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.

"not the one of your oppressor - the christian church..."

How is it our oppressor? In Sweden, christianity is not big at all. 75 years ago, I think you were odd if you weren''t christian, but nowadays, I think it''s alot more people that are atheists than christians. Or am I completely wrong here?

Btw, you say you''re from the dark woods? Go see Blair Witch, that house at the end of it, that''s where I live =)

You are right. That institution has lost much of it''s significance... My intention was just to promote the knowledge of our history. I was kidding about the opression: In addition to the atrocities in the history the Church has done here a lot of good things.

If anyone''s made a game based on this idea I would like a link to its website, or at least its name. In other words, nobody has made a good Christian game before, it''s a virtually unexplored market, so why the big fuss on getting started making them. Why are you all trying to clamp down on a new idea? Too narrow-minded of a project for your tastes??????

Zerwit, What does Y2K have to do with end times? The Bible says that we won''t know when the end comes so it only makes sence that it wouldn''t be when everyone else thinks it is.

Oh, and in response to an earlier post, I''m a strong Christian and I know a lot of game players and programmers that are strong Christians too.

I thought of a good name for the antichrist last night:

Dudley Doright

But that''s copyrighted so I''d go with:

Stanley Dowell

Or some other sickingly "swell" name.
