Welcome to our series on “How developers game”. Today we’re talking with Georgii Krasin one of the creators of Biocell for sharing a little about how developers both play and make their favorite games!
Before we start we would like to thank Georgii for participating in our interview and for answering all our questions! Thanks!
/// Thanks for taking the time to talk to us about Biocell and your gaming setup. First things first, are you a PC or a Mac person?
In fact, I have both a PC and a Mac. I use the Mac to build and debug iOS apps, and I use a PC for everything else, mainly because it has much better gaming and (in my case) hardware capabilities. As for gaming, I also haveand PS4. And the getting most of my time, because of Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
/// Can we have a list of your top 3 gaming peripherals when playing and making games on your PC or Mac.
- Microsoft Sculpt Ergonomic Desktop
- Xbox One Wireless Controller
- Bose Quietcomfort 35 ii
/// Is there anything weird or unique to the work you do about your setup that you would be willing to share with us?
I always have a pair of headphones on-hand so that I can focus 😃 I also have two monitors, one of which is rotated 90 degrees.
/// Moving on to your smartphone, iOS or Android? And why?
Android. It allows us to use two apps at once with split-screen. I personally find it very useful. But I also have an iPad with iOS.
/// Top 3 games on your phone other than Biocell!
- Cut the Rope
- Kingdom Rush
- Monument Valley
/// Last questions, for all the newbie developers out there, what do you actually need in terms of hardware in order to start making games?
A notepad and a pencil. 😀 If your primary target is iOS, then buy a MAC, otherwise, buy a PC.
