Thought It Was Thom Yorke Who Said This
October 16th, 2010

Finally tracked down the quote I’d been looking for:

My girlfriend has this quote in her sketchbook: Remain orderly in your life so you can be free and chaotic in your work.

—Thom Yorke

I never completely agreed with that, (chaotic work? really?) but as a game developer, I’ve figured it out what it means to me:

Remain orderly in your engine so you can be free and chaotic in your game.

No really. It works.

  • That’s a great quote. Seems to me she’s referring to creative work. Which is best done chaotically, imho. 🙂 Howeverrrr what you extrapolated is definitely sound.

    Maybe the take away is … keep what needs to be orderly and what needs to be chaotic clearly separated, but working together.
