  • “Know what you’re getting into. Once you get past the thrill of expressing your creativity, you have to deal with setbacks and criticism. Making a game is fun. Publishing it is business.” - Ivan Turner


  • “Make your prototypes look as finished as your game is.” - Daniel Solis


  • “Not all problems have easy, perfect solutions, and you shouldn’t be afraid to try something unusual when all the solutions are messy anyway.” - Teale Fristoe
