I'm starting this group to meet other indie developers working on a game side project or looking to transition from another career into game development, or game asset development such as 3d, voice acting, story writing, or soundtrack composing.
This won't be a group to talk about the "what ifs" in game development. We will be supporting each other through the entire process.
We will be serious about taking our ideas from the design document, through the development and art pipelines, through core game loops, and all the way to compiled and playable prototypes. We will be testing with real players, and we will be taking feedback and making our games better. We will work together to publish our games and following through on making each project financially successful on platforms like Steam, the iOS App Store, or Google Play Store.
I am a professional software developer and entrepreneur who has tinkered as an indie game developer for years and I'm starting this group to get together with other developers, artists, and people interested in the business of game development.
