Hey guys and girls,
I work for a a startup(http://selz.com), and we're doing some research into the indie gaming industry. Basically our product lets you sell your physical or digital products really easily on your blog, website or Facebook page - it's pretty slick and very nice to use if I do say so myself
So I was wondering what kind of challenges indie gamers come across when it comes time to sell your games. Do you have issues with regulations of third party marketplaces at all? And what's the average fee you'd be paying - is it worth it? Do many of you sell on your own sites? And are many of you juggling a full time job as well as creating stuff on the side? We want game developers to make a living doing what they love - what do you think currently stand in the way of that?
It'd be really interesting to hear your thoughts - I imagine you'd all have quite different views on what works for you and what doesn't, but I'm sure there'd be some common problems too.
