I won’t call this a postmortem as really I feel it’s a bit too early to use this word. Let’s say that it’s just a picture I’m taking a bit more than a month after the release of Bret Airborne. I’m not even sure I’ll one say write a proper “postmortem” with the typical “what [...]
Before you read that I suggest you take a look at this post from Ryan Henson Creighton about the marketing push for Spellirium. I always find it fascinating when indies share some stats as it helps a bit to paint a more accurate picture of what it really means to be indie.
So you’re back? So [...]
I spent the whole day working on some stuff to see how far I am from my next game on the graphics level. I won’t waste your time and show you what I got right away. If you’d be kind enough to let me know what you think that’d be appreciated.
The first one is [...]
Or demotivational? Anyway it’s a poster. A tongue-in-cheek poster but if I have to say so then … well I’ll try to do better next time.
Marketing is like a highway filled with grey cars. There are so many cars and most of them all look the same so it’s really difficult to have someone notice [...]
Each time I make my case about Kickstarter I keep hearing the same thing: “But if people support the project from very well-known people they might discover and decide to support other smaller projects” …
The real trick to Kickstarter is first be widely known or be backed up by a big name and then it’s [...]
Since I’ve started to work on Golemizer in 2007 I have learned a lot on creating games but there’s one topic that is still mystery to me (and probably to a lot of indies): marketing.
It’s one of these thing that the more you “know” about the less you’re actually sure you know anything about it [...]
This is my answer to Beau Hindman article named What F2P and indie games can learn from SWTOR. To be fair to Beau maybe I shouldn’t call myself an indie MMO developer. Maybe I should say I’m some kind of Rambo MMO developer. He’s doing a great job to talk about indie and lesser know [...]
It seems that every week a new indie game bundle appears. With each new bundle we hear one more time that this bundle madness should stop. Why do these people care? I have no idea. Probably jealousy I guess. I’m jealous myself as it seems I can’t get in any bundle but I don’t understand [...]
So you will find below a list of websites/people I contacted about Star Corsairs. Mails sent contained links to screenshots, trailer, media kit, press release, etc.
I’m sure my list is far from complete but that’s the list I got so far. I basically went through websites that mentioned Golemizer before, websites that covered other indie [...]
Accounts created in 1 year and a half before the integration on Kongregate
This was done with almost no help at all by the way. I only did 1 interview recently, sent multiple press releases that were never posted anywhere but on low traffic websites, sent many mails to reviewers without receiving an answer, was featured [...]
