I used to be absolutely terrified of selling virtually anything. But it wasn’t always that way. And it’s weird too, because I grew up in a very entrepreneurial household. As a kid, I would pick fruit off of the neighbors trees and sell it around the neighborhood. I would go door to door and offer to do yard work for $10, and then pay my friend Chad $5 to do the work. My school sent me home with a box of chocolates to sell around the neighborhood for $1 one time, and I realized I could sell them for $3 and keep the difference. So what the hell happened between being a kid and me entering the adult world? Where did all of this mental blockage and anxiety kick in? Why was something that used to come so natural for me suddenly one of the hardest things in the world for me to do? It took a lot of work, and a deep dive down the rabbit hole to discover the answer, and I’ll take you along on the journey with me. When I tried to sell my first piece of software online, I was … [Read more...] about Do You Ever Feel Guilty Or Scared Of Selling Your Game?

All Xbox One X Enhanced games - whether they're exclusive or multiplatform, current or backwards compatible, available now or coming soon (like Cyberpunk 2077, pictured above) - are guaranteed to look fantastic. It's all made possible by the world-class hardware in the Xbox One X, which can boost in-game graphics to previously unseen levels only rivaled by high-end PCs. What Enhanced actually means can vary wildly from game to game, but usually you're looking at 4K output and/or HDR capabilities as a bare minimum. You'll often get plenty of performance bonuses to boot, including graphical upgrades like better lighting and shadows, improved textures, increased detail at distance, and more. Some games like The Witcher 3 and Monster Hunter World also give you the choice between maximum resolution or the highest, smoothest framerates (as the two modes are often a 'one or the other' deal).The best upcoming Xbox One games for 2018 and beyondThere are over 100 Xbox One X Enhanced titles, and … [Read more...] about Every Xbox One X Enhanced game
Morgan Jaffit is the founder of Defiant Development , a Brisbane, Australia-based independent game developer and the creator of Hand of Fate and Hand of Fate 2 . I’ve been thinking a lot about what it costs to be a developer these days. Not merely the cost of running a team (although I think about that a lot), but the cost of putting your work out in public, and what that means in the modern era. [ Content warning: The post contains many actual abusive tweets.] I attended my grandfather’s funeral last week. Like me, he was a visible figure in his industry, although he was a harness racer, and I’m a game developer. He worked for 60 years training horses, racing them and working with his family to do the same. Five hundred people attended his funeral, all of them people he’d touched through his life. People whose horses he’d trained. Friends from the country town he lived in. Neighbors to whom he dropped off fresh eggs each day. Punters who had … [Read more...] about When abuse becomes the cost of doing business
