Hacker News - Ask HN: Is it worth developing independent games anymore?


Recommended Posts

I wonder if I'm alone with this. I have been seeing plenty of developers create game and pour their heart and soul in development and marketing.

I heard about influencers who fail and get depressed, but since game development has become so accessible I wonder if this is happening to developers, too.

It's clear to me what I need to do to promote my game (new trailer, contact the press, social media posts etc.), but it takes forever to get myself to do it because I'm afraid it won't be good enough or it would fail for whatever reason.

I guess you get the initial rush when some people purchases the game in the beginning. Until you realise it wasn't enough. Have you had similar experiences? Any thoughts?
