Re: Transparency in crowdfunding: The real cost of making indie games

But the problem you're discussing about highlights a point: not everyone reads the campagne description well enough. Someone who is going to write an article about kickstarter campagnes and the required budget really should have done so, but the regular people might miss these informations as well. ...

Re: Updated Kickstarter: Paypal support incoming and surprises for backers this week!

In my opinion, it was more about credit cards... I just decided a while ago to use a virtual, prepaid credit card as well (even though I'd be much more comfortable with a different payment option). On the one hand because I'm impatient as well. On the other hand I did a bit of research. I once paid ...

Re: Updated Kickstarter: Paypal support incoming and surprises for backers this week!

Europe and a splitted continent due to the cold war? How many europeans said the same thing to you before? And if "almost nobody has [a credit card] in eastern europe" is true, germany is then an eastern europe country? And if the size matters, I'd be really interested in what's used most ...

Re: Updated Kickstarter: Paypal support incoming and surprises for backers this week!

I don't love backer's exclusive information, not everyone have a credit card... Update yourself to the 21st century and get one, then. I'm sorry, but the credit card issue is not related to the 21st century. Some folks just prefer other payment methods. In some countries (the USA should be an examp...

Re: Controllers Debate

In my opinion, controlling a character with a gamepad feels better, but in some games, using e. g. keyboard and mouse is just better (in most Mobas), and in other games, you wouldn't even consider to use a gamepad to controll your character (turn based games, strategy games, ...). Ok, maybe my expl...

Re: References to other (Rare) games...

But this thread is not only about references to other rare games, as there already were references to entirely different games. DarkTone already described an example found in Donkey Kong Country 2.

Re: Controllers Debate

Regarding Fire Emblem: I can't see where I stated anything contradictory. What I tried to say was: you don't control your characters in Fire Emblem the same way as you're controlling the characters in, for instance Secret of Mana or Terranigma, aren't you?

Re: Controllers Debate

As Nanirourou stated already: there is no overall truth regarding the current input device debate. Gamepads have, as already stated, much less buttons, analouge input, so they are easier to use, and modern ones have good, comfortable shapes. The keyboard and mouse combination has benefits like more ...

Re: References to other (Rare) games...

Copyrithed material shouldn't be an issue for making references to other games. A blue backpack laying around somewhere in the game can hardly be copyrighted, since it's just a generic blue backpack. Magicka, as an example, had so many references to other games and movies ("a cross in the swamp...

Re: A Pixel Artist Renounces Pixel Art

@Rückkoppler: A very interesting video series, even though I already heard about one or another principle described (e. g. Squash and Stretch). But in game developments, there are some problems if you want to apply these principles. If a character is controlled by the player, you have to minimize th...

Re: A Pixel Artist Renounces Pixel Art

The article is very good and contains many informations related to pixel art, e. g. pitfalls (different pixel sizes) and misconceptions (more colors/higher resolution != better). Absolutly worth a reading.

I'd like to know what you think about new games with a focus on pixel art, like .
