No David Cage You Can't Steal My Technique For Making Emotional Games


FAQ ( Frequently Asked Questions ) for StevenHarmonGames

Why doesn't my ninja watermelon cyborg cactus love me?
I will tell you why your ninja watermelon cyborg cactus doesn't love you; your ninja watermelon cyborg cactus doesn't love you, because your ninja watermelon cyborg cactus loves me; you are out of the picture, and I'm sorry this is the way you had to hear it.

I found an Easter egg in your game Susie with a page that has a drawing of a turtle named George and next to that it says Monkey Scrotum; why have that in there?!
Monkey Scrotum he he he...
That really doesn't answer my question.
No comment.
Hey I'm the one who asks the questions around here that should be answered!
Just because your text is bold doesn't mean anything about who is in charge here.

ಠ_ಠ... OK

May I ask. What Really is this business?
None of your business.
Just kidding. Sorry if you were offended; I make video games.
See I'm not a bad guy BUT I'AM…

Hype ( The promotional kind not the needle kind )

First things first making games is something that takes time, and when I speak of time here's an estimation of how long it will take you or me to make a game 0.001 - 5
Notice I didn't put any more description on the estimation values in seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, or years; that's because art shouldn't be rushed with deadlines of any sort, so when people keep on asking for games that are highly anticipated games to come out sooner remember that the developers are under a lot of pressure to deliver, so when you are rushing them they will hurry and make a worse game, so don't do that. Give the developer time to make their game. Games should wait to announce when the game is around 90% percent finished, because if they announce a cool trailer when the game is nowhere close to being finished people will go through some stages of many different emotions...

Stage 1: Super Excited / Asking tons of frequently asked questions ( This is good )
Stage 2: Rea…

Should Video Games and Current events mix?

7 hours ago the team who are working on Watch Dogsa truly awesome looking game that I' am going to buy in the future added a photo to their page; that simple change made a lot of homophobic A$$@&!^# respond, as well as reasonable people; all I know is there is a lot of controversy on the matter.

Here are some screenshots of the comments (without the names or pictures of the people who posted them)

Do you think current events and games should mix, because I think they should; The game is about questioning are freedoms and I think this ties very well into the games theme, and its good for advertisement just saying; there are people behind the game that have opinions, thus I think its great that Ubisoft has shown what they believe in and all I can say about this is Damn Right I Support It, and at the end of the day the moral is there are more reasonable people who are calling out the stupid ignorant people of the past on their uneducated stupid opinions. Gosh how I love America a…

What makes a good game?

Recently I have been asking myself one question in particular and that question is What makes a good game? I've been doing a lot of research (playing video games), and the recipe isn't simple; good games have their own motives when it comes to the game being good, so I just split those good games types into categories.

Category 1 : The choice game ~ Examples : Skyrim / Stanley Parable / Tetris ~
A game that involves a lot of interesting choices for the player to make that have an affect on the games outcome, because isn't that why games are interactive?

Category 2 : The pretty game ~ Examples : Dear Ester / Fez / Proteus ~
A game that is beautiful visually with its important audio counterpart, and even if there isn't much happening you still enjoyed it.

Category 3 : The game that makes you think ~ Examples : Anti Chamber / Limbo / Morrowind ~ A game that makes people think is one of the rarest game types out there, because it takes a clever developer to make a clever g…
