Indie game developer says reviewers should make their own game

Posted on Saturday, October 17 2009 @ 06:23:44 CEST by


Dan Marshall from independent game developer Zombie Cow called out journalists on their hypocrisy, suggesting all game journalists should develop a game so they can experience how hard it is. More info at Bit Tech.
"As a developer I think you're slightly more understanding of the process involved, but as a gamer you know whether or not you're having a good time," Marshall said.

"I think all games journos should be forced to make a game somehow, see how they get on. It gives you a more rounded perspective."

"I pitched the idea of some articles to PC Zone magazine, and wound up doing a 10-part series about what it’s like to learn to code" and suddenly have to design gameplay elements, making sound effects, and balancing weapons and stuff....As a gamer, I always assumed that sort of thing was relatively simple, so it was a fairly harsh lesson."
