This has been a week focusing on game development, specifically Ludum Dare, an incredibly popular event that brings developers from all around the world together to create amazing games in a very short amount of time. Mike Kasprzak, one of the original organizers of this amazing worldwide event, graciously took some time out of his very busy schedule to talk to me about Ludum Dare.
According to a recent survey of game developers, the industry is seeing a slow but steady shift away from console development towards PC and mobile games:
“Thirteen percent of respondents called themselves current PS3 developers, and just 12.4 percent planned their next game for the PS3. The Xbox 360 only does slightly better: 13.2 percent for now, and 14 percent for the future. (Eleven percent of the devs polled said they're making games for the next-generation PlayStation 4 and the "Xbox 720," or whatever Microsoft ends up calling the 360's successor.)
