  1. I'm new to Video Game programming. Hey, I noticed that general category searches for Google Play seem to only be returning approx 250 results. If I enter "Chess", "Checkers" or "Solitaire" for example, I only get approx 250 results returned. This can't be right. There should be thousands. Why is only a few ? Wht criteria does Google use to "Select" what the return ? Is this the paid for marketing results ? Did someone pay, is that why there Chess program was in the 250 returned ? Dont tell me there are only 250 Chess programs on Google Play. I know better. Did I do somthing wrong ? I did search on my PC But it's the same results as Mobile or Tablet device. Right ? This means that a general category search may not return everyones game, even if they are in compliance.

    Market Confussion, Video Game Industry?

    The point is, MEGA Corps have learned howto sport internet markets as orniments before they can become industry. This will KILL ALL but a few internet emerging markets in the future. It's a done deal. After allt some MEGA's have limits kinda like ATT / Time Warner. Well, It's a good thing everyone has plenty of money these days. And that Social protections for Social Security etc. etc. are in place (They probly will not be needed anyway). Because if you dont have pleant of money now, chances are you WILL in the future. In many ways It's easier to have your American Dream right now, than it's ever been. Maybe thats why a Viable Indie Video Game Industry became extinct so soon. No one really needed it. So, enjoy your hobbie indie.

    Market Confussion, Video Game Industry?

    There should be some type Law's in place to protect emerging internet markets for Indies. MEGA Companies have resources and can develop there own NEW techonologies, but insted they theve, stealing existing INDIE markets and sporting them like they created them thereselves. ALL Emerging INDIE markets will be lost in the future without laws to protect prosperity freedoms. For many, their lives have already been shrink wrapped and filed away into the resource cache. But, what's wrong with this code ? Feel Free to use your own Mega. Because (Indie = Individule) Here's example pesudo code... /* Notes: TRUE = (INDIE = 1); (If INDIE > 1 Then INDIE == FALSE); */ Set Google.Resource = All.Internet.SEARCH; Set Google.Resource = _most.All.Internet.MEDIA; # Run program Set CONST Google = MEGA; Set.Public.Memory = ONLY.GOOGLE; Set.Public.Memory.POOL = ONLY.GOOGLE.SAFE; Get INDIE.Developer; While (INDIE.Developer==FREE) IF INDIE.Developer == 1 ; Set Google.Resource = INDIE.Developer; Delete INDIE.Developer FROM Public.Memory; EndIf EndWhile EndSet EndSet EndSet

    Making it in Indie Games: Starter Guide

    Please stop saying that an Indie developer is a 20 person company or group. You hurt the indie field when you tell people that Indie = 20 or somthing. Why, Thats what the MEGA Corps like Google want you to say. THEY WANT CONFUSION ON THE ISSUE, It's easier for them to take control of a nich market when it's weakend by confusion. It actualy delivers it to them. Look Google is just one MEGA, there are others, So I'm just using it as an example. They dont want INDIE=FREE They want = FREE.INDIE; E.g. #*************** PUSEDO CODE, Google is just an example here, Use your own MEGA if you wish. TRUE = (INDIE = 1); (If INDIE > 1 Then INDIE == FALSE); Set Google.Resource = All.Internet.SEARCH; Set Google.Resource = _most.All.Internet.MEDIA; # Run program Set CONST Google = MEGA; Set.Public.Memory = ONLY.GOOGLE; Set.Public.Memory.POOL = ONLY.GOOGLE.SAFE; Get INDIE.Developer; While (INDIE.Developer==FREE) IF INDIE.Developer == 1 ; Set Google.Resource = INDIE.Developer; Delete INDIE.Developer FROM Public.Memory; EndIf EndWhile EndSet EndSet EndSet #*************** Even there staff is condition to speak in forums against replies like mine. Look, I'm sorry, but the term Indie Developer is shorthand for "Individule Developer" The term Individule Developer, is first person singular. Otherwise, ok article, but it hurt the Indie market yet once again. It hurts Freedom, It hurts the next Niche market, They will also destroy it, stealing freedoms and replacing them with a Shrink Wrapped Click that destroy dreams of freedom
  5. I’m interested is the Video gaming industry as an (Indie=Individual) developer. But… The industry looks almost completely non-viable. I heard that a decent/basic Android game on Google Play can fetch a whopping 50 cents to one dollar (including ad clicks) a day after being downloaded a few million times e.g. (2.5 mill). (Seems like the explotation of the livestock mentality is at work.) I thought it took real work, and that game art cost time and/or money ? Why would someone spend allot of time making a game, pay or bleed time for the art, allow it to be downloaded 2.5 million times and be happy with $150-$300 dollars PER YEAR at the peak (If they are lucky) ? And from what I’ve heard, Google Play will ban you at the drop of a hat. Plus, have enough regulations that one might think you would need a lawyer to protect yourself. Money that comes in $1.00 per day seems worthless without intrest. Like I said, I’m new to the Video Game industry (But, I've made good casino games in the past as an employee). Could someone please explain why people would do what looks to be completely stupid free Android game development for Google ? And please correct me if I'm really wrong. It seems like the professional Indie game industry is non-viable (dead) as it relates to revenu generation. And what about the next indie niche market a Mega company wants to destroy, so that they can have more clicks and sport that market like it's a new hat. There killing the possiabilities to have ANY indie markets on the internet. Thanks,
