This week on Monty’s Minute, we have a followup question from a viewer asking what is a producer?
After having one of his questions answered on a previous show, Rock Lobsta returns with the question what is a producer? What exactly does a producer do?
While the answer may seem pretty simple, maybe it’s not as simple as some people think. Most people are familiar to some extent with movie and TV producers, but it may be a bit more difficult to understand what a video game producer would do and why they would be necessary to the creation of a game.
Can using game engines like RPG Maker help someone show a game company that they are competent enough to design a game?
Another viewer would like to know if someone who has no artistic talent or programming ability can still be of use to a game company. As someone who is designed oriented he finds engines like these easy to use and has been able to make something that would spark interest from a potential employer?
Did the discrepancies between the press demos and the actual release hurt Aliens: Colonial Marines?
Aliens: Colonial Marines didn’t do as well as some people thought it might based on what they’d seen from the demos and press coverage prior to release. Some even say it flopped. Was the difference between the demos and the real thing hurt it? Was the fact that the game was passed between four different studios a factor?
For the answers to all of these questions, watch the video above. And as always. if you missed last week’s episode be sure to check it out here.
