1. Finish game.
My goals are much the same as a lot of others just starting.
1. Finish my game
2. Finish my website
3. Sell and Promote game
4. See some money roll in
I didn't really do much in 2007, I started trying to be an Indie Developer.
My goals for 2008 are:
1. Start and finish 1 game
2. Get at least a $100 profit from game
3. Hire an artist (I'm not very good at computer drawn art. >_>)
4. Start website for my "company"
5. Buy turbo charger for my car (Scion xB. It will have about 30HP less than my brother's 350Z. )
In 2008 i will...
1. complete the first version of my first indie game (and go farther if it works well) (NetRush)
2. start publishing and feed the webcomic i planned one year ago (Three Storms)
3. complete the one shot comic i started one year ago (Mekta Shtae)
(yeah 2007 was a big transition year for me as i moved and got to game developper job right in developpement crunch time storms; now i can have a social life )
4. Get published (comics and games).
Ok, now i got to back to work >__</
Btw, don't forget the original year-end thread from a couple of years ago. There's been so many copies and clones that people have forgotten the original.
Anyway, my goal for 2008 is to launch SocioTown and make it a success.
Sweet! I had in mind something similar for one of my next projects, since this is a thread that people will read in a year I can say I predict a lot of success for Chris Evans in a year or two.
1. Release my MMO.
2. Finish my MMO.
Yes, in that order.
4 2008, 'Happy New Year',
I hope to:
1. Complete Career Game Demo
2. Get Darwin Published
3. Complete my first co-op title before March.
4. Do a project that is totally indie.
5. Obtain a balance between the 'pressure' of wanting a game out there, and having time to enjoy the fact that I am still alive after 2007.
6. Dabble in other software and solutions.
7. Put more time into positive relations with developers and publishers.
8. Make enough profit to cover my existence on this planet.
9. Do art not just for games but for pleasure.
10. Stay consistent and efficient.

In 2008 I resolve to go Mac (MacBook Pro to be exact). And may God have mercy on my traitorous soul.
You are going to put Windows on it aren't you? If not, I am wondering how the heck you are going to code. Unless of course you are an artist or something else then, I understand why you are going to Mac.
I never really thought of a Mac as a "Professionals Computer". I think of it as more of a "Look at me!!! I got a Mac! *Prance around*" kind of computer.
Yay another new year! Should be a fun one -
In 2008 I will...
Finally release Blobyrinth and sell a few copies (Did!)
Create and release another new indie game (Didn't)
Move to Osaka, Japan(Did!)
Make enough money in contract-dev to survive (see 3)(Did for a while...)
Do some work in console-land, just for the experience (Wii!) (Did for a while...)
Go to GDC again and meet more folks(Did!)
Learn a lot more Japanese(hm... learned more, but not a lot.)
Good luck everyone with your lists for the year!
Never joined in .. but this year I will, 'cause I'm extremely determined this year.
In the year 2008 I will:
1. Release at least 4 casual games. (In the years 2005, 2006 and 2007 we managed only 1 per year.)
2. At least 2 of those games appear in at least 2 portal's top ten each.
3. Finish and go live the new viquagames.com moving Alexa rank to under 300,000.
4. Make at least X profit. (X is confidential)
5. Go live first web 2.0 business (non games related) and make profit from it.
6. Do Y. (Y is confidential)
My goals at this point are very nebulous, but I think they include getting 2 games out (one Wonderland related, one not), re-think and possibly re-design website/forum, and finding a way to balance work, play, family, exercise and all that without the need to invent a time machine to get an extra six hours per day.
Oh, and not spending too much time (although still some time ) on my retro games collection, which brings me to this:
Well, I don't need 20 2600s, but if you ever do make the leap to get rid of stuff, e-mail me - depending on what you want to get rid of I might be interested in buying some stuff off you.
I will clean my basement so I can move the office down there!
1. Finish DHSGiT by GDC.
2. Take a break.
3. Find an art partner.
4. Decide what to do next.
5. Do it.
Mashew: Mac OSX is UNIX. Try to convince THAT crowed of THEIR prancy coding. You remind me of the kind of person who holds a knife by the blade and ridicules people who still have all of their fingers.
Just ignore the 16 year olds vaunted wisdom.
In 2008 I will...
1) Get a job
I'm sorry. I have been brought with Microsoft computers. I am bias to PC. I dunno. Your choice to get a Mac. There is one thing that I'm jealous about Macs, there is this amazing graphics engine for it but, it is Mac-only. :/
My dad works for Microsoft so, I'm not allowed to get a Mac. That is why I am biased against Macs. One of my friends has a Mac and he says that yes, it is an amazing computer but, it really can't run anything.
...I forgot about Boot Camp, sorry about that. Macs can run Windows programs now. :/
in 2008 i will:
-finish my current university semester *sigh*
-make a new website in the 2 week break
-finish my design document for the next casual game
-finish the next semester after the 2 week break *sigh again*
-somehow complete the next casual game during and release it bevore the year is over...

upps i forgot, i must find a mod on this forum who grants me the indie badge, after writing like 8 pm's now i think ill have to write some more in 2008!
