Releasing a game

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the best forum. Has anyone released a hobby game and made money from it? Obviously, it would be developed for Windows, Linux, Mac but not the consoles. You would sell it for less than 10$ or something. How about Garage Games? Are there other ways to sell? Other websites?

Are you asking this because you are just curious or do you actually have a good game almost completed? I would say make a basic website with a forum and other information with a free download for its beta testing and then work from there on making it more into a community and working out a payment plan. This is a 100% guess though since I have never tried anything like this.

The business forum might be a better match for this as it's more of a distribution and marketing question.

I'd recommend getting a copy of The Indie Game Development Survival Guide; it's got answers to all the general questions about indie development in there including how to make money from the distribution.

I'd also reconsider planning to sell your game for less than $10. Selling cheaper doesn't necessarily equate higher profits, and your game might end up looking inferior if you price it too low.
