Hello Indie Game Developers reading the Business Forum! When I'm not winning cars with games and making dumb faces in ads, I along with a few other guys run this event called Ludum Dare. In summary: Make a game from scratch in a weekend. It's a good place to start-out if you haven't done much gamedev before, or want to take a bit of time prototyping ideas. Ludum Dare is kind-of counter what this forum is about though. This is a business forum. We talk about ways and trends for earning money with games... sometimes! Thanks to an unusual combination of IRC taunting and playfulness, I am here to issue you a challenge. This October: Make a game — take it to market — sell 1 copy That's the premise. We're combining a deadline with an open dare to "get off your lazy butt, make a game, start your business". We're not asking anything big of you, but to make the jump from 0 sales to 1 sale (or 1 new product for those already established). And we want to see you do it before the spookiest day of the year ends. More details can be found here: http://www.ludumdare.com/compo/2010/09/22/povs-challenge-make-a-game-sell-1-copy/ That's my pitch. I don't promise you anything. Just a shared wordpress blog and IRC channel full of nerds talking and encouraging each other to take the leap from "makes free games on weekends", to "sells games"; And some of us from 1 core game to maybe two. It should be a crazy month.
