Lost Laughs in Leisure Suit Larry

Why was this classic adventure game so funny in the 80's, and why did it stop being funny?

 

Good Robot Dev Blog

An ongoing series where I work on making a 2D action game from scratch.

 

Steam Summer Blues

This mess of dross, confusion, and terrible UI design is the storefront the big publishers couldn't beat? Amazing.

 

Batman: Arkham Origins

A breakdown of how this game faltered when the franchise was given to a different studio.

 

The Opportunity Crunch

The Truth About Piracy

What are publishers doing to fight piracy and why is it all wrong?

 

Trusting the System

How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?

 

What Does a Robot Want?
