We’ve released the interview with Ilya Karpinskiy, MRGV fund.

I strongly recommend everyone who’s eager to multiply the growth of their project to watch this video. Explore the mindset of an investor and entrepreneur.

Conversation highlights:

- How to pitch your game to an investor? A roadmap for finding investors.
- How to present your idea and plans?
- How to get as much money from an investor as possible? What factors influence the final sum?
- What is the difference between the MRGV fund and other companies that invest and buy out studios?

- What problems beyond financial ones, does an investor solve?
- Do projects always need an investor?
- What influences the success of the project more: a cool concept or a talented and well-coordinated team?
- How to invest in a team correctly to provide them with everything they need and not to break the bank?
- What are the opportunities for gaming companies in the current turbulent period of 2020?

Enjoy the interview! #interview #investment
We understand that for most of our freelance workers work from home situation is usual. But not for big companies. And probably after the pandemic most companies won’t return to the offices, so remote work skills are a must-have now. We talked to our gamedev colleagues and found out life hacks for being an effective remote worker.

Here are just a few:
— Synchronize lunches with your colleagues to know for sure when they are having a break.
— Have a discussion-calls once a day that would be an alternative to chats at the coolers and coffee machines.
— Use statuses in Slack and other messengers to show that you are busy, on a lunch break or on the contrary you are ready to discuss situational tasks.
— Seemingly a trivial task—make plans for the day. This method works greatly at Inlingo and gives phenomenal results although it was hard to implement.

As a CEO, I start my work day at 5 a.m. and I often check the latest reports around 1 or 2 in the morning. And I enjoy every single day and rarely get tired. Practicing daily meditation helps me to be dynamic, multitask, and clearly see my goals in business and achieve them.

We’ve recorded an interview for BDinGD with Igor Berkhin, one of the most respected meditation mentors in the modern Russian-speaking world.

We talked about meditation, business, and the way they are connected.

For example, we discussed how to strike a balance between positivity and realism in communication with employees, where to look for energy after an emotional breakdown, how to use meditation to increase efficiency.

Igor, thank you for the interview. And big thanks for the message to game developers.

Our interview with Maria Lesk from Daedalic Entertainment on localization is out! We talk about how localization works at Daedaliс, how to convince the decision makers to start localizing earlier, and how to deal with players' subjective observations about game translations.

Our interview with Ilya Karpinsky is out in text.

Ilya is a godsend for developers who have made or are planning to make a game, but don't quite understand what their next step should be: where to find money for post-production, how to promote their product or where to release it. Ilya explains the right way to pitch your game, what exactly a convertible loan is, and how MY.GAMES can help projects in early-access stages.

Check this out if you haven't seen the video or you prefer to read rather than watch. It'll take you about 25 mins:
Hello everyone, it's been a while!

Together with the MYTONA team, we created another big and excellent case study — about our localization of the Hidden Object games: Seekers Notes and Ravenhill.

The study covers:
🔹The experience of building up localization process both on the client’s and the vendor’s side;
🔹Important factors to be considered when translating Hidden Object games;
🔹Localization examples from both games.

Thanks to all our awesome translators whose excellent work made this case study happen!

Here’s the link.

Localization into Japanese is very complicated. The Inlingo team has identified three genuinely tricky pitfalls that a translator into Japanese can face. How can just two symbols become 15, why are women in Japan much more modest than men, and what impression is created by a flower gifted to a seriously ill person?

We've identified three types of pitfalls and will show you how to avoid them.

Two of our artists tried to find an art style for a medieval VN project based on the same task description. Which one do you like better, the bright vivid render on the left or softer, pastel-like render on the right? Check the characters on our ArtStation and tell me what you think.
A few months ago, we released an article titled «Localization: What’s included in the cost?», and we've been getting feedback on it ever since. Some of our developer partners share their opinion on what they get for their money when they outsource localization, and why it's worth it.

Svetlana Panova, a Localization Project Manager at Playrix, shared her vision. Thanks for the valuable insight! Read the comment here:
