Broken Rules founders Martin Pichlmair and Felix Bohatsch broke a Wii U dev kit while developing their console launch title, Chasing Aurora
. They didn't mean to break it, and to help other indies avoid the same hardware hazard, they had advice for the audience at GDC Europe's Indie Summit: Develop naked.
"Don't wear big, baggy pants while working with a dev kit," Pichlmair said. "There are wires everywhere in dev kits. Actually, it's best to do it naked."
Broken Rules' next game, Secrets of Rætikon
, is due out after September this year for PC, Mac and Linux – no dev kits involved.
