So I keep telling my self that maybe I should create more posts about all those useful Japanese study applications, games and sites I come across like I said I would in my very first post. Well to be honest I do occasionally write those posts, but I send them as articles to a website I love, Greece-Japan, with all kinds of resources, information and news about Japan. The articles are in Greek though so you will probably have to learn the language first if you don't already know it! (^_^;)
Check out my corner inside Greece-Japan here!
After years (not that many actually!) of watching the Greek game development scene I realized that (besides being a stalker) there are a lot of Greek game companies and teams that were or are actively making games. So I thought, why not make a list with what I've gathered up to now and share it with the world? Well, here it is! The list includes:
- Video game companies & teams (name of company - published titles)
- Board game designers/teams (name - published games) & publishers
- Links for events (ex. game jams), communities and media
It's unofficial, made out of pure love for game development and you can use it in whichever way you want. It's still lacking a lot of information especially regarding board game designers and published board games. But that's where you come in! I have included a contact form in the end in case you want to share any sort of information like teams or games missing from the list. Just send me a message and I'll make sure to update the list. Of course, I'll keep adding any new info I find and you can also subscribe to the newsletter if you wish to receive weekly updates!
P.S. If you want to stay up to date on Greek game development news, make sure to join the communities on Facebook. I discovered most of the companies/teams and learned about new game releases and upcoming events by closely watching those groups.

Hello everyone! A new post! This one is small too -in the meantime I am working on a bigger one- and will probably interest those of you that are into game design and are constantly looking for and experimenting with interesting ideas.
Sometime ago I came across this wonderful website where Sean Howard shares his game design ideas with the world. There are over 200 drafts and concepts on game mechanics that everyone can use freely. So if you are looking for some inspiration about your projects take a look! You can also follow the designer on twittter.
And since you went through the trouble of actually reading this, here is a doc describing basic game mechanics using flashcards. In each flashcard you get the name of the mechanic, a description and a nice example! You can also find it in slides in slideshare.
Happy studying and creating!
