Sergiu Craitoiu's Blog - Marketing ideas for your indie game

The thoughts and opinions expressed are those of the writer and not Gamasutra or its parent company. I've been working really, really hard on my last game, for the last 6 months, together with other 3 friends. Last week we finally released it on Google Play Store. I want to share with you my marketing ideas and experiences so far, what marketing decisions I’ve made in order to promote my game as an indie and newbie in this industry. When I first met my team, last summer, to discuss some ideas for our game, I had no marketing experience at all.

First bad decision Looking back, I think that we took a very bad decision with our game right from the beginning.

Beginning Game Development: Part I – Introduction. Part I – Introduction Welcome to the first article of an introductory series on game programming using the Microsoft .NET Framework and managed DirectX 9.0.

Beginning Game Development: Part I – Introduction

This series as aimed at beginning programmers who are interested in developing a game for their own use with the .NET Framework and DirectX. The goal of this series is to have fun creating a game and learn game development and DirectX along the way. Game programming and DirectX have their own terms and definitions that can be difficult to understand, but after awhile, you’ll crack the code and be able to explore a new world of possibilities. I will keep things as straightforward as possible and decode terms as they appear. In this series, we are going to build a simple game to illustrate the various components of a commercial game.

Tools: Before we start writing our first game we need to talk about the tools we will use. The most important tool for any developer is the Integrated Development Environment (IDE). 28 Free eBooks On Game Programming! - StumbleUpon.
