Austin GDC postmortem

Sign in to follow this  


Been working with my publisher on a new re-packaging of my products for other markets. I haven't gotten the numbers from this quarter yet, but I hope they'll be good. The games seem to be everywhere nowadays. My brother reported a sighting in a Nashville Wal Mart, and I saw the 2-packs at Sam's last week.

It's always gratifying to see my stuff on the shelf, but here's one tip if you ever get one of your products on the shelf. No matter how tempted you are. . .

Never, but never, tell anyone "I wrote this"

In almost four years of seeing my products on the shelf, I've never had a positive experience from this. The best I've ever gotten is a blank look from the CompUSA salespeople. If you see your product on the shelf, just enjoy the display and smile smugly to yourself. Don't point it out to other folks, because they just won't understand.
