PUBLISHERS, RECRUITERS, & DEVELOPERS:
If you’d like me to review your game go here:
ABOUT THIS WEBSITE: This is just my little corner of the internet where I talk about trending casual indie, and also deep-cut, games I enjoy as well as publish samples of creative writing and casual indie entertainment reviews. What’s offered is my humble opinion and a curated selection of topics I research and try with the hopes of making this interesting thing here I call “Mr. Dave Pizza.”
I have posted hundreds of self-written articles, and it is updated regularly with usually current indie and retro game topics, plus guides and tutorials on gaming-related topics. I also have a YouTube channel that is quite active. I am a positive gamer and like to write about things that make people happy. You probably won’t find anything too shocking here, but it’s far from boring!
I love post-modern games, independent thinkers, subtle allegories for the bizarre nature of things, literary cyberpunk, and even simple old games. Lately, I’ve found that I also just love good games that are casual and offer things like easy mode and assist options enough to keep me trying lots of new stuff.
In addition to writing and videos, I have *some* dev experience in Godot and Tyranobuilder, as well as being a GIMP ninja and an ever-improving CSS nut. Also, I’m constantly working on my artistic skills, especially pixel art.
I have played tons of games, which helps me translate the mechanics of games into a discussion. I believe every game has something unique to share with the gaming community, and that’s why I love to write about them. You folks are amazing!
I hope you like my content, and maybe I can create content for you. Thanks for reading.
Do you like my game dev tutorials? I wrote some exclusive articles in my friends from Indie Game Picks’ book Into the Indies. It covers several interviews with real game developers and how they went about making a game. My contributed articles talk about how indie devs can be realistic about their marketing and project planning. I am quite proud of my participation in this book and I highly recommend it. It’s available in print as well as e-book..
I am a contributor to ChoiceBeat The Visual Novel and Interactive Fiction Zine. I have written a couple of articles in Choicebeat about the games OVERBOARD! and NeuroNet: The Mendax Proxy. This is a pretty awesome group of creators and I support their work. https://choicebeat.wordpress.com/
I’m also a content creator for the group Indie Game Collective, just an open group for content creators, mostly on Twitch, who want to showcase ALL kinds of indie games. This group is not exclusive to one subculture or style, just a place where we share our work. The rainbow logo is representative of the variety of games we play and often how colorful they can be, also the diversity of our community. More about them is on Twitter: https://twitter.com/IGCollective.
And to end on a casual note, I also sort of/kind of took a throw at putting together my own solo-dev visual novel called Thank You, Mr. Bell. It’s a personal tribute to the historical inventor Alexander Graham Bell. I have had this one on the backburner for a couple of years now, but I love making things so I’ll probably pick it up again soon.
There is more about this project on this blog over at https://www.mrdavepizza.com/thank-you-mr-bell/
Thanks for reading Mr. Dave Pizza. 😊🍕
