Interesting video about a man's "13 year" development cycle story and the DO NOTs of game design. I think this could be a nice watch for some of us hopeful indie developers wanting to make games. Cheesy

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/2b0tSu0QDQ0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/2b0tSu0QDQ0?version=3&amp;hl=en_US&amp;start=</a>

To be honest though; my personal gut-feeling based opinion though is if the guy took 13 years to make a basic 2d puzzle-platformer, he was probably "going it wrong", either not really taking the project seriously or lacking the maturity or cognitive abilities to do such a task effectively. Of course, he indirectly admits that in the video. I just think it was far worse than what he admits.

That or in his 13 years of development he took several 6 months+ breaks and still bunched it all together at 13 years of development. But, that's just my pessimistic outlook on the story-behind-the-story. I may be wrong.

Hey, it could have been worse, like the guy didn't actually finish the game at all.

If I can have a penny for every time a developer didn't finish a game...

Maybe this plays into what we were all discussing here?

13 years, sounds like a marketing ploy. I bet it took a few months
