Welcome to Beginner Friendly, a game development blog.
For the past few months I have been building up to a career in independent game development. Over the course of the next 5 months, I will be working on game development full-time, with the goal of a commercial release within the year. Though certain aspects of this goal seem unreachable with my current skills, as my abilities grow and my knowledge expands, I think I have a good shot of releasing something worthy of a purchase.
But it’s not only game development. If I’m actually going to sell a product, I’ll need to focus my efforts on marketing and community outreach. These are the aspects I’m most apprehensive about. I’ve seen too many independent games release and fly under the radar because there was too little marketing (and luck) on their side. Hopefully, I’ll be able to avoid this, though people much better than me have failed.
In any case, enjoy reading and let me know anything you’d like to see posted!
