Hello All!
We live in the wave of Indie Game Development.
I want to learn more about our community. Here we have already collected a huge table(>= 35)!
JOIN IN!

Now we have come to some critical point where we can try to understand the realtions and behaviour between developers and games Wink
Comments for that analysis you can find here: http://www.java-gaming.org/topics/the-game-developers-society/25969/view.html
Here I've put some basics statistics, that can be curious.


Just some comments.
Try not to overemphasize ideas count. By ideas I understand a game conception you would have definitely brought to life if you had more time.
It seems that we should somehow divide big nice finished game projects from smaller and totally novice ones.


My name is Max and I'm interested in game development for two months already  Undecided. It messes up with my scientific career, but I just can't help thinking about the games.
I'll start.

US. On the Mexican border. Which leads to so many "English, DO YOU SPEAK IT!?" moments for me. Even more so, when my college has so many people from South America, Asia and India. I mean, I know they have to pass an English as a Second Language test to even be in these programs, but a lot of times it feels/seems like they "understand" the concepts, but cannot express them in functional English.
