A new year just arrived. A perfect time to start with new projects and leaving old stuff behind.
For me it feels like a whole new life starts. Kind of the feeling I had when starting my studies and the one I had on the first day of my first job. As of today I’ll call myself an Indie Game Developer 🙂
Till November I worked at Ticking Bomb Games and I really enjoyed the two years there. We build a cool and innovative game called Kartuga which you can check out soon. I learned a lot about multiplayer games and the Unity engine there, knowledge which I definitivly need for the future.
The last two months I took some time to relax and to travel a bit, I even managed to move outside Europe and visited New York for a few days.
So I’m ready to start now! I work together with Nick Prühs, who is a passionate game developer as I am. He worked at Daedalic Entertainment before as the Lead Programmer. Of course I take only the best people to work with! 😉
We will try to develop some nice little mobile and browser games which hopefully sell good enough to develop even more. Till then we’ll spend about half of our time doing some commissional work so we can pay the rent.
Our first project may become Bones, a game we developed at a InnoGames Game Jam this year. We were really amazed with what we managed after one weekend and the team work was great. So we will sit together tomorrow to check if and how we will go on with the project. If all turns out well, you may find the game in a few months in an app store near you!
But it won’t be the only thing we’ll develop this year. If you have a great idea but need developers to realize it or if you are a game developer and just want to discuss some ideas, don’t hesitate to contact us. Furthermore we are urgently looking for a 2D artist who is able to give our games great unique graphics.
So, yes, there are some new projects coming up this year. But with a lot of effort and a bit of luck I am sure that everything will turn out well. Wish me luck!
