I go by Ravenheart.
I'm an L.A. based hellbent one-man team grinding away on my defensive shoot 'em up day and night to the Rocky soundtrack on repeat, getting it ready for PS4 and PS Vita. I haven't seen any reference to consoles anywhere though. Is Game Dev Underground PC and mobile devs only?
I came here because I recently stumbled across Tim's channel after searching for 'marketing for indie games', since I heard from other videos that marketing is where indie releases heavily fall short, and I knew it wasn't something I had much of a grip on. After hearing him talk about 'conversion rate' in the first couple videos, my brain snapped and I've been watching through all of his videos for three days straight. Man's a GENIUS!! I had no idea! For the first time, I totally understand why corporations have marketing teams. Wow.
I know Game Dev Underground is where I need to be because I now understand that I need to get my landing page up to par, engage in social media outreach and learn more about the various ways to hone in on target audiences before I get too close to launch and fall on my face. I am determined to ensure that my game is as successful as it can be, and doesn't suffer the same fate as the constant flood of other good indie titles do, all for the exact same reasons. I am committed to creating and finessing the 'money making machine' Tim talks about on his channel, but have never actually done it before. I've figured Facebook and Twitter ads were a complete wash after putting in $50 once, and getting three interactions from it. Now I get what must be done. So, I'm here to learn!
You all seem like some pretty awesome devs! It'll be great getting to know you guys and looking at each other's games. Please, hit me up and show me some projects! I can't get enough of game development.
Looking forward to it!
