“Six years ago when we started GarageGames I didn’t truly know if “indies” could succeed in making a living making games without large publisher support. In fact, unaffiliated game developers were not even called indies back then, but we didn’t like the name “shareware developer”, so we used the name indie and it stuck. Now I absolutely know you can make a living making games, and I have developed many strategies to help you succeed.
I’ll explore those ideas in future posts, and hope to make it into a two way street by having a companion wiki at makeitbigingames wiki. The MBG wiki is open, but not ready for prime time yet, so look for it in the future.”
Good luck Jeff! Link
