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.

  1. Thanks :)   You have some tutorials or articles related with this ?
  2. Hi guys !   I'm developing a game for Android and I will need a server to handle the multiplayer side but I don't know which option choose. The game is a simple culture game with answers and replies, like 'who wants to be a millionaire' for example, but with 3 users playing agains each other. This is the main concept and now I need to help choosing the method to make this. I will need the server group the users in sets of 3 and handle the response of users and tell to the others if the other user guess the right answer. I think you understand the idea.   I think in NodeJS ... but I don't know if is possible to do this or I have other better options.   Can you help me with ideas and tutorials/articles ?   Best Regards
