Be an artist. Be unique. Be rad.
Don’t set out to reach the largest audience just because you think that’s what you’re supposed to do.
Set out to make something great, and those that CAN play it… WILL play it.
If making a cross-platform game is what you WANT to do, then do that.
If making a game that only 1 person can play is what you WANT to do, then do that.
The games industry would be much better off if the artists could focus more on what they wanted to do rather than what they were told to do or persuaded to do… and that includes trying to reach the largest audience possible.
Just a quick message to anyone that may feel pressured into making a browser game for the next Ludum Dare, even if you don’t really want to.
Make the game you want… the way you want to make it.
