Just sold my first game, what a feeling! Hope it feels like this after every sale
Congrats, the "first time" is always great.
In theory, after a while you should get used to it and not be excited much anymore, unless sales comes in batch of double digits
Congratulations What a magical moment, huh?
The way I see it, you've made money off games, and that makes you a professional game developer
Thanks, yes it feels good
Yup, you're now a PRO! (assuming the sale didn't come from your mum that is )
I see it that way too!
Congrats! Now to get your "INDIE AUTHOR" badge. (however you go about that)
Same here, but with a timeout. I don't see myself a professional game developer anymore because it has been a while since i got any money in my hands from game development .
Congratulations! I hope that feeling never goes away for you. The next big milestone is to turn off the special sound on your email when receiving a BMT micro order, because you can't hear yourself talk over dinner
I remember someone sending 20 Euros and a postcard by snail mail for one of my not-too-serious "donationware" games back in 2000-something (paypal wasn't as popular back in the day).
That day ultimately changed my life.
Congratulations! I certainly hope to experience that feeling one day soon.
Our feeling was, "Oh heck, someone purchased the game! How do we get in contact so we can give them their money back?"
But soon one sale won't be enough. You'll need 2-3 sales a day to feel the high. And then again you'll still want more and when you don't get sales for a couple of days you'll feel depressed and go through withdrawals.
Sales are like Heroin.
I always wanted to setup my sales e-mail notifications with a "ChaChing!" sound. Is this possible to do with Outlook Express or Windows Mail, or are you using something else?
Now your next target will be to sell 10 copies, 100 copies, 100000 copies ......
Congrats! Just reminded me of my first sale a couple years back now.. Wow how time flies
I've kept my 2nd ever royalty check from bmt Micro (back before I switched to paypal) and laminated it to always remind me of that special moment... It would have been the first but it was a fairly large amount and I couldn't resist cashing it in
I keep a 2004 or 2005 check from RealArcade for a grand total of $0,00
Almost. I sold my 1st game 28 years ago but but I can still get excited about the every sale.
28 years!!! now I'm wondering how old are you
I'd rather ask which game it was XD
What a gratifying feeling! Even though I've been doing this for almost 4 years, there is nothing like that feeling of satisfaction of your first game selling for the first time. I remember back when I had garnered enough sales of The Shivah (my first commercial game) to pay for a dinner out with some friends. I felt immense pride when I pulled out my Paypal debit card (at the time, all my sales went into my paypal account), slapped it on the table and said "This is on Rabbi Stone!"
Ah, good times.
Congrats, buddy! It certainly is a fantastic feeling to build something from the ground up, finish it, and feel the rewards
