14:00-14:30Cellar Vault Games: Char koay teow in a candy shop.Benny & Eshan, Producer & Game Asset Artist, Cellar Vault GamesMaking games is at best not a straightforward pursuit; you’ve got to consider who you’re making the game for and try to reconcile that with what kind of game you actually want to make. Throw in managing a team and finding ways to make certain things work in a game engine, and the process becomes predictably more complicated. Furthermore, in a market that’s more concerned with shorter digestible games that run on smartphones, deciding to produce a game with a much more serious pace that runs on PC is a less-than-common course to take. So that’s just what Cellar Vault Games decided to do.
Benny and Eshan (two of the four developers part Cellar Vault Games) relate the process of deciding to and continuing to work on The Plight (a first-person horror experience), The Long Road Ahead (a short creepy-pasta style game) and their learning experiences along the way.
