Hehe, what about average rates? How much they pay?

I'm trying to make original / unique games. Unfortunately it's annoying when you're overwhelmed by hundreds of clones of flappy birds, 2048 etc

Basically markets now are not 100% about creativity, but about cloning as fast as you can Sad If there happens to be some new popular game, couple of cloners may be lucky to get popularity.

Still thinking that making unique games will lead to some success. But my hopes are getting lower with every released game. Recently i've released game which have got nice opinions on market / reddit. People really enjoyed it. I've contacted many sites writing about android / android games. Every single site ignored me - even didn't care to respond. So it's harsh world.

Exactly, that's why i even don't start writing medium game. I'm focusing on simple, small games. Can't afford to loose 6 months of work. And don't have money on promotion.

Hello,

Recently i have been thinking much about my future. Let's start from current situation.

I'm 32, from Poland, working as C# programmer in company which writes business apps. I'm married and have one kid. After work i'm writing games for android. It takes time, unfortunately time, which i could spend with my wife & kid. On the other side it helps to build some passive income. I hope that in future i could move entirely to making my own games and drop my job. But to do that i need to make some successful game(s). Writing game is not hard. Making it successful is. So it needs time, probably even couple of years. It's not easy to work 8 hours and than 2-3 at home. Also i'm feeling guilty i'm sacrificing my family time.

You may ask why i want to quit my job - there are couple of reasons:
1) In my area salaries are not that good. It's getting better, but still too low IMHO. Average net salary for programmer in my area is 1000 - 1300$ monthly. Some jobs offers even 2000$ but those are minority.
2) I'm little tired of writing business apps. I've been doing it for 9 years already.
3) I like writing games more Wink

Another option is to work in some company which writes games. But you can't find such company in my area. So i would have to relocate (and my wife would need to quit her job) or try to find something remotely - ideally for foreign company.

What do you think i should do?
1) Maybe it's best to stay at stable job and only write games at midnight / night?
2) Quit my job now, devote myself to writing my own games and hope they will be successful enough to reach income of my daily job?
3) Look for remote job? Do you think 20 - 30$ per hour (gross) would possible rate?
5  Games Center / Android Showcase / [android] [libgdx] Impossible Bounce Escape - extremely minimal arcade game on: 2014-05-17 17:43:37
Hello,

This is my latest game. It's extremely minimal game with very simple rules. And it's also very hard (i hope Wink ).



Your goal is very simple - rotate circle and don't let ball escape.

Arghhh Sad Please wait for 1.0.3 version, tutorial is broken in current version :/ It's normal game instead of tutorial.

Version 1.0.3 should be online in 1-2 hours.

Have you played tutorial? Basically you need to push number that way, so you can push another number on it from other side. For example push 3 from top, hit it with 2 from left, and 2 from bottom. Of course it depend on numbers you are getting.

Hello,

I would like you to show my latest game - Three Sevens. It's about adding numbers, gameplay is unique and original. It's not clone of threes / 1024 / 2048. My game is quite different. Should be more challenging than 2048 - you need to plan your moves to get decent score.





It's here:

Hello,

I thought it would be best to introduce myself Wink I'm 32 old year programmer who recently (for about 1.5 years) started developing games on android. I already developed couple of them and don't plan to stop Wink Currently i'm doing it in free time, after a job. Hoping to to them full time in future Wink

I'm using linux, libgdx and inkscape for graphics - i'm trying to do graphics by myself, so it not that good Wink

If you would like to see my games, check them out:
