We have a thread about bad vidya developers, but what about a thread dedicated to the good ones, few as they may be? Devs that make fun games, care about the community, don't fall prey to political ideas, and those that just make gaym.

I don't recognize any devs who "make good games". Good games kind of just appear and they're always from different developers.

Jonathan Blow is the only dev I recognize who seems to actually understand game design well, but maybe that's because he's the only one who appears and talks a lot publicly. He has issues though, like taking 10 years to finish anything, only making puzzle games, and having this autistic "games are art" mentality. But almost everything I hear him say about games (including completely different games than what he makes) sounds good, it gives me the impression that he thinks about this stuff way more than most people. Put it another way; if I wanted advice to make my game better, he's the one I would want to hear thoughts from.

Terraria devs are cool for releasing free updates for years, but that probably doesn't count because they made infinite money despite being a small team so they never need to make money again. They're also getting more and more cucked as time goes on.

No, it makes them a bad dev. There are other things that make Kingdom Come a bad game too, though.
Kenshi developer Lo-Fi Games. I watched a youtube directory about the development of the game and the guy behind it all Chris Hunt went through a lot of shit to get the game in the state that it's in now. 

Factorio guys too.
Pixel makes good games pretty consistently, said consistency is just a very slow cycle. His biggest fault is getting kiked by a western indie publisher.

The problem isn't always the devs, it's the jewish society that prevents 95% of good game ideas from being made and poisons the remaining 5%. Devs that are bad and don't deserve your money because they support white genocide can still stumble into making fun video games, think shit like tranny hats and Frogun for some recent examples.
Jonathan Blow probably needs that whole "games as art" mentality to put as much thought as he does into games. Someone who thinks games are pure entertainment won't go as deep as he does.
He seems to really, actually care about video games as a medium. A lot of people who "care about video games" just care about building up layers of cope to justify the time they spend playing them. All they really do is defend the status quo.

If we're just talking about game programmers, then Casey Muratori also comes to mind. Casey will readily admit he's not a designer and all of his skill is in programming, but boy is he a step above the average programmer. John Carmack is in this category as well. While we're at it we can throw in Michael Abrash for good measure. These are all people I would trust to write stellar game code, but I wouldn't want them within 30 feet of the design.

Blow can come across as pretentious but he definitely gives a shit about the industry and railing against the insanity that is modern development practices. Web devs are so far down the rabbit hole they don't even realize that running 1,200 'microservices' to push text and media to a database is fucking stupid.

I think you meant to title this thread "Industry personalities I like" because your examples are certainly not people who just "make game" nor are they free from the sin of ideology. You've never heard of all the developers who only develop and there isn't really anything to discuss there.

The vessels being genderless/sexless isn't poz because they were made to be completely devoid of anything physical traits or personality that the infection could latch onto.  The Hollow Knight was made imperfectly and thus became a slave of the infection after he spent enough time containing it within himself.

Shame about the explicit faggotry.  I had interpreted the Nailsmith+Sheo stuff as brotherhood and the Grey Mourner as a masculine character when I played the game.  Even when I learned the Grey Mourner was a woman, I was willing to let that slide because the rest of the game was a rare example of a modern game that just let me play for long periods of time without interruption for story or analogies to mental illness, so I figured the devs weren't fags.

I'm sure Silksong will still be a good game, but I hope the devs can restrain themselves.

Any indie dev who keeps their involvement solely to making and releasing a good game with little desire for fame or injecting their beliefs/views into them. I used to include
>Pixel (Cave Story)
>Derek Yu (Spelunky)
>Kikiyama (Yume Nikki)
as examples of this but Pixel let Cave Story be ported/remade, Derek Yu I'm not sure about (he's the most vocal/public of these three but I haven't spent time reading his blog or anything) and Kikiyama is the most private, almost to obscurity so your opinion may vary. Toby Fox of Undertale fame would be the example of how NOT to be a good developer.

The Atlus JP side cancelled the Vita version (the original native development platform) only months before the game's release on the PS4, which Japan hated as a platform and avoided for the longest time, leading to a disastrous sales flop.
The USA pozzed up the localization, as everyone already saw.

The sales numbers seen way after the fact make me suspect that Atlus was lying about them, since it had literally had flopped and stagnant numbers for over a year iirc, and then magically it suddenly gained 200k, then 400, and then apparently 600k sales after a year without any motivating event or factor, and zero attention from anyone (because again, it was on a platform nobody wanted in Japan, and in the west the localization was pozzed so only trannies were talking about it, and otherwise it was an extremely niche title on a platform which had less sales for weebshit than Vita versions even back then). That kind of shit is quite literally almost unprecedented, and I investigated and saw no reason for that to occur at all.

Eventually the game got released on Switch years later recently, thankfully (even though I personally don't care for the Switch and wish it was on the Vita, but at least Vanillaware actually was able to get on a platform the Japs actually own and use and people buy games for), but unfortunately the localization is still pozzed.
Do you have a source for this? I know Atlus is retarded but this is next level.

