Developer Appreciation Week 2017 is coming to a close so this will be the last post from me for DAW2017. Thank you Ravanel Griffon for reminding us about this, or I would have never really known about it, and be able to blog about various developers as a thank you for all they do. For me though I won’t just stop cause a week says it’s over. Developers need all the appreciation they can get. And I intend to talk about them a lot over the months to come, plus helping spread the word of the indie games that I find out there, and try out. While most blogged periodically, I opted to do it daily all because well I had a indie games that needed to be put into the spotlight and to let others know what I’ve been playing in between SWTOR and GW2. I know I didn’t talk a lot about the bigger developers and it’s not cause I don’t appreciate what they do. It’s just this is how the community works. I love playing various types of games, and even when I buy the game I still want to do the game justice by putting my time into it, playing it, and then reviewing here on my blog, but this week gave me the option to talk bout the developer of that wonderful fun game.
Of course though there is another game I did forget to talk about their developers as well. It’s called Stranded Deep, and the development team for this game BEAM Team Games. They are an independent game studio and they are located in Brisbane, Australia. The team consists of two people developing the whole game. So hats off to them as well for working on a game like Stranded Deep, and if you want to know what it is. Well this is the information from their steam page where you can purchase the game.
Take the role of a plane crash survivor stranded somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. Come face to face with some of the most life threatening scenarios that will result in a different experience each time you play. Scavenge. Discover. Survive.
This game has been out since Jan 23,2015 and it’s another early access game in the early alpha stages. Again it has it’s love and hate within the community. Like many games there are a lot of indie games out there that deserve to be brought into the light and let others see how they are. Don’t always believe the negative remarks you read in game reviews. These developers really do put their all into the games they create for us, and it’s the least we can do is show them the appreciation they deserve to have their game showcased in a blog post, or talked about in various ways to bring the awareness to those that want to play these type of games, but don’t know where to look for them. I hope you enjoyed the talks about the various indie and known developers from my side this week, and I can’t wait to start a new series in this blog. Unsure at the moment what it will be, but it will be something. I’m always thinking of ways to improve my blogs, and myself.
