You may or may not care, but I am a contestant on season 2 of "The Next Game Boss," a show run by IGN. The episodes starting airing some time in January, at which point I will post them here. If you go watch the last season, you'll be misled because it's nothing like how this season went. Basically I brought a game and competed with others for who had the best game.

Unfortunately, the game I competed with was not written in Java, I used Unity. Smiley

I will, however, post some links to it sometime in the future for your playing pleasure.

Good luck! I can't wait to see it


Episode 1 of The Next Game Boss, for those curious, also helps say what it is and what happens a littl bit.  At least for how it happened for season 1. I wonder how it will change.

I watched the first season and well... This show is absolute garbage.  Cranky

You have 2 judges where the only thing they bring is a mullet and average sized tits. Then you have one real judge that is actually in the game developing business who is not an asshole. So if the mullet and blond decide they really like some retarded thing the real developer's vote is useless.

It is not, "give a bunch of teams a week to make a game" its, "make up a bunch of tard events like swapping team members and 2 hour time blocks and then wonder why you get crap back." Oh, and you can only use unity because well...idk. This is not a game jam.

Unless they do something vastly different in the second season, it will be bad. I wish Eli the best of luck (even though it is probably already over) and salute him for doing the show. I might watch it just to see how you did but what do you expect from IGN? 

Go team Eli  Cheesy

Here is episode 1. Note it started with 4 1v1s, so I'm only in one of the first four episodes. That one will be next week (the 29th).

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/6qekBpZt1co?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/6qekBpZt1co?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

As for you anti-reality TV peeps... why would Egoraptor do that? He's already a celebrity. I did this to get eyeballs on my indie game, which is by far the biggest thing you need to get. Your game can be crap, but if 1 million people see it you're going to do better than an unadvertised Shigeru Miyamoto game.

We're putting a Kickstarter up in the next couple of weeks to attempt to channel some of these people to our game. Let's hope it works. Anyway, there was a lot I didn't like about this show, but there was much more I did like. Everyone was respectful and the other devs were awesome. It was cool meeting the 3 judges and they're all now in dialogue with me about my game and future - that's hardly necessary of them. True, the format is kind of crap. With  4 1v1s it means if the second best game happens to be matched up against the best game, they're still considered "last" place. Similarly, allowing games of all ends of the spectrum (least devved was only 2 weeks, most was 5 years!) that is horribly skewed. How can the 2 week game ever possibly compete? And the judges got literally 2 minutes to play each game. Uh wut?

BUT. 300k people watched the last season. I expect more will watch this one. Eyeballs! That is totally awesome, and worth way more than the paltry 10k prize.

I understand why you would participate in that, but honestly... I CAN'T watch it... It is too artificial, there is nothing left for me to believe except the statements of the contestants about their own game. And this can't be good.

As an example I would like to show you a part of the audio. What they do is: when they want to cut down everything to seconds instead of listening to what a person has to say, they just show you some visuals from the game with the voice coming from the off. And then they cut it into pieces and it sounds ridiculous. Like in Simpsons when homer was in TV and they just cut it that way that he said things he never did.

Here it is: http://www.rm2k-tv.de/stuff/IGN_ringRunner.mp3
This from position: 13:41

When you watch RTL on television here in germany you get to see crap like this all day long. The problem is that I don't know which one is worse, this or RTL. People hate MTV for what it did with their program. And this is exactly what it was made up of.

I don't like how the show is designed with all the cuts, effects and blingBling. I think that the people involved might be nice and charming but the way it is pumped up with deception... those shows are mostly smoke and mirrors. I don't like it at all.

First he applied as a pure joke, but since no one else wanted to do this, he got all the internet votes.
He planned on screwing up the whole show and messing with them. He tried, but they cut out everything naturally =D

Well Eli, thats really the definition of "selling-out".
Not that I judge you, I might have done the same for the free advertisement.

That's not selling out.

That's selling.

There's nothing wrong in that, it does not betray any believes or code of honor of game programmers. Do you think Minecraft would be such a hit if people didn't recognize notch as a little celebrity in the game making scene?

I for one salute Eli for putting his name (and face) on the map.

Comparing someone who got famous on his own with this kinda thing is very wrong.

Haha this thread is giving me chuckles. I sort of expected this reaction from other game devs.

I don't feel that I'm selling out, and I don't think you should have that opinion either. Maybe you would personally, but how am I selling out? More or less I did a game jam with TV cameras on. I love game jams. And I like attention. So. It was fun.

I think the most important thing that came out of this is that it really lit a fire under my butt, as well as the other people on the team. We were kinda sorta slowly developing this game in our spare time, without any direct goals or planned release dates. When it was going to be on TV suddenly, I spent the month leading up to it busting my butt and making the game 3x better than it had been before.

And now I've set a Kickstarter date, a release date, and more. I have websites up, Twitter and Facebook accounts, etc. I'd say that's pretty darn valuable for me.

Plus, I got valuable feedback from Jaffe and Chen. That's awesome.

I watched Episode 1.

It was exactly as dumb, trashy, and grating as I'd expected, with anything resembling depth mercilessly edited out.

But there was something quite interesting about watching a developer try to justify their game.  Yeah, we know you've spent a lot of time on it, and you think you're really smart, but seriously, why do expect anyone else to be interested?

I think JGO should use the same approach for deciding if a game is allowed into the 'Featured' section. Wink

Anyway, I known it's too late to matter, but Go Team Eli! Grin

P.S. I always imagined you looked like the orangutan that used to be your avatar pic.

Eli is no sell-out. Notch didn't get famous on his own. No one does. If Minecraft hadn't been reviewed by CynicalBrit and all those guys, it probably wouldn't have gone as crazy as it has.

This show is basically the same thing as getting a review made. The game is in a video with people talking about it, which is put on the Internet.

GO GO, ELI!
