Amid the photos of old games consoles and soul-crushing stick-people memes, there are occasionally some very good things to be found on
. This (old, but
) 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.
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
for everything you might need.)
