Nobody said game development was easy, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be fun. semiwork studios, the indie team behind the roguelike shooter Voidigo, has released a minidoc that shows how three animators came together to make their vision a reality. The video, now streaming on YouTube, is an inspiring behind-the-scenes look into the game’s creative journey, from early prototypes to popping the champagne as it goes live on early access and watching player reactions.The Making of an Indie Game - Voidigo
The video may be focused on Voidigo, but you’ll find that many of its themes are universal. Throughout its four-year development, the game went through various iterations and phases. Viewers will get a glimpse at late-night coding sessions (with plenty of punchy conversations), see the team’s makeshift recording booth, and get to meet some of the freelancers the core three-person team brought on to make it all come together. And yes, you’ll see lots of coffee. It’s a fun and enlightening viewing experience for anyone interested in game development, whether or not they’re familiar with Voidigo.
Voidigo is the debut title from Swedish indie developer semiwork studios. It’s a roguelike shooter where players take on massive boss monsters. These big, beefy beasts rampage throughout stages in epic confrontations; they’re not waiting around the exit doors to show themselves. It was released in early access on Steam in February.
