When I got up today the sun was shining, the birds were singing, the loud garbage truck was banging around outside, and I was inspired. Now, I don’t want to sound like a d-hyphen-bag motivational speaker, but I want to share some interesting bits of information that have encouraged me. I don’t know what types of games you are creating or for what platforms, but I make mobile games. So naturally I look to the games that have climbed their way to the top of the charts and have remained there. Doodle Jump and Angry Birds are two shining examples of success in my industry. Did you know that Doodle Jump was Lima Sky’s 12th game and Angry Birds was Rovio’s 52nd game? We’re working on our fifth game now, so we know we have a long way to go, but we remain hopeful. Keep your heads up indies. It doesn’t matter what game number you’re on or how your past games have done. Keep learning and improving your craft and you never know, that next game could be the one to catch fire and burn up the charts.
