Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Yes, the NDA applies to that too, you idiot.

Cheat Codes… not!
Most games will have developer codes to make the development and QA process more efficient. The cheat codes will, for example, let testers skip twenty-three levels or buff up when they need to. It’s the only way you’re gonna be able to test deeper into the game, and they’re usually removed prior to the final version.
One tester did not know this.
He was being something of a dick, and was cheerfully posting the developer codes to every cheat code website he could find, months before the game was ever released, despite the epic-level NDA he’d signed.
When the codes were stripped out, he got VERY upset, and even sent the Dev team a long rant disguised as a bug report. He went into detail on why the cheat codes were necessary and that his reputation online was being ruined.
Needless to say, his employment did not last long.
