In 2009 Christopher founded Arcen Games, an indie company who have already made a handful of PC and Mac games. As such, his articles on achieving success as an indie developer, and working with the press as an indie both have a lot of weight.
Very recommended reading for anyone interested in that side of the games industry.
That’s not to say that Christopher is just about the business side of things. There are also lengthy articles on game design topics that are well worth reading.
So just what is GameDevBlogs? Well, it’s new, but here’s their spiel about themselves:
GameDevBlogs’ mission is to become the best resource for finding new blogs written by video game developers. Whether famous or unheard of, student or experienced, a developer’s writing will be listed here. If you are interested in finding something new to read, select a blog category, pick a site at random, and enjoy.
Or, as they described it to me in an email, “a site dedicated to listing the blogs of game developers, so inquiring minds can find good reading material more easily.” That seems like a very worthy goal to me, and it’s always great to see new resources (especially meta-resources like this) appear for new and aspiring indie developers. There are a lot of developer blogs out there, so I imagine they’ll have their hands full archiving all of them, heh. Good stuff!
