Games' Postmortem

Where can I find a nice collection of iOS games' postmortem? Or recent "success stories" on the app store. I read before the ones for Trainyard, Tiny Wings online, and others via books and I had always found them inspiring and interesting to read. I especially love the stories of those one-two man dev teams.

those rare success stories can be really inspiring, but you should read some of the post-mortems where people failed. you can learn way more from those stories.

Thanks for the link. I did read a few of those as I do visit Gamasutra regularly. I did learn a fair bit from these postmortems, but now i am hoping to look for articles with a more inspiring tone, rather than just numbers and techniques sharing by established studios working with relatively big budgets. I guess you are right that those stories are pretty rare.
