I accidently built a PixelArt-Editor into my #Indiegame and drew a Charmander because people in my Stream challenged me to do that...

Just a normal day as a #gamedev ... xD

Since many people asked:

I use @aseprite for my Pixelart Assets and I can not recommend it enough <3
You can find the game here :)

@Lennyficate nenn mir irgendein Pokemon, egal welches, und ich zeichne es dir :)
@gif_not_jif the tool needs a bit more colors but its quite fun to draw stuff already xD Really curious what you could draw with it :)

🚨My game costs 9.99$ and here is why:🚨

After 2 years of developement, I released my first #Indiegame at a price of 9.99$

Many people told me that I should increase the price because the game deserves more.

Here are 3 reasons for the price 🧵
#gamedev #metroidvania #indiedev
Reason 1: The Competition...

One of my main inspirations and favourite metroidvanias is Hollow Knight. Hollow Knight costs around 15$ and when Im honest, my game is by far not that good and polished.
So I knew that my game had to be cheaper.
Reason 2: I know my Audience :)

I posted a lot on Tiktok and I wanted to target younger players. Ofcouse, I really want to earn money to make a living of Indiegames one day, but on the other side I want that everyone can experience Makis Adventure. So I wanted to be under 10$ :)

🚨Why my Indiegame failed...🚨

I spent 2 years developing my first #indiegame and 4 months after release It still did not hit my financial goal (Its still a huge success for me personally)

Here is a thread with 3 reasons why: 🧵
#gamedev #indiedev #metroidvania
Reason 1: The Genre

My game is a 2D-Platformer, which is a pretty oversaturated genre on Steam. The competition was HUGE and the chance to have success with a game of that genre is super small!
Reason 2: Time Management

Im a solo dev, so I had to handle everything on my own. I spent way more time developing the game and marketing started way too late. Also the conversion rate was absolutely terrible for me, so thats a thing I need to keep in mind!
