Hi I'm a game developper working at Ubisoft and started my own indie game studio. Ask me Anything!
I'm Daryl Barampanze, co-founder of Madlife Divertissement a small indie game studio that I'm running on the side of my main job. I work at Ubisoft Montréal as an online software programmer for the Assassin's Creed Brand. I have been in the industry for a couple of years now, from indies to AAA companies. Less than a year ago, I decided to start with some friends an indie game studio, outside of Ubisoft, to produce our own game. It has been and it is a rollercoaster of emotions and experiences as running a business is very different from the day-to-day job. As of today, our little studio has reached 10 people working on the game.
I'm here with Mackly Férère-Antoine as u/sh-dz who is working as well at Ubisoft. He is an animation programmer on For Honor and also co-founder of Madlife. We will answer some of your questions as well!
Ask us all kind of questions:
- What are the trend in the industry?
- How to start a game studio?
- How do we manage both work at the same time?
- What brand of coffee I'm drinking right now?
Let's start this! Ask me anything!
EDIT: It's been an amazing 7 hours with you guys. Thank you very much to everyone that participated, upvoted, asked questions and commented. Stay safe! - Daryl B.
