The Indie Game Designer’s Tablet-Centric Workspace

Nickel City Pixels

A Windows tablet PC (with stylus pen — ideal for his line of work) runs the main show, flanked by bright red and orange servers. Routers and an external hard drive are mounted on the wall, with “wires running every which way in [his] continuing quest to replicate the bridge of the Neb [sic].” (So, yes, the wires would be an eyesore for many, but they’re a mess on purpose.)

Perhaps most interesting in this video is Kelley’s description of his productivity process. He’s gamified it to earn “points” for hours he’s on task. That countdown timer on the Galaxy Note tablet would give me anxiety, but perhaps it would be a helpful kick in the pants for others.

  • Unfortunately, that’s a horrible windows tab.

    I have the same one, recently got myself a surface pro gen 1. The difference in performance is amazing.
