Today's Special: Tips for Finding Success as an Indie Game Developer

Being an independent game developer is a great experience. As an indie, I'm investing in this game a lot of passion trying to exploit the best part of ME as a game designer.

Of course there is a schedule and a budget, but thankfully there is no game publisher behind me looking over my shoulders with a whip.

As a reward for reading this post, I want to share with you my personal and secret list of tips for warranted success:
  1. Have a great and unique idea for your game.
  2. If your idea sucks, go back to step 1.
  3. Write the best story.
  4. Design unique and incredible game mechanics.
  5. If you don't know what "game mechanic" means stop reading this post immediately.
  6. Eat, drink, rest. At least once a day.
  7. In case of diarrhea go as fast as possible to the bathroom.
  8. Make silence your best "kompristur palala kok".
  9. If you don't know what "kompristur palala kok" means it is okey since I just invented it.
  10. Code it.
  11. Test it.
  12. Publish it.
  13. Sell 100,000 (average price recommended $14.99)
  14. If you are ambitious repeat step 13 until you feel very comfortable.
  15. Be happy. Use your earnings wisely.
  16. Start a new game. Go to step 1.
