The Take Away: Your source for tips and gaming tricks.
« on: April 07, 2015, 11:03:36 AM »
This is a thread to share any interesting tips that have been passed on from developer to developer, which may prove useful to others. (From newbies to professionals)

Here is one from Derek Yu (creator of Spelunky):
When creating your game, don't get caught up on a certain feature early on that you want to get perfect right away. So many developers get stuck on this feature and delay their process for too long, instead, keep things simple to get a working prototype and add the fancy content later on.

Comment: Man... I have gotten myself stuck on this so many times that I have halted some projects because of it... Spending a great deal of time on one little feature for a prototype that might not even be fun in the end. I really need to listen to this and come back to the polish later.
All my VR games use Steam VR Playmaker Toolkit: http://u3d.as/u20
