Please have a watch of this documentary ‘Indie Game’. A sensational piece on the perils of independent gaming production. One thats draws on the harsh realities of ones own pursuits in a creative sphere. A gift.
It’s on Netflix, too.
As setting my alarm clock on my phone these days is about as useless as a new born baby, I woke up feeling in a not so great mood. I’d planned my day yesterday and the early rise was essential to the days runnings and tasks.
