    September Games

    Alright, this is it folks. No more fuckin around, I'M GOING FULL TIME INDIE DEV!

    Yesterday was my last day at my job of 13 years, today I'm launching...

    Follow me on twitter!

    Follow me on Facebook!

    Man, it's been months setting up all the business stuff and whatnot, and now we're finally here on launch day. I know indie dev is difficult as hell to pull of financially, but I think I've got a shot. Especially with the support of all my loyal customers FRIENDS here at TTLG I believe I can do it!

    Oh wow, that's quite a brave move. I know you've got what it takes, but this still came as a bit of a shock. I want to wish you the very best of luck, and I'm looking forward to seeing (and playing) your games!

    Go for an exclusive deal with Epic Games and we'll tear you to shreds. Obvs.

    Seriously, though, all the best with this courageous step you've taken!

    Nice! Best of luck!

    Why 'September Games', might I ask?

    Thanks guys!

    RE: the name. It's mostly just a cool sounding name I think. I like the fall. I also didn't want a name that was too silly or too highfalutin.

    Awesome news henke, congrats. I wish you massive amounts of good luck. I'm actually rather jealous.

    Can't wait for some free keys.

    I wish I could bring myself to be as productive as you are.

    A brave move.

    Do you have any particular plans for what you're going to develop?
    Looks like you have a more fully-featured Stilt Fella in the works.
    Are you going to focus exclusively on smaller, physics-based games like that?

    I also liked games like "A Good One" that have a slight story narrative to it.

    First 2 games will be physics-based arcade games, Stilt Fella and POGOPPL. After that we'll see. I'll probably end up making more stuff in the style of In Search of Paradise, A Good One, etc. I have 10 or so pretty well formed game-ideas I wanna make, and a bunch more half-baked ones.

    Do any of the games you're currently thinking about include VR modes? Or is that the kind of thing that simply takes too much time for too little pay-off?

    I think that he implemented VR mode into one of his games? Can't remember which one though... In Search of Paradise, perhaps?

    He did, and I greatly enjoyed it. I'd understand if he didn't do so now that he's launched his company, though, as providing for VR isn't exactly a sound business model.

    Good news. Remember to eat and sleep every once in a while.

    No VR modes for the ones I'm currently working on, but I do have a few VR game ideas I wanna do later.
