Consistency is the key to success. 2017-02-27 Newsletter

 

New from the Blog…

People are going to forget about you. They’re going to forget about your games, your art, your programming, and you.

Pretty terrifying right? No one wants to hear that. Sorry for being so harsh, but you’re not doing anything to remind them who you are.

That’s why you need to be consistent. Consistency is the key to being successful in anything, not just video game development.

Let’s start at the top…(click here to read the full blog post).


What’s Garrett playing right now?

Hidden Folks

First of all, I’m totally in love with the art. It’s simple in that it inspires me, a non-artist, to try and draw the art for my next game, but also so good that it shows the artist is clearly skilled and practiced at their craft.

I’m also super impressed with the game play in that I find it very calming. Great for people like me who have anxiety and generally freak out about literally everything.

I would be lying if I didn’t say that on rough days I sneak away to the bathroom to play Hidden Folks for a few minutes.

It’s basically a search-and-find type game, like Where’s Waldo or I Spy, but the sound effects are amazing and the art is perfect and I’m just really really into it right now. I can’t say enough good things about it.

I’m playing it on iOS but it looks like you can get it for various platforms.

What’s Garrett working on right now?

I actually have nothing to report on this because I’ve been 100% focused on the website, my blog posts, and this newsletter. Don’t worry though…I’ve recently been fooling around in Blender and Unity and I will be working on some gamedev very soon. Perhaps next week as this week I will be traveling for my day job.

Catch you on the flip-side!

Have a great week.
