Documenting the Game - A Solo Development Interactive Documentary Series

In this kickoff to a new series, I lay out the goals and expectations, as well as discuss the major topics that I plan to address over the course of time. This is not a typical tutorial series but rather a new, semi-interactive effort to help address the questions and issues surrounding building a game on your own, without a team by going through the process myself and documenting it.

If anyone else is doing a series (be it video or blog), I’d love to partner up to trade insights that we could jointly share with the community.
