A random post at 3 in the morning...

Hi there. Just been up doing some of my visual design work and about to log off before I come across this article about one of my favourite game producers - Masahiro Sakurai

The article describes his work on the new Smash Bros game and how much of the project he is taking on himself, including entering in most of the parameters for each character to balance the game.


“If I were to hand over the work to someone else, it would be a full-time, multi-person designated workload.” - Sakurai


It also says that Sakurai works so hard on the project that he doesn't finish a shift until after 10pm, staying in work for 12 hours. Considering that he's designing and balancing the game on his own, promoting the game and posting Miiverse updates aswell as writing Famitsu columns he must be one of the hardest working people in the industry. He probably should learn to delegate tasks to his team more granted but other than that it's inspiring to see someone work that hard on a project of this kind. Its the kind of thing which makes me want to improve my timekeeping, hence why I'm up still up at 3 in the morning...


Here is the Link for the read. Astounding: http://www.kotaku.com.au/2013/11/smash-bros-directors-job-would-kill-me/


Sorry if that didn't make any sense whatsoever, just a random nugget of motivation. Anyway my bed has summoned me so....zzzzzzzzzzzz
