That concludes the Carnival edition. Thank people for sending articles. Remember to check out the Carnival of Game Production Headquarters where you can find some more information regarding what kind of articles we are after – basically I want to see fun, inspiring, practical and positive stories that should be somehow related to game production. At least loosely.

The next edition will be hosted here at GameProducer.net in the following months – after I receive roughly 10 suitable stories. Please, feel free to use the submission page to send your articles.

Thanks for your time.
