Advice: Play your game

This isn’t going to be a major post, but just a small piece of advice to all developers out there. I know it seems simple and obvious, but take time out of development to just play your game.

.

Set up what you think would be the ideal environment to play the game. If its a PC Game, turn off the lights, put in some headphones, and play it. If you see a bug, don’t mark it down, or make a note of it. Just play through. Enjoy your game-enjoy your work.

.

Its a very surreal experience to have your game be at a point where you can see what others will get out of it…feel what other people will feel when they first load it up. Of course, its never going to be a pure experience, because all you can see are the flaws-but try to get it as close as possible.

.

Creating games is such a huge amalgamation of talent and skill-its an art form that involves the technical and the artistic coming together in a way that no other product does. And if you are involved in it, its something to be proud of .

.

Be proud of it.
