Amid the photos of old games consoles and soul-crushing stick-people memes, there are occasionally some very good things to be found on Reddit. This (old, but still relevant) video lecture by Nicklas Nygren (AKA Nifflas) is one of them. He created Knytt, NightSky, Saira, and many more of your favourite indie games, and in this nearly hour-long lecture for the IT University of Copenhagen, he speaks about his history in game development. Go watch!

Although the lecture's fascinating in its own right - if you enjoy Nifflas' games or indie games in general - there's a wealth of tips here for developers to absorb. So if you're thinking of creating a game, or you're a year into making that epic 100-hour RPG you probably won't ever finish, be sure to give this video a watch. (Then head here or here for everything you might need.)
