Financial crisis in 2008 doesn't seem to have affected indie game sales at all. We're still doing crappily of course. We made about $10k last year in total. We have a couple of half-finished games in the pipeline but once again we return to contracting to make some money to live on.

Cas have you thought about submitting your games to playgreenhouse.com ?

We signed an NDA with them last year. Then they stopped talking to us.

How laaaame. Some of the games on there aren't even that great.

What about Steam?

Valve told us they explicitly aren't interested in any of our games.

Did they give any reason for that?

Nope, just that they didn't think our games would sell on Steam, I should think.

Cas, I played Droid Assault, and I have to say that game is awesome! I might be a sucker for clean menus, and graphics, but it was pretty damn sweet. Great job on it! Cheesy

Thank you Smiley

We did have a bit of a think about Droid Assault 2... lots of new gameplay with missions and a Build Your Droid screen and such (basically a different game with RPG elements but the same graphical style). Wonder if that'd be popular.

Sounds pretty awesome, if pulled off well. You could find gear to equip, which would be parts, like a computer for AI control when not using the droid and such.
