Indie Game Development Business Stuff

As I said in the last blog post, I’m a tad optimistic about the state of games. Despite recent events, I still think the tools are in place and the barrier is low. In the coming months, I will be using this blog to chronicle my own experiences. My mission: Finish a sale-able product and gather a team. I also want to create a sustainable tech/game business. The nice thing about the internet is there are a ton of resources related to starting a business or growing the community. My internet research is your bounty. I present a ton of links related to that very topic. I have found these articles, videos, and experiences very helpful. Have any favorites? Share them in the comments.
