If you want to succeed in the video games industry
"If you want to succeed in the video games industry..." is a catchphrase often said by Jonathan Blow. The phrase is often followed by something ridiculous or extremely specific.
As far as I know, Blow hasn't explained the meaning of the phrase or why he keeps saying it. Here are some guesses I have:
- It's meant to teach or remind in a humorous way that there is no "secret sauce" for success at making video games.
- It's meant to remind that the secret to success is all of the basic things; that to succeed one must bear with all of the mundane tasks.
- It's meant to remind that there is no single factor in success; that one must get many things right.
