Quick Q&A

If you could turn the clock back, would you do anything differently?

I will adjust some of the priority of tasks to bring better experience on the public test, and will also spend more time on the media exposure to attract more attention rather than purely focus on the development. What I learned from the Tranzfuser is a more comprehensive awareness of commercial operation, and think more than a game designer but also an entrepreneur.

What made you want to take part in the competition?

Tranzfuser is the one of the most competitive competitions for the young talent in game industry and it can offer a valuable experience in both of game development and business. It is a precious chance to cooperate with the experts from the industry and receive mentoring from them from different dimensions.

Why should the up-and-coming game dev talent of tomorrow apply to Tranzfuser?

This is the best chance in the UK to show your games up and face some realistic challenge to get ready for the future career.

What benefits did Tranzfuser bring to your game dev career?

Tranzfuser offered us a lots of great opportunities to improve our awareness of the commercial world, and provide helpful suggestion to adjust our development plan to ensure our game can surprise our target audience. I really appreciated that I joined this competition and make connections with experts from the industry.

What are you doing now?

I am still working on our games and recently prepare for a future cooperation with a selected publisher. Our team will keep working remotely and we are excited to finish the second boss fight.
