    Hi,

    I've been lurking this forum for ages, gathering all the info I could get. This February I finally released my first indie game (have completed plenty of games before that, but not as an indie). The game is selling as expected: not to quit my job for, but still getting sales. Sorry for not contributing much in the past, but I wanted to complete a game first before joining the discussions.

    I've learned a lot from forums, blogs, web articles, books,... etc. And also of course by releasing my own game and the experience I got at my previous job, working for a mobile game dev company.

    What I missed the most is that there isn't a clear blog/website that provides the shared knowledge on how to create and sell your own games. Kind of like a "best practices" summary. It seems that such information is spread across the internet, you just have to look in the right places and filter a lot. And when I look at some of the posts in here, it seems there is a need for such a site, especially for marketing info. So I thought to myself why not create such a blog/site myself? And so I did: http://dev.koonsolo.com. I've already posted some of my older (more technical) articles (you might know the 'deWiTTERS game loop' article, it is pretty popular :)), some new ones, and I'm going to add more content along the way. The goal is to post step-by-step, ready to use articles.

    Check it out and let me know what you think :) : http://dev.koonsolo.com
