Jonathan Daley's Blog


I have a passion for game design, programming, and storytelling in games. I am the Cofounder & CEO, Lead Programmer, and a Designer at Nacelle Games, LLC, an independent game studio who is Making The Games We Want To Play. We launched our first title, Mattie Math Bot on the Apple App Store in September 2014, and we're working on a new project called Rose Racer.

I have self-published several apps for iOS and Windows Phone. And I created a game called “Jumping Bllux" for iPhone®, iPad®, & iPod touch®.

I recently found myself thinking of specific “tools” which were a requirement for my releasing my first publicly available game and starting on my next one. This list is primarily targeted at independent developers, but anyone can benefit.
