Topics I've Started

Stopping a negative viral campaign against you?

28 October 2014 - 03:40 AM

I made a Kickstarter carefully and I will admit it wasn't the best but my ideas were blown out of proportion and twisted around. I've received all but death threats so far.

Fund my computer shop idea

11 October 2014 - 03:35 AM

So I decided either I'm going to try to have my opening a computer shop idea crowdfunded, or forget completely about it. I can't get a business loan for a shop due to poor credit and no cosigner. I was going to Kickstarter the project, but Kickstarter rejected it for unknown
reasons, saying that they didn't have a category for it when they did. So I am going with their competitor Indiegogo.

Here is the page: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/very-unique-computers-shop/x/2490486

Basically, I want to open a successful computer shop in my local area.

Your announcements?

Can someone advertise something on Your Announcements that isn't game related, assuming it isn't of a "one-time poster scam" sort?

Business advice? (Non game development related)

08 October 2014 - 09:00 AM

I want to start a small, local computer shop selling custom made computers. I already have someone to help me with it. The problem is, getting the funding. I figure I might have to take out a business loan of $10,000 to pay for building rental, licenses, advertising, and a small amount of inventory.

And that brings yet another problem. My credit is below average so I'm not sure I can even get $10,000. I also can't find anyone to cosign for me. People are too worried that the overhead will rival the profit - I live in a medium sized town, and figure I might be able to sell 2 computers a week and make $200 profit a piece off them.

Advice? The reason why I want to start a business is to have a job where I make money and work for myself.

Decapitate the ogres - game idea that has been in my head for awhile

29 September 2014 - 09:48 PM

You play as a stereotypical spiky haired warrior in a quirky 3D world with a grassy battlefield and fight ogres. The game mechanics make it so that besides delivering blows, you can easily decapitate an ogre. This sounds like a gruesome, gory mess. But when you decapitate an ogre, their head pops off like a balloon and flies into the sky. This can be done by having an art style that is slightly chibi on the ogres.


This would be a real-time action game.
