Episode 38: David Reichelt
At 33 years old, after a lifetime of career trial and errors, David Reichelt (Color Switch) starts to develop games, and over a two year period, creates forty... which all failed. Overcoming depression, major debt, and myriad jobs, David's 41st game, Color Switch, garnered over 200million downloads and set worldwide records. We chat about the important tools David used to keep moving forward, how his time as a medic in Iraq helped shape his perspective and resilience, and how using specific techniques in the book Thinkertoys gave him a creative edge.
