Jeff Hangartner, the founder of the gaming start-up, Bulletproof Outlaws has been a professional developer of games over the last half a decade. Creator of Pixelation, the 1st Pixel Art Forum and also originator of the Pixel tutorials which have been published in the form of a book. Jeff has always been a pioneer of the gaming industry.
CG Today is proud to present Jeff’s exploration as he shares the whole process of creating a start-up right from day 1. With the belief that gaming development is coming back to its original “one programmer in the basement roots” idea, Bulletproof Outlaws is chronicling every step of its start-up process from strategies, to marketing, setting goals and outsourcing, successes and failures. The aim is to help other developers who have ideas but are intimidated by the whole start-up process and are not sure how to go about it.
Hi, everyone! My name is Jeff Hangartner and I'm a Canadian game developer who's documenting the journey of starting up Bulletproof Outlaws, a videogame studio, from scratch. Over the last 60 days, I've gone from taking a business course to being halfway through development of our first game. We plan to finish this one soon and begin work on the next as soon as possible, documenting it's development as well, and from now on you can read my exploration at CG Today – Your News Channel. I hope you find it interesting, inspiring, and useful!
