fail fast and learn from my mistake.
So this is a guide for other hobby game developers. It will focus on game design and other tricks I’ve learnt along the way (so no code examples, no tutorials).
PS. I’m not a blogger, I’m not a developer, I’m not a designer, I just create games because I have a PASSION for it!
The goal is to add weekly posts, let’s see if I can achieve that
