Indie game is FUN but PAIN (2)

First of all, you have to learn a totally new game development platform. I chose Unity due to its large pool of resources. Luckily, Unity is based on my primary programming language C# so that I can save sometime from learning new language. I recommend all newbies to try out the tutorials on the Unity community. Every tutorial includes tutorial video and whole game project. Thus, if you miss any step from the video, you can simply open the completed game project to take a look. Flappy Bird from Unity (https://unity3d.com/learn/tutorials/topics/2d-game-creation/project-goals?playlist=17093)   It is certainly that your game has to be attractive enough to draw players. However, funny game is not the only factor that can make you succeed. Even it is the best game you have ever imagined, that would be possible that your game has 0 download over weeks, just because the game has a bad name. How do you define what a "bad" game name is? Well, even if you type the game name totally correct in Google Play and Apple App Store, you roll down to the bottom of the list and you still cannot find your game.   My game icon (Originally called "Bounce")   Google Play search result of the game name "Bounce"   So, what should you do to make a "good" name? You really need to invest time to do some research. For those poor indie game developers like me, they need to find some free tools for help. Google has some build-in functions which can help you and give you some idea for a "good" name. I am going to talk about the tools in my next entry.   Google Play search result of the game name "Sibby Jump Adventure" (to be continued...) ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ MushroomWorkshop new free game rollout: Sibby Jump Adventure

GameMaker Indie game is FUN but PAIN

My full time job is a commercial system developer. It is totally unrelated to creativity and game industry. What triggered my passion is the succeed of the indie game "Crossy Road" which earned $10 million and had over 50 million downloads within 3 months after launch. I realized the bloom of mobile phone has changed the whole game industry. Free, simple, addictive indie games are now grabbing market share. Not only those big brandnames can achieve high download rate. Any individual, who has incredible idea in mind, is possible to beat off the giants. It is undoubtedly that the entry barrier nowadays is extremely low for developing a game, not only in a single platform but cross platforms. Thanks to the effort of Unity and Unreal, one single game project can be deployed to Windows, Linux, Mac and more importantly to Android and IOS (and Windows phone but who cares ). Before you start your project, it seems that you already have tones of potential players. Well, you have great idea, and you have tones of players, what a beautiful dream, huh? But soon you will know gamedev is not just gamedev.
