Default CastleAbra's development PreMortem.

Hey guys!

Well, I just pulled the trigger and finally announced our upcoming game!


(Linked)

TouchArcade Thread

But what I really wanted to share with all my fellow developers is something I'm calling a "PreMortem". It is a colorful comic journal explaining the long history of our game's development. In it I share my marketing "strategy" and explain some of the hardships involved in making games. I'm sure lots of you will relate.

Anyway, here it is. I hope you enjoy it.

Yup. I know the lure.

I'll be contributing myself. I figure by part 3 I'll discuss sales figures. Whatever they may be.

That comic was hilarious! I enjoyed reading it and it definitely relates to the majority of indie developers out there.

Fantastic comic, loved the humorous take on things, even if they don't go too well.

And Castlabra made it on my "go check it out" list.
