GarageGames Interviews 21-6
11:50 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

GarageGames has posted the results of an interview with Justin Mette of 21-6 Productions. A co-founder of the company, Mette's notable title is Orbz and Orbz 2, which have seen their way across a variety of platforms, including Mac, PC, Xbox, and Linux.

Mette discusses his origins, from working on a TRS-80 to taking the plunge as a full-time indie developer. He also offers some advice for those looking to start their own indie projects:

Pick the right project to start on as a team. This is an important step and one that we did wrong at first. Its extremely easy to design a game that will take too long to build. Your studio has to deal with making money and developing smaller "Next Generation Casual Games" is the best bet. Design your game to be as simple as you can think of but still fun. You will be amazed at how much work is involved in making a well polished quality game even a very simple one.
Also commented on are two upcoming projects. TubeTwist is described as a puzzle game that involves the completion of scientific projects via a series of tubes. The second, GravRally, is a futuristic racing game.
