We are indie game developers who have eaten over 100,000 pretzels since we started our company, and are currently celebrating being rejected from PAX. Ask us anything about games & their development!
Our bio: Hey reddit! We are Raconteur Games, an indie game dev company based in Lafayette, Louisiana. Joining us today for this AMA are Nicholas (me), our "business guy", and Sander (/u/space_elevators), our CTO. We want to talk with you all about game development! We're currently celebrating our newest game being rejected from being shown at PAX -- we built our own booth anyway, and invite you to drop by from anywhere!
Ask us anything about how games are made, about the business end of game creation, why Nick has eaten so many darn pretzels -- anything! I (Nick) will be answering most questions, but Sander will jump in for any of the more technical questions outside of my wheelhouse. I've done previous AMAs about being a "business guy", and yes, I am basically Erlich Bachman but with less drugs. ;) Today we'll talk about more than just that though!
To those who drop by the booth and watch our cringe-y video: I would like to issue an apology in advance. Also please give us lame puns so that Kat (/u/espenova) can repeat them forever!
EDIT: Thanks to everyone for all the thoughtful questions! I'm heading off for the night, but I'll respond again in the morning!
EDIT2: Good morning! Back again for more questions! :)
EDIT3: Thanks for all the wonderful questions everyone! We're heading off now, but will check back in one more time later today for any final questions/comments. Have an awesome day and week! :)
