My Next Game

After a successful twitter poll, where 96% voted yes, I'm going to develop my next game a bit more in the open. Meaning I'll blog and tweet a bit more about it, while it still is in development, even if there isn't much to see yet. So here is the plan:

My next game will be named Business Magnate, a tycoon game with some quite unique features.

I already created a website for it (here), which was quite a bit of work. I wrote all the HTML, CSS, PHP and JS code manually and by hand, and although it is just a single page with a newsletter, it was surprising how much work it is nowadays: You need meta tags, icons, crawler directives, GDPR compliance, responsiveness, accessibility, browser compatibilty and more.

I did a bit of pre-production work already, so that's why there is even a screenshot visible on the website, this is from the actual game already. But there is a lot of work to do in order to make this a playable and fun game, so let's stay tuned.

six comments, already:

hmm… maybe if the game was instead set in the demolition business it could be called Business destroyer.

Would probably easy to have a game mode play like this. Start with a working business and ruin it.

I hope you’re being ironic about calling a Twitter poll successful where you offer to give away free stuff and 26 people say “yes”.

Out of your total Twitter followers, that’s just 4%.

For the record, yes, I want to see your transparent development process. But it won’t get you a sale from me, I just want to copy the things that make you succeed, and avoid the things that make you fail. I don’t want you to fail – like those Youtube videos of people falling off their skateboards, you don’t want them to land painfully on their balls, but it does make it more entertaining.
