From the New Yorker: The Guilt of the Video-Game Millionaires

"One night in March, 2013, Rami Ismail and his business partner Jan Willem released a game for mobile phones called Ridiculous Fishing. Ismail, who was twenty-four at the time and who lives in the Netherlands, woke the following morning to find that the game had made him tens of thousands of dollars overnight. His first reaction was not elation but guilt. His mother, who has a job in local government, had already left for work. “Ever since I was a kid I’ve watched my mom wake up at six in the morning, work all day, come home, make my brother and me dinner—maybe shout at me for too much ‘computering,’ ” he said. “My first thought that day was that while I was asleep I’d made more money than she had all year. And I’d done it with a mobile-phone game about shooting fish with a machine gun.”

If you follow the gaming industry, especially the indie scene, you’ve probably heard some variations on this story regarding coping with overnight success. This New Yorker piece paints an interesting picture of some of those experiences. As this happens more and more, with games by small and solo developers able to gain mass success, I like the idea of a support structure in place to help those that need help in dealing with it so they can continue to make games instead of more brilliant developers flaming out early.

I Can’t Make You Love Me/Nick of Time // Bon Iver

Turn down the lights,
Turn down the bed,
Turn down these voices, inside my head.
Lay down with me,
Tell me no lies,
Just hold me close, don’t patronize me
Don’t patronize me.
Cause I can’t make you love me
If you don’t
You can’t make your heart feel
Something it won’t
Here in the dark
These final hours
I will lay down my heart
I feel the power but you don’t
No, you don’t
Cause I can’t make you love me, If you don’t.
If you don’t,
No you won’t,
I close my eyes
I won’t see
The love you don’t feel
When you’re holding me
Morning will come and I’ll do what’s right
Just give me til then to give up this fight
And I will give up this fight
Cause I can’t make you love me if you don’t
I can’t make your heart feel something it won’t
Here in the dark in these final hours
I will lay down my heart
I feel the power but you don’t
No you don’t
I can’t make you love me if you don’t
If you don’t,
No, no, no, you won’t
I found love darling,
I found love darling,
I found love darling,
I found love darling, yeah
I found love darling, darling, darling
Love in the nick of time
I found love darling, yeah
Love in the nick of time
