Every week Community Spotlight will showcase one of the amazing communities you can find with Thredd. Today’s post is about r/GameDev, a group dedicated to “All things related to game development.” Their discussions span topics such as programming, math, art, music, business, and marketing.
I stumbled across r/GameDev while working on the logo for Thredd. I was using a color-blindness simulator to decide which color palette to go with when I noticed that this site had been mentioned a whopping 31 times!
One of the top posts was titled: “Things We Learned While Designing Our Logo,” which obviously caught my eye. The authors of the post shared some struggles that I could instantly relate with but what I was most curious about was where they had decided to share their post.
True to their word, a glance at the r/GameDev site reveals a ton of content that’s highly relevant to anyone interested in a career in games. There are questions from aspiring storytellers, artists, and audio engineers, all with very helpful responses.
Communities like r/GameDev are why I created Thredd so I’m very happy to have crossed paths with this group. Beyond just being a sneak peek of how game development actually works, the group serves as an inspiration to a wide range of people that their hobby could lead to a career.
Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more Community Spotlights!
