The Verbs of Game Development

April 15, 2014

I rewatched Indie Game: The Movie today with a group of young game developers just past alpha on their games. It is a good time to rewatch the movie. Often, alpha is reached with the same sense of relief one might feel when one reaches the end of the flu: glad it’s over, but completely worn out from the effort.

Game development is not for everyone. Our verbs are visceral, particularly in singular form.

  • Create
  • Imagine
  • Dream
  • Panic
  • Cry
  • Throw up
  • Scream
  • Worry
  • Sacrifice
  • Doubt
  • Launch
  • Wait
  • Watch
  • Let go

Not everyone will make it through.
