Bad Feedback is Good

If you want to improve your game you must start searching for criticism. If you keep asking your players: “What’s wrong with our game? How can we make it better?” you’ll hear brilliant ideas. You will most likely hear negative feedback (and bad language) – but you’ll hear positive ideas as well. If the feedback is presented in a harsh manner ignore how it was said and listen to what is being said. Put a word filter on – if necessary – but be sure to get the point of the message. If somebody mocks your game without any arguments just ignore the comment and move on, there’s nothing good to get stuck on useless junk. Remember: Don’t take negative feedback personally, the idea of the feedback is for you to improve your game.

Continue improving. The best feedback is criticism. Ask for it.

If you have ideas on how to improve, please feel free to suggest.

  2. […] Similarly… it’s almost impossible to answer to question “How much games can sell” if you cannot tell what actions are you prepared to take to make your game sell. Are you prepared to work and polish your game over and over? Are you prepared to handle all the criticism? Are you willing to spend time on marketing your game? Are you going to have a distribution partner? Are you going to start acting like a professional game producer? Are you focusing on making your players and team members happy, rather than seeking profits only for yourself? Are you going to improve your product rather than hoping for the best? […]

  4. Only lurk once in a while, but what I see is good. The format could use some revamping – its kind of awekward – but then again it could be my crappy work computer / monitor.
