60 mins of Game Dev advice from 60 speakers at FlashMindMeld

A month or so ago David Fox contacted me asking if I’d be willing to submit a 60-second recording, answering the question “What makes or breaks a great flash game?“. Apparently 59 other speakers were also on-board. So I figured with those kind of odds at least the listeners could have a giggle at my “speech” and move onto something more inspiring. So I agreed.

David put a butt-load of work into the event. Collecting all the samples, organising everything and putting the site together. And today it’s finally all live! You can listen to some great snippets from the likes of Adam Saltsman, Tom Fulp, Edmund McMillen, Rob James, Stephen Harris and a load more. And when you’ve exhausted all of their brilliance you’ll find me. Apologies in advance for sounding like a teenager sniffing glue. You’d never have guessed my Dad was a radio DJ and my Mum a singer. Voice talent skipped my generation :) (I got the geek strain instead, so a fair trade)

Hopefully David will run the event again, with a new question and maybe another set of 60 speakers, as the concept is a great one. And of course thanks to Ilija for pixelating me. I think. (I do actually have a neck tho!)

    Cool… But do you know what would be nice (and very useful)?
    If you could download the transcription of the tips, because
    some developers have weird accents (because they’re from everywhere)
    and we cant understand some parts…

    As the organiser (contact details on the mindmeld web site), perhaps he can put a “call out” to those who spoke. I know I don’t have a transcript personally, guess I’m probably not alone.
