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.

What type of game are you going to write ????

I really like for eg. a particle system for explosions, or exhaust fumes.

But it really depends on what genre you are going to write

He asked ideas, here are some:

Lawyer game, manager you lil'' Name,Name&Name lawyer company, sue huge tobacco companies and get the profit. Of course there is isometric court house where you can corss exam, ask the questions and fake. Also add some financial side.

Manager your own Porn film production house. Films for all types of people.

Kung Fu simulator where you have 3d fighting enviroment and every move is based on players skills to move mouse and press keys, unlike mortal combar or street fighter where you must press right keys at the right time here you must cordinate your moves and practise them, there is no limits for moving which is based on players reflexes and skills. Realistic...





Time comes, time goes and I only am.

Oh my an adult SIM game. Interesting, though you will have a hard time getting thaqt into Toys R Us. *chuckle* I think the idea if done in the spirit of LSL series might actually be quite funny. Allow an easter egg somewhere to release the real content and make the whole game soft porn so it could be sold alongside Quake III''s blood, gore and guts. *oh irony is so fun* Interesting idea.

I once wrote a BBS game that was basically a sim brothel. not entirely proud of it, but it sure was funny. Failure to use proper protection increased your popularity, but inreased the chance of disease...

It was done as a joke, but turned out to be fairly popular on my BBS.


*oof*
