Starting and Maintaining an Indie Business


A lot of us share the same goal: to turn our passion of making games into a full-time career. But the path from starting a passion project to sustaining a profitable business can be a long and twisty road, especially without guidance.

This Meetup will be a fantastic opportunity to hear from several local game developers who have successfully started a business and kept it running long enough to realize their goals! Among our speakers will be:

Matt Raithel from Graphite Lab:
Andrew Garrison from Jundroo:
Ben Triola and Dana Huth from Happy Badger Studio:

Each will provide a 20 minute talk about their own experience creating an indie business, with approximately 10 minutes of Q&A following each. These speakers have a lot of great wisdom to share for anyone in the process of working on an indie game!


We'll also start off the evening with the demo of a short game being developed by Jonathan Leek!
