I go indie

It's just the beginning. I'm starting a new turn in my professional life : make an entire game alone ! is it sound crazy ???  Programming included of course :) I think about it since a very long time. I want to make a game like a painter in its workshop, no huge team (no team at all), no mass of money, but ideas !

It's a risky goal. Very hard to reach ! I'm not sure to make something interesting. But life isn't about certitude.

 I stopped my contract with ubisoft for one year. So let's go !

with your talent, everything is possible!

Kevin Le Moigne said...

Awesome!

It's inspiring how you moved from 3D ,to concept art to art direction and now i m sure your game will be great too.

Hope you'll share some news about it.

Wow, epic! Good luck and keep us posted on how it is going :)

Tom Scholes said...

I admire your courage :)
Good luck, I think you'll do wonderfully.

Finn Clark said...

Good for you man. I hope it all goes well!

Adam Temple said...

Whoa! That's amazing! I wish you the best experience! How is Montepeller? I remember seeing job postings there...

good luck!

Thanks all !

Tom > Basically I don't like risky experiences ! I hope this one will be a good experience. I have certitude about juste one thing : I'll learn ! So just in case everything goes wrong it'll be not the worst investment :)

Adam > Montpellier is a fun place. The weather is warm with plenty of sunshine. The old city center is very nice. In fact, Montpellier is one of the nicest cities in France for living, the sea, rivers etc ... and if you can work with the team of Michel Ancel it'll be better ! ;)

soon as I can, I will give you some news ! :)

Good luck! Sounds like a great project. I wish more games were made these days with smaller teams and less money, it allows for more creativity and you don't have to worry about making the game bland to make sure it sells enough to recoup your investment.

Whoa, I must admit that was really something. Wishes you all the best man! I look forward playing that game. :D

Sounds really great! Best of luck to you!! With your talents and power of imagination everything is possible. But don't underestimate the immense amount of time needed to finish a game. I think the hardest part is the final walk after finishing the playable prototype. I wish you all the patience you need to get it there!!

Do you already know what programm language you want to use?

Hydropix said...

Thanks Martin. You are absolutely right ! And I have to keep a reachable goal.
I use Unity 3D and C#.

Martin said...

Sounds very good to me! I can't wait for your first concept paintings!! :)

Ben Mauro said...

wow dude! Best of luck!

Hydropix said...

Thanks Ben ! :)

We are a bunch of guys to be super excited over here, waiting for some teaser !

Hydropix said...

I'm still working !!! :) I hope to finish next summer. 3 years of hard work... I'm like a chrysalid - hidden for professional mutation.

Oui, ça avance ;) On peut l'apercevoir brièvement et dans de mauvaises conditions ici : http://languedoc-roussillon.france3.fr/2014/03/09/montpellier-les-createurs-de-jeux-video-independants-ont-le-vent-en-poupe-429307.html
