Co-founding Ragtag Developments Ltd

Ragtag Developments Ltd

I’ve been a bit quiet on here for a while and now you know why!

I started playing with computers when I was around 4 years old. I started programming at around 8. I started planning my future shortly after.

From that very early age I’ve always had the same goal. That goal was to run my own games development studio. This week I finally started to realise that goal. Well, ish..

Of course, it’s not really that simple. There aren’t any employees, just 3 other directors, who happen to be very good friends and colleagues of many years. There aren’t any games yet either. What there is, however, is a company, an office and 4 guys who are so passionate about this it’s kind of hard to put into words.

We realise that you can’t just set up a company then think ‘right, let’s make a game’ – that would be ridiculous. What you can do is produce the ideas, develop the technology, plan a bit, plan some more and then plan a bit further. But at some point you have to make the leap. If you waited for the ‘perfect time’ then it’d probably never happen. I think the same applies to having children but that’s a story for another day.

Having been in the industry for quite some time now, and visited quite a few conferences, I suddenly realised that what we were doing for someone else, we could do for ourselves – with the added advantage that we could do things how we think they should be done. My friends agreed.

To fund the development of our own titles we’re doing contract work – this pays the bills, builds us a client base and gives us time to develop our technology and ideas further. If you happen to know anybody interested in contracting a highly experienced development team then please direct them to our website.

I expect it to be tough – I don’t by any means expect this to be an easy ride. What I do expect is for this to be our ride, our journey. I also hope we pick up quite a few passengers along the way.
