IamA Games developer that has used his savings to self-finance our first title which was only in development for 5 months. AMA!
My short bio: Hello everyone, I'm a games developer that has gone all out, quit his job and taken a big risk in order to create our first gaming title and take our shot at gaming glory. We are actually a team of two of which I'm the designer, developer and business side (not by choice), and my partner is the quality assurance and UX engineer. We have gone through the process of greenlighting our title, talking to different stores and gaining funds for our game as well as taking it to the next level and bringing it to consoles.
If you're interested in our story, how we've been successful and how where we could have done better, just ask away. I'll be answering as much as I can for the next 24 hours.
Edit: proof it really is us
EDIT 2: You guys are awesome, thank you very much for all of your questions it's amazing to reply to you all. My partner in life and in crime /u/trisypunk will now help me answer your questions. She is the person who made sure that the title is high quality and not a bug-infested mess, as well as easy to understand and usable.
Edit 3: sorry its taking a little while for us to get to your questions but the size of this thread... we really were not expecting you guys to like it so much! Keep the questions comming we promisse to answer all of them even if it takes us all damn week!
Thanks guys for all the questions! This was a lot of fun but we've been doing this for 9 hours now and we're tired. We're going to stop answering questions for now but be sure we'll continue to answer all new questions when we wake up tomorrow morning. It's 22:34 here so night night and again, thank you!
