About GameDevPowerUp

Build games you love to play and make fantastic riches doing it... that’s the dream so many chase yet so few achieve. Is the fantasy of making a living as an Indie developer dead? If you ask most devs, that's what they believe: Indie game development is a crap-shoot and you are very likely going to fail miserably if you try. But I don't believe that. I think the truth is, we are all doing it wrong.

I'm going to show you the mistakes developers make and how they impact risk and success. I'm also going to give you the tools and strategies to avoid those mistakes and make indie game development a lot less risky. 

Who Am I?

By day, I am Matt, professional handyman and small business owner. By, other days, I am a wannabe game developer who's been studying the indie game scene for years. I'm also a former intelligence analyst and an MBA who's done some programming and a good bit of data analysis. My mission is to crack this seemingly intractable problem of building successful indie titles.

Platforms I Use to Release Content
Any work I do will be linked back to this Patreon page, so if you want to keep up with the latest, just check here. I post content to several websites including: 
How Patreon Works
With Patreon, you can support my ongoing work to create videos, courses, tools, and insights to help game developers make games with less risk. Pick a membership tier ($5 or $40) and input your payment information. Every month you'll be charged that amount and receive access to the rewards for that tier. Your support is critical to keeping my work going! 

TL;DR
I’m making indie game development less risky for game developers. If that's something you can get behind, join my Patreon!
