Company Info:

 My claims to fame:

  • Co-founder and CEO of Broken Crown Games, small indie dev studio
  • Creator and Lead Writer of the Broken Crown series
  • Executive Producer for Broken Crown: Escaping Titan (in production)
  • Subpar programmer, messing up stuff where I can for my team
  • Subpar artist, inserting stick figures where necessary

 About Me:

With degrees in Nanotechnology, Biology, and a Master's in Biomedical Engineering - game development wasn't exactly my first career path.  Never the less, since mid-2011 I've found myself answering the question: "What do you do for a living?" with the response "I'm develop games."

Everything starts out at the very most basic level and builds up from there. r n r nLove this comment Tommy. r n r nI live in an area where noone is involved in game development, so when I told my friends I was making a game it was a ...

Steve, greatly appreciate the sales review 3 years later, and even with the 'transparent, community friendly ' games coming out from Kickstarter, finding sales data for business model projections is hard to come by. r n r nSeems like you hit a home-run on your first game congrats BTW , ...
