We’re going to dive into understanding the forces in the indie game market directly from top people in it.

Key Principle

Preparing from day one for a successful release.

Luke 14:28‬
“Suppose one of you wants to build a tower. Won’t you first sit down and estimate the cost to see if you have enough money to complete it?  For if you lay the foundation and are not able to finish it, everyone who sees it will ridicule you,‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬”
