The Trials and Tribulations of Indie Game Development.
  • POSTED BY xsuicidesn0wmanx on Jul 21, 2016

    I’m basically posting this here so I won’t forget to write about this one. If you expand out the imgur post you will be treated to a story of a group of young developers fresh from college making their own game. Even though the game was a success with the few critics who reviewed the game, it was a complete flop with barely any sales at all. It goes to show that even with a great idea you can still fail. I also found it kind of funny and personal, this guy went through some of the same crap I’ve been going through the past few months due to spending all of my extra time inside working on this site. Vitamin D deficiency and such, it’s a huge pain in the ass being dead tired all the time.

    If someone else beats me to this story while I’m working on the site go for it. I plan to buy a copy of these guys game and play it just to see how it turns out, give it a review. No one should spend years of their life creating a work of art for no one to pay attention when it’s done.
