Yeah, I feel like we learned a bunch of this too. Our first game was a hit, leading us to think that putting in even more effort for the second game would lead to a bigger hit. Unfortunately that game was a massive failure, which especially hurt since we spent so much more time on it. Figures like $153 aren't a joke!

What we're doing to solve it: ship small, free games that take a week or two to build and hope they get word of mouth. If they fail, no big deal, we learned something from making them and they contribute to our overall portfolio. If they succeed we don't make any money (since they're free) but they do generate a lot of goodwill and people notice and remember us for in the future.

We're trying something different with the next game by releasing a trailer early: http://contranoid.com. Let's see what happens. Adopting a more experimental approach feels more comfortable, either way.
(Initial Draft: Feedback welcome, revisions likely) Let's dream for a moment about sustainable game development. Game development is inherently unstable. Technology, markets, profit margins and teams shift regularly. Any of these can quickly destroy a previously comfortable business.

The giant cannibals "speak" in a language of whole-body flashes that scientists are just now starting to understand.

Story
Tagline
Designer, engineer & unicorn. Co-creator of Handcraft. Moderator at UX Stack Exchange.
Introduction

“In most people’s vocabularies, design means veneer. It’s interior decorating. It’s the fabric of the curtains and the sofa. But to me, nothing could be further from the meaning of design. Design is the fundamental soul of a man-made creation that ends up expressing itself in successive outer layers of the product or service.” - Steve Jobs in an interview with Fortune Magazine, 2000

---


Art hides. Art has a meaning, and it hides it, on purpose. Art delivers a message, and that message is hidden, on purpose. It is an art to create art. Art is unusable, by definition.

Design reveals. Design reveals meaning, design reveals a message, design reveals function. Bad design does the opposite: It obscures, it hides. The reason why that almost never makes bad design art is that the subject is supposed to be revealed.
