Hello! How many of you here have already produced a real shareware/freeware game? How do you decide if it is good enough to be a shareware? Are there any specialized sites where you can compare and rate shareware games (charts, download rates...)? And finally...(since personal sodisfaction is great, but small amount of money does not hurt..) What is your register/download (1%, 0.5%)rate? I''m not attached to the programming job I have now and I always wanted to do game programming. I would like to try to create shareware of my own (after the usual Pacman, Tetris...clones) to see if I have "the right stuff", and then eventually make a career change. Thanks...

check out dexterity.com, they have a forum devoted to the indie developer. He also has several articles on how to do shareware as a business. Pretty informative.
