AMAZE 2014 Joburg: Hypertalks


A MAZE 2014 in Johannesburg was as usual a mind-blowing event. Gathering indie game developers from all around the globe to our humble city, this the third A MAZE marks two years from the day I discovered game dev as a possible career choice, during A MAZE 2012.

There were many many great things at this A AMAZE, meeting amazing people, listening to amazing things come out of their amazing minds. All of which can be found on the A MAZE Youtube Channel. A week’s worth of amazingness.

Here however, I want to show you the Hypertalks – talks by amazing people to show you that 5 minutes is all it takes to get you thinking. A MAZE had just released these videos (I had shaky iPhone shot versions which sucks, these are much better)

My favourite one is David Hayward‘s one where he plays Super Hexagon while talking about how it’s like his (other) favourite hobby 🙂

Here they are! Enjoy!


XBOXZA Podcast ep2: The Indie Episode

The guys at the XBOXZA Podcast asked me to join their Indie episode, and it was tons of fun! We chat about things like what it takes to make your own game, what should you study and use to develop your own game, and generally our experience in indie game dev.

I shared a bit of my own story in how I started walking this path of passion (In service of fun since 1999), what I did to get past the daunting learning of programming, as did my fellow GameMaker comrade-in-arms Julian Prichard and Michael De Jager.

Enjoy it! I did! 🙂
