A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing, by Joel Dreskin Marketing is an essential but too frequently overlooked or minimized component of the release plan for indie games. A Practical Guide to Indie Game Marketing provides you with the tools needed to build visibility and sell your indie games.

Alright, just looking though the Game Design Corner, I''ve seen one HUGE thread started by this guy Landfish, and at least four threads *about* this Landfish. Am I missing something? I really hate to add to this guy''s horde of threads, so I won''t complain if the moderator closes this up as soon as I get an answer... -The Street Preacher

Well Now,

Landfish is a bloke who has posted
some genius threads that attract lots
of answers to his questions or rants.
Then he replies to them, they reply
back and so it continues.
I won''t say anymore cos I he isn''t
he to speak so I''ll best just leave it at
that. Oh and one more thing look out for
the Landfish logo, man that thing is
spooky.

STVOY

I feel compelled to note that Landfish.com is not hosted on angelfire, just in case someone mistook it. It will have it''s own server!

...when it goes up.

Yeah, I'm sorry if I could have misinformed anyone, Landfish. I was just fooling around

On my previous post, do you see a "hosted by Angelfire" picture?

That's what it did on another post of that picture, so I removed it...this one is showing up okay on my computer, so I left it there...

Hmmm..now I see the hosted by angelfire thing...stupid angelfire...
