About Us

When Development Is the Game

Launched in 2010 as a game development blog documenting the explorations of two friends, No Time To Play has bloomed into a valuable collection of knowledge for hobbyist creators, most of which you can find on this site.

We opened on the 11th of August 2010 with the following message:

So, we’re up and running.

Why another gaming blog, you might ask?

Well, why not?

  • To showcase our own work.
  • To round up the news we care about.
  • To share the things we find cool and useful

Who we are? Just a couple of guys who like games (video- or not) enough to try and make our own. Sometimes we even succeed. We’re doing this for ourselves and for people like us. We know you’re out there; hopefully we’ll find each other.

Enjoy!

The site peaked in 2011/2012 with contributions from several people; this wiki mostly documents those heady days. A newsletter was started in 2014; you can find the first five years of entries in the archive, and newer ones (since 2019) on the blog. The site went through wrenching changes in 2017-2018, hence the mess.

It's still a worthwhile task to pursue. The journey continues. Thank you for being here.
