About this Blog

The Casual Games Harmony weblog is run by Maciej Biedrzycki, who is a co-founder of Codeminion Development Studios and an author of many computer games (most notably Magic Match).  The main focus of this blog is to discuss the phenomenon of casual games and the impact they’ve made on both gamers and developers around the world.

Is that all?

Nope. I plan to discuss other topics as well, especially those that follow my personal inetersts. Here is an initial list of things that I imagine myself writing about:

  • Secret news about upcoming and historical Codeminion games
  • Observations and predictions about trends and changes on the casual games market
  • Realities of running an independent game development company in Poland
  • Composing and arranging music for games (and for fun)
  • Games that catch my attention (both casual and hardcore)
  • Advanced Game and Engine Programming
  • Some personal stuff (this is a blog after all)
