The life of a Unity Developer

Something Depressing...

One of the worst fears of a game developer is that someone big would start developing something like your game. This happened when I was checking out my Work-In-Progress forum on the Unity 3D website when someone brought something depressing to my attention. Undead Labs is in development of State of Decay: http://www.polygon.com/gaming/2012/9/5/3285711/state-of-decay-is-about-surviving-managing-the-zombie-apocalypse. If you have been following our game updates, you know that by the sound of things, this is very much like what kind of game we're building. We promise you, I had never even heard of this game when we started development up until the other day. I was sad, and I thought that for sure we were done. But we aren't done. You would think that with something big like this, a team would surely have to give up. That's what I thought at first, as well. It really discouraged me. But in the long run, this will keep us strong and encourage us. This inspires us to push on and keep going. We worked too hard to quit now. This isn't a quitting point, it's a learning experience. We can definitely learn from what this game does, and it will help us. So, this game won't bring us down. Thanks for reading guys, I just wanted to post this to let people know and remind them not to quit, no matter what. Thanks for reading guys, we'll have a terrain trailer coming out soon. Thanks guys, blog to you later!
