The platforms, the technology, the ability to self publish and put your game on the internet, on android or ios is phenomenal. And the opportunity, once you start to get feedback, to hone your ideas is fantastic. Build your relationships, build your own cult personality through twitter and through different social media places. Get in contact, build a relationship, say something interesting to journalists and with journalists and people who write about games so that you get noticed. Because it is all about you at the end of the day!” See the full in depth interview below:
