I love Berlin!
This pulsing energetic city just decided to sponsor me for the next 6 months for creating my mobile games!
Jeaaahh! I just received a letter this morning, after 4 months of waiting, the german „Arbeitsagentur“ decided to sponsor me, they give me the „Gründungszuschuss“, which is money for founding your own business, for the next 6 months they support me, so I can continue doing mobile games full time and still have money to survive and do marketing.
So after a short celebration break the last weekend, I’m back on track and I’m painting for the last 9 hours.
I figured that 70% of my time spend is on the visual part of my game project -> painting and animating or designing the UI. And only 30% I can spend on actual coding. Here some work in progress for level 2 and its creatures.
Just a small update/note of what Marketing Channel I’m currently running.
-This beautiful Blog, gamemanifest.wordpress.com
-Twitter which still represents The Sha Man Game but soon will change to the new Project.
-Youtube Channel, I will run my own, because I think it can be a very powerful tool. I still have to create the Channel Intro Video. http://www.youtube.com/user/Shmaitotem
-The Facebook Page I share public as soon I reveal the name of my new app/game.
I don’t have a Development Team Name or Logo!
Right now I do my games without any reference to the developer, me. I have no brand, logo or visual representation that could stick in the mind of people. That’s pretty alternative and maybe also dumb. Even due it appears very egocentric I thought about labeling my games simply with my name in the beginning. „DAVID ZOBRIST PROUDLY PRESENTS..“
Thats pretty much it for now.
