You have done an outstanding job. Greetings to Toivo Glumov and Natalie Kayurova.

It'd be great to see some kind of tutorial with tips how you made it.

Financing Your First Indie Game
7 August, 2018

Adrian Lazar, creative director on PLANET ALPHA, shared a nice video explaining how the developer managed to finance his indie project. The thing is that there is no magic formula here. The artist doesn’t have a rich family or some capital, so he had only two options: Kickstarter or government support. Kickstarter was not the case this time and he couldn’t get support from the government. What were the alternatives left? The developer prepared a prototype and sent it to game manufacturers. What’s next? Check out the full story below. 

In this video, I will talk about how I managed to finance my first video game and a development studio without any money of my own to invest (because I didn’t have any). Just to be upfront, there’s no magic formula.

PLANET ALPHA is coming out on September 4th to Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
