Bryan Schneider's Blog


Hello! I'm Bryan Schneider - a "garage" solo developer looking to understand the intricacies of the games industry.

Games have always been a passion of mine since I was a child, and in my adult life I find myself wanting to pivot that passion into practice. I want to learn from the community and chronicle my endeavors from hobbyist to student to successful developer.

As a solo dev, I would obviously have a hand in every aspect of my projects from concept to prototyping, marketing, budgeting, doing the actual work of building the game and (hopefully) eventually running the business side of things as well. This in mind, there's much I need to learn and I seek the wisdom and experience of both successful and less-successful development efforts.
