Get married. Live in Washington state. Get divorced. Washington is a 50/50 state, so what if you don't have any cash assets? Time to sell stuff to make up for it. All of your cash is gone from the divorce, plus you had to sell tons of your assets off so your ex gets 50% of its worth. You have no liquidity, have debt from the divorce, and have lost all motivation to finish your game. I think it's relevant! Don't get married. Make games! Live happy! I threw don't get married in my list. Sorry about derailing the thread further, but I think it was the people who replied to just that one thing on my list who really brought the thread off topic a bit off topic. Hopefully my original post can be useful to someone starting out.
