This is our super fast 7 question interview with HECer the developer of Light And Dance VR! *Please feel free to leave a comment down below if you have an idea for a future question!
How did you get into game development?
It started with a school friend of mine developing games, back then his graphics were not eye candy, so I helped him and improved the graphical aspects of his games.
After a financial crisis on his side, I decided to make my own games. The hard thing was to choose which ideas were worth making real 😆
Since then I decided to make my own projects from the beginning to the end, graphics, sounds, music, software engineering and yes I love it! I did a lot of projects for mobile and VR😃
What software do you use to make your games?
Unity is a great Engine (in my opinion). It makes it so easy and fast to write and create prototypes. I use Unity in combination with Microsoft Visual Studio for the coding part 😃
I use also some 3D-Programs like 3D-Coat for the 3D-Designing parts.
What hardware do you use to make your games?
If you could choose only one “item” that makes development easier what would it be?
My brain 😆 Just kidding, maybe Unity as a development tool, maybe a fast PC…
Name one quote that motivates your development!
I don’t have special quotes to offer but:
Failing and learning is the path to success.
They said it isn’t possible, then one day someone came up and just did it because he didn’t know it was impossible.
Stay passionate and move forward while motivating others!
Challenge yourself as much as you can!
Any books (or guides) you would recommend to new game developers?
Hmmm, I don’t have one for you… The internet is a great source!
Make yourself your own tasks and try to achieve them when you start with coding. Challenge yourself as much as you can! Get in contact with other developers. To master something you need to have invested a lot of time, be prepared to be motivated to achieve it! 😉
Lastly, your advice to new game developers!
Everyone out there who want to achieve a living from developing. This is really hard to achieve on your own! I think you have to be very passionate about it and extremely motivated to just get the work done.
Start very early with creating and publishing games, developing them from the beginning until the end! This is really important, because: Every finished game is something you can show to others, it has value! Publish early at the beginning of development. Get a lot of constructive criticism!
