I am a student, lone wolf game maker, programming, design and production consultant (mostly for smaller studios, or new studios), and conference speaker (mostly about free software being used in game development).
I have a blog, inspired by "sloperama", where I guide newbies of the industry, but in portuguese: criadordejogos.wordpress.com
Also, I have a english blog, about my solo company in blog.agfgames.com
Here in Gamasutra there are unique posts, the best post of blog.agfgames.com and maybe some translated posts from criadordejogos.wordpress.com
I interview myself, discussing what is the classic shareware model, and why to use it, instead of demo, trial, or retail.
Seemly the greatest issues by the game industry today are used games, specially ones sold in parallel to recent releases, and piracy. This article gives an analysis of that, specially, its source, and how to combat it.
