Posted this 1 month ago into the unity forum hasn’t get much feedback / resonance. This would require some development investment but would pay of tenfold, they could also buy a company like xsolla to speed that up. See the details in the image below or press the link to the forum post.
But their profits would increase dramatically with the current bear market and their stock beeing down to 48$ this is a huge wasted opportunity for them. I would love to see them rise again and ever far beyond their current all time high.
Here the idea:
Specially for industries which currently do NOT have their own stores, like for example the health sector, this would enable them to also use in app purchases which currently they can’t.
Since 2013 I am working for myself. As a full time Indie App Game Developer working on my own apps. Starting off with a savings Budget of 5000 Euro.
Since than it was fluctuating and dropping to lows like 1500 Euro just to rise up to 5000 and above again, to 8000. There were special the initial 8 Months where I made cents and the savings were burning down.
But what is killing all my savings right now are the estimated taxes I have to pay since 2016. Since I earned well in 2015 the amount I have to pre-pay every 3 months to the Finanzamt were big in 2016 and 2017. 1000 Euro and 500 Euro steps to be exactly.
In 2016 I pre-paid 3000 Euro and in 2017 2000 Euro.
While I was making 9800 in each of those years..
My Depot just reached the minus digit. (-1.66 Euro)
My tax lady had to keep postponing the tax entries for 2016 for more than a half year now, because she gave birth.
Im so desperately waiting for that tax entry which should give me back 2016+2017 => 5000 Euro – maybe 400 Euro max. But that could take another 3 months.
Were I will struggle to pay my rent and insurance.
Indie game developer full-time the life of a starving artist..
I thought by now it might have led me to something bigger. But I am still struggling. And I’m exhausted.
Of course I see it as a big achievement already being able to make this full time for 4 years.
But now I started doing simple mini-jobs on the side to keep the money coming in.
I took a whole month learning Unity and C#, since I feel limited by my current Game Engine (Game salad) how ever I cant see the big target I should aim towards and I don’t have that naive energy anymore which I started out with.
