Right back at Indie again…

As you may have read on this blog, I joined King less than 5 months ago, but on the 31 January 2014, the day of my birthday, I decided my experience there had to come to an end and I resigned.

My decision was strongly influenced by the recent events related to their approach to trademark filings and other things which I can’t disclose here, but which showed me the true corporate nature of the company. I’m not saying they’re evil or they’re doing anything much worse than many other big companies, but I don’t feel comfortable with such things and I don’t want to be part of them, so I decided to go my way, easy like that.

Nevertheless I met great developers and great people there and I’m happy I had this experience, but now it’s time to move on.

My dream has always been to run my own games company and to be an independent developer, and even if I already tried and failed that in 2011, now I’m confident enough (or crazy enough) to want to try that again.

In the next months I’ll be working to make that happen, one way or another, and even if it will take a while I’m sure something will happen before the end of this year. ;)

Quoting one of my favourite songs from one of my favourite bands, the “A Day To Remember”, I’m “Right Back At It Again“.

EDIT: people on Reddit seemed to approve my decision, I got tons of words of encouragement words from them, thanks guy, especially to the guy who made this:

You_Quit_King :)

  1. I hope the best comes from the decision you’ve made, and welcome back to the indie scene!

  2. Good luck! I wish I could quit my job and program all day! Unfortunately I have a wife and bills that need to be paid ;)

  3. Let’s that kings castle fall on it self without it’s minions (game devs). Good luck with releasing something this year!
