Power of the mind over flesh


« Posted 2014-08-09 11:22:54 »

Hello JGO,

I had an idea last night. There seems to be no magazines about indie game development, so I decided to make one myself. It would mainly be some interviews. Would anyone be wiling to take 4 minutes and fill out a 4 question question/answer form http://tinyurl.com/llugdkh?

I'll show you the finished product soon.

Thanks,

DarkCart

Hm. Maybe there are indie game magazines. But, just like there are multiple magazines about food, there might as well be multiple magazines about indie game development.

Indeed, though the market demand and interest in food is perhaps about 1,000x larger than that for independent games. So it might possibly support 1,000x more magazines.

I was using food magazines as a comparison.

EDIT: Someone submitted some answers. Can I get a username/real name?

Roquen's interview is inspiring. It's similar to mine in many ways, in the sense of existence. Is this a weekly, monthly or annual magazine?

You should give it more time than just a few hours to answer it by the way.

I recommend that keep that form forever, and for every edition, check those results and select three best ones. Magazine should also contain popular articles by members. And first and foremost thing, please change the layout of the edition. (I can be a co-editor if you want, what do you think?)

I recommend a better title page Grin
Also you should probably ask for a name in interviews...not everyone is identifiable by gmail.

The most inspired part is somebody else did it for me.

I'm sorry things have been a little confusing on who wrote what, I promise things won't be like this in the future.
