We’re team red panda, an indie developer team that cares a lot about furry creatures.
Yes, I know what you are thinking right now: “oh, another bunch of geeks that type frenetically on laptop keyboards in a poorly lighted room…”. Well I can’t deny that sometimes that happens, especially when deadlines are approaching, but this is certainly not the only way to be productive. Let me explain…
Furry animals have always been a huge help for us. I personally think that every browser should have a panic button that links you directly to a video of puffy puppies or playing kitties, sometimes that’s the only thing that could prevent problems.
Being always face to face with a monitor, whatever kind of work you’re doing, could lead to a lack of ideas, frustration or isolation. That’s the reason why we have decided to have a break to recharge our batteries and refresh our brains. What’s better than to make a visit to the source of our initial inspiration, the furry creature which name is bounded with our team’s one, the almighty Red Panda!
Luckily, in our town, is possible to visit them in an appropriate structure.
As soon as we reached them our hearts melted looking those amazing creatures laying on trees and lazily swinging their paws in free air.
Their deep eyes looked at us for few seconds, returning then to a scanning procedure revealing the best branch to take a nap on.
There’s really nothing that an image like that could not fix.
To even boost the positive status we were in, we decided to sit for a coffee, and that’s where ideas and resolutions started to pop up.
Finally the team had a new enthusiastic path to follow thanks to our quadruped furry leader.
So is staring at furry animals productive for an indie developers team?
I totally think so and, if you don’t believe me, why don’t you give it a try… and no, hairy men don’t count as furry animal.
