I'm a college student and indie developer bent on gaining the skills I need to make my dream games a reality. School was not doing much for me so I decided to teach myself, and so far I'm learning a lot more this way. Check out everything I do at www.yotesgames.com

Another week flew by and somehow I spent most of it in planning/prepping mode instead of programming crunch. One link led to another and I ended up researching marketing techniques, storytelling tips, Lets Plays of competitor's games, game design breakdowns, and tons of RPG reviews. All while comparing what I saw with the notes, documents, and files I have open for Battle Gem Ponies.

Every part of me so badly wants this game to be perfect. Seems like I've become addicted to double checking my work before it's even finished. Time to fix that. This next week has to be ALL gamedev. One by one I have to knock out bugs and add in features.

But thanks to this past week of knowledge binging, I can go in knowing exactly how high the bar is. Take a look at this week's blog to see how I intend to counter BGP's potential shortcomings and how I think it'll manage to stand next to some pretty established RPGs.

Yes it's a big move which I recently took the plunge into. Just 2 months ago I opened up a studio here and have learned a heck of a lot from the business-side and others. I acquired government, business bank and investor funding to kickstart my indie studio. Feel free to PM me if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Shane
