It is crucial to keep up with the latest technology when developing video games. Software is always updating. Sometimes that means you have to be more flexible than your project. Of course, when something is new or trending, you should never miss a golden opportunity.
When starting a new development project, you will need to keep that in mind. Most frameworks in general don’t often pose issues with updates. However, any add-ons or customization can easily become obsolete.
The RPG Maker MV software has already had a few major updates. Certain early release plugins won’t even work on later versions. Luckily, the developer community often picks up the challenge of staying up to date.
Game development as a whole benefits when developers are on the same page. The same is true for virtually all software. Having the latest version will ensure that you are staying ahead of the game.
Yet, it isn’t enough to simply be informed. You must also make the effort to update your own projects. The Guelstie Universe Blog, for instance, has updated to the latest version of WordPress.
Changes instantly became mandatory as old plugins became obsolete, and the cycle of development continues.
Keep up with Trends that Relate
Millions of stories are shared online every day. Finding the right ones for you can be a challenge.
On social media, the Guelstie Project searches for recent post to share. First by searching through relevant categories using “#”s.
There is no use in keeping up with topics that are irrelevant. You don’t want to end up sharing something that doesn’t make sense to your audience. No matter what the president elect does or says.
Followers and fans will appreciate your post more when they are tailored for them. Use the #gamedev or #indiedev to show off your project!
