What Do People Say?

"Thanks to Jay and IndieGameBusiness we have found a publisher for our debut game, The Lightbringer. Attending their event was the best 50$ I have ever spent. Plus there is always a ton of useful information in the form of posts, podcasts and discord discussions in the community surrounding them." - Janusz Tarczykowski - CEO at Rock Square Thunder
"Few organizations provide regular value for indie game developers, and of those few, IndieGameBusiness is one of the best." Andrew Greenberg, director at Holistic Design Inc. and executive director of the Georgia Game Developers Association
"What's been built with IndieGameBusiness is unlike any other resource in the game industry. The livestream podcasts bring on a big mix of names, the Discord community is friendly and knowledgeable, and the events open up the kinds of meetings that are usually gated by thousands of dollars. IGB seems to be shaking things up in a way that may ruffle some feathers, but every bird has to molt, and the games industry is long overdue for a big collection of openly available business resources like this." - Danny Silvers - CEO at Lantana Games
"IndieGamesBusiness has helped me get in closer contact with people of the industry and learn from them, I feel like there are less barriers to get infos, insights, publishing deals etc... And I'm really glad they provide all this help and conferences for free, thank you very much!" - Bastien Bernand, Independent Game Developer
"Hey IndieGameBusiness and Jay! I wanted to reach out and thank you all. What you and IGB has done for the indie game dev community has been absolutely amazing. I've been wanting to transition to the industry but it was near impossible to get the real talk advice on how to start a games company. There's a ton of content out there on how to make the game, but not the company behind it. This discord community and the podcast has helped me tremendously on making the pivot over to start my indie studio. Also the meet to match online conferences you all do are amazing and has helped me find my current team. Thank you so much!!!" - Alina Matson, Founder and CEO at Playfitment
"I am a Venezuelan psychologist turned game developer, living in Colombia, for 2 years I was without a guide trying to start in the world of video game development without really knowing what to do. Although I currently work in a videogame studio that is expanding (we are already 20 people in strength). It was this discord that opened my eyes to business possibilities and I am even in conversations with several international studios that seem interested in my work, so just thank you for creating this community." Massimo Di Cesare, Indie Level Studios
"The IndieGameBusiness events have presented me an opportunity to network with so many industry professionals that have given me a lot of insight into the industry as well as a ton of great feedback for my game." Rob Broad, Owner at Broadhead Games
