On the 13th/14th April Nintendo took over the iDÉAME Developer's Conference, showcasing the broad range of titles coming to the Wii U and 3DS eShops, while developers of all sizes took part in presentations and talks about the games industry. As we highlighted in an article on Nintendo's Indie Crusade, there were overwhelmingly positive vibes and opinions from attendees.
The event did serve to unveil some new titles, but for those of us that weren't there Nintendo UK has released a video featuring a number of attendees talking about indie development. We get some insight into their views on forming successful businesses, reaching the publication stage and some of the challenges in finding skilled programmers. There are also brief moments of footage of various games that we can look forward to on both 3DS and Wii U.
This is well worth a watch for budding game developers, or those who are simply interested in the people behind the games we enjoy so much.
