Why are smaller developers not doing more with branding ? You donít need to be a huge company to add branding, and it's such an important part of doing business in this crowded market place.
Gunslugs 2 is now available in a hectic day of press-mailing, support, and social media. Read about the stress, the adrenaline and struggles of a one-man indie company doing his own PR.. oh.. and get the game while your at it!
So people have been asking for a Heroes of Loot post-mortem, but I honestly havenít felt right on writing one up for various reasons. So I finally decided to just put those reasons in an article and see if that would be interesting enough...
This struggle between creativity and business can really tear apart a developer. The problem is: who do you listen to? The business cap is usually the wisest of the two, and the smartest solution to listen to... So I listened to the creative-cap.
The stats I'm posting here are for Gunslugs, a game I released January 16th, 2013 on iOS (universal, meaning one version for iPhone's, iPod's and iPad's), Android (phones, tablets and a few more gadgets) and BlackBerry's Playbook and new BB10 OS devices.
