Overheard@Gamescom: 'It's best to do it naked'


Broken Rules founders Martin Pichlmair and Felix Bohatsch broke a Wii U dev kit while developing their console launch title, Chasing Aurora. They didn't mean to break it, and to help other indies avoid the same hardware hazard, they had advice for the audience at GDC Europe's Indie Summit: Develop naked.

"Don't wear big, baggy pants while working with a dev kit," Pichlmair said. "There are wires everywhere in dev kits. Actually, it's best to do it naked."

Broken Rules' next game, Secrets of Rætikon, is due out after September this year for PC, Mac and Linux – no dev kits involved.
