Quick ‪#‎RealityCheck‬ for the peeps who think indie development is a piece of cake. My 2 cents: team up with the right people – skills+execution (avoid ‘idea guys’), give a lot of freedom, make decisions based on part guts/part rationality, pivot if you’re stuck, cut drama early (constructive criticism is good – destructive primadonnas are poison to a team) and jam like crazy. MOST IMPORTANT: Scope. Hence the jamming…if you know how to jam then you know how to scope. ‪#‎EverydayIsJammingDay‬

This post was inspired by this Rolling Stones article and previous experience with drama queens as team mates. Team VRUnicorns is a blast as we are all jammers doing this for the gamezzzz!
