Well, I have been lurking here for a very long time, and I think it's finally time: I'm going to be jumping into indie development full time in the next two months.
I was wondering, what do people who have been doing it for a while think of the current state of indie development?
It seems there are more resources, products and support in the indie space than ever before. At the same time, the traffic on this site seems to have become pretty thin.
Mobile seems to have been a game changer, but the glut of product makes it difficult to get noticed (aka make any money). Unity is reducing the barrier to entry, and Valve (and others) are making "indie" a genre of its own.
I would appreciate any insights into where things are, and where you see them going. Is this a good time to be jumping in, and what are the current challenges?
