Jonathan Blow did a talk about how he manages his psychology when working on long game and software development projects. It is very interesting to hear about these topics from someone in the game development industry. I have always found the mind and psychology interesting. I often time try to examine and understand my own thoughts and emotions. It sounds like John shares this interest with me so I am glad he did this talk. He also used the term “introspection” a few times. It never occurred to me that this process could have a name so I am excited to learn that.
