10 quotes every game developer should remember

From Carmack to Wallick to the makers of Monument Valley, here are ten nuggets of timeless advice from game developers across the industry.

Over the past few months Gamasutra editors have been taking pains to zero in on the choicest bits of game development wisdom that flow through the website and the blogs, sharing them on Twitter and Facebook in an effort to share knowledge with our readers.

Response has been positive, but the hustle and bustle of most developer's daily lives causes many of these insights and lessons learned to get lost in the shuffle.

From John Carmack to vagabond indie game maker Adriel Wallick and the creative minds at work behind the hit mobile game Monument Valley, here are ten nuggets of timeless advice from game developers across the industry.
