Extra Credits
« on: September 25, 2012, 02:00:27 PM »
Extra Credits is a show that tackles different topics in gaming and game development from a very different angle that you are usually used to. They offer some insight and very useful information for game developers and those who want to become such. http://www.penny-arcade.com/patv/show/extra-credits

I highly recommend the show as secondary educational material (even though you can also watch it for entertainment value, but not all episodes might resonate with you in that case).
Check out Daygames and our games:

King of Booze      King of Booze: Never Ever      Pet Bots
Drinking Game for Android      Never have I ever for Android      Pet Bots for Android
Drinking Game for iOS      Never have I ever for iOS      Pet Bots for iOS
Drinking Game on Steam

I personally found great insights in the series and it allowed my to think quite deeply on how one designs a game and what makes it good.

I specifically liked the continuous idea that games may become an art form. It's true, there are really games that have more art than entertainment value.

IMHO, that is exactly what Final Fantasy 13 felt like to me.  More art than fun from playing.
Current Scripts:
Heretic's Moving Platforms

Current Demos:
Collection of Art and 100% Compatible Scripts

(Script Demos are all still available in the Collection link above.  I lost some individual demos due to a server crash.)

"MagnaCarta: Tears of Blood" for Playstation 2 had this effect on me.
