Jeff Hangartner – Revealing the Path Less Travelled in Video Game Industry

Jeff HangartnerJeff 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.

I’m still doing the grunt-work of making animation files out of all my art, so there’s nothing exciting to show today. But I realized when I looked at my site that I actually have a list of links to developers on the side-bar… I threw some in there when I first started the site and then just completely forgot it existed haha I’ve met a handful of developers in the last while so I’ve updated the links on the side to include some more of ‘em: Broken Kings – Met these guys at the Global Game Jam. A group of devs who live in a house together and pump out new games regularly. Lots of behind-the-scenes info!

iCOG Studios – Fellow Calgary devs I met through the Calgary IGDA and survived the GGJ with haha

Juicy Beast – Awesome games and lots of behind-the-scenes info!

Ravenous Games – Creator of League of Evil! Derek and I actually knew each other back when I went by the alias Tsugumo… awesome to see old school people making it in the industry!

Go check their stuff out while I get back to dragging .PNG files around zzzzz…