He really is a hero. Makes me crack up every time.
Also pic related. And I've read that only the >English< version has the trannylation and the rest of the language options are fine. Apparently. If I remember correctly the Spics and Krauts got a correct translation.
Don't forget, the GrimGrimoire remaster is coming in 2023, too.
Whatever happened to the guy who kept Kojima in check? He doing okay?
The first week's sales for the game was 34K in Japan, which was not good already (Dragon's Crown sold 300K in its first week across PS3 and Vita for reference, and Odin Sphere Leifthraisir sold 100k across PS3, Vita, and PS4 in its first week), and by the second week it was down to fucking 4k per week. It took roughly 2 months to reach 50, and was down to under 3k per week at that point. It eventually ended being recorded by Famitsu sales at 67k physical copies sold in Japan after around 3~ish months of being on the market.
Before that was ever hit, they expected people to believe that this game, which flopped in physical sales sold enough to reach 100K in January when, by that point, it had only reached a little over 50k in physical sales, meaning that around 50% (and later, even more) of the sales supposedly came from digital sales, which is patently absurd in Japan.

https://dengekionline.com/articles/21708/ (article from some of the devs explaining why they think it performed so poorly)

They cut out at least half of their potential audience by cutting out the Vita release (the Vita version of Odin Sphere sold more than the PS4 version as an example, and that was in a time when companies were increasingly shoving more and more shit unto the PS4 at the behest of Sony to try and push it, porting a lot of Vita shit retroactively to it and making formerly Vita-developed games into multiplats)
Japan is the most resistant country in Asia to digital releases and prefers physical vastly. There was a Play-Asia article out there which confirmed the actual percentages from back in 2017/18 or so (only 1-2 years before this shit) where digital vidya releases were only 20-25~ish%  of the share of vidya revenues in Japan, the lowest out of Asia, but I'd have to find the article again, which is a pain since their search function isn't great and their website formats changed multiple times. They're an importer/exporter business which deals with this shit so they have know better than most about this shit, and its their job to be aware of such things, plus they're an actually non-shit and trustworthy company which is rare in this day and age.
Also, the biggest chunk of sales by far for most of vidya always comes in the initial release. This kind of "slow burn" claim is almost unprecedented and almost never happens at all.
What doesn't help either is if you looked on places like twitter or jewtube at the time of the sales claims, the only people you would find on twitter were the trannies (I am not exaggerating, I cared deeply about this game and looked into this shit carefully), and nobody on places like jewtube or twitch, there was no western audience that came out in force for it anywhere, or if they did, they somehow never fucking talked about it anywhere online but it somehow just magically made half a million sales out of nowhere after stalling horribly for months and ending up miserably in terms of physical sales, which again, logically should have comprised the majority of sales in Japan.
Replies: >>175186 >>176539
Oh, and for reference, Dragon's Crown sold over 1 million on PS3 and Vita by 2017. 800K in 2013.
People expect to believe this game that nobody fucking knew anything about, with nonexistent marketing or memes, that was considered something of vaporware, that was a PS4 exclusive for over a year, and flopped in its initial release, with nobody talking about it anywhere besides literal twitter trannies praising how pozzed the localization dialogue was, within a year, was more than half as popular as fucking dragon's crown, and as popular as fucking Odin Sphere?

What a hot fucking load of stir-fried bullshit.

13 Sentinels was quite literally the last game I was hyped for, after Atlus Japan scuttled mine and others' hopes to play it on the platform of my choice which everyone was expecting for years, and Atlus NA just ruining it further, harming Vanillaware and the integrity, value, and themes of their beautiful works.

Found the Play-Asia article.
They stopped the english release for it, and they also cancelled the english physical releases for P3 Dancing and P5 Dancing (though I don't care nearly as much about those games, but a lot of others did; the blame for that is probably more on Sony though with their bullshit)

Atlus Japan did not cancel the Vita version though, it was still available in Japan.
The "tranny" change was a product of the localization iirc.

the last good game was ut99 and even that had sub par code. the GPU interface is fundamentally broken with that pipelining bullshit that adds tons of instrinsic lag and "fixed" with bandaids like VRR and nvidia ultra low lag whatever the fuck (TM). every 3d game since 1999 or so has the GPU lag because there's no way to turn it off and its become the default mode of operation. even most 2d games use the same broken interface (also 2d 3d games have terrible artstyle. all those new "retro" 2d games, anything from 2009 onward with "pixels" is pure garbage)
you cannot play a game at 60FPS/60Hz without terrible animation artifacts like either heavy motion blur or flickering. you cannot play at a higher rate because it will dip down to 60 in enough times to be annoying  unless you run on ultra low settings (think about it, 99% percentile 300FPS is still bad, it means for every 80 seconds, one second is spent frozen, or with a more even distribution, every 80 seconds, you had a shit ton of stutters). you need around 300Hz (and frame rate locked to 300Hz using vsync or something equivalent) to make motion blur start not being an issue anymore
