Matthew Viglione is a co-founder of SomaSim, a Chicago-based indie studio founded in 2013 to create simulation games. He has extensive experience in creative direction, writing, and graphic design. He also has done a few GDC talk such as his latest one called “Running a Post-Apocalyptic Indie Studio.” Those 1-star reviews, those hate comments, and trolls can definitely ruin a person night. Luckily there is the positive side of the community. The people that love your game, that will back you up and give constructive feedback. It’s important to stay engaged with your fans and not forget their support.
Remember that knowledge is only Potential power, Execution is the game. I highly encourage you take what you learn and put it to good use. Don’t let it go to waste.
