Being part of an indie game means that the work never stops. Helping to launch a game like Buff Knight takes a near constant hands on approach, talking with the players and utilizing all of your social media contacts to share Buff Knight with the world. While this may seem like something that seems like a chore and not really fun, I don’t mind it all the much. Buff Knight is something that is important to us, something we devoted our heart and soul to in order to make something we wanted to share with everyone. It’s a always exciting to see someone replay back to an email, retweet your tweets or post a positive compliment on youtube.
While these acts of kindness may seem random and not that special, knowing that someone out there enjoys what you helped to make, is a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment unmatched by anything else.
This is work that doesn’t feel like work. This is engaging with a community of passionate and kind gamers. This is working on the weekend, and it feels fine.
