Hello to everyone, 

My name is Tano, i came from Italy and i start a new adventure into Game Developer World here in Italy. This blog would try to describe and share my experiences with you. Sorry to everyone for my bad english =).

Let's start!

After the university, i've been start to working in a little SoftwareHouse with great people and great programmers. I've learned a simple concept: create a videogame is an expensive operation and without a backer, you can't do anything. So we start do develope a 3D Chat and a Classic multiplayer Card's Game for two different backers (or customers). That's all funy until i've meet one of customers here in my city to talk about this two new projects: The first customers, for Classic Multiplayer Card's Game, need to create a game with a special features like MSN, Skype and file sharing all in single game! That's was crazy! When I have tried to explain that it was not possible with a single programmer and in 9 months they have answered to me "we do not believe to you". That's was only the begin..

Some day laters they have showed me the website template for the game. This template was orrible, with a bent menu on the left! So i've tried to explaint to they: "You can use a bent bar on a PHP website! All website are organized in rectangles! And now all menù are on the top.. Just like ebay!". So they:"I don't use ebay because is orrible! We are much better than ebay!".

The next time i will explain to you what happen when i meet the 3D Chat Customers.. Stay tuned! =).
