Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
You know those flash (?) games on free websites and others where you do menial tasks repeatedly and progress to doing a bunch of menial tasks at the same time? The goal is to continuing doing these things to gain points/money to progress to having to do more things at a time.
i.e. feeding fish, making food in a fast food restaurant, maybe watering plants?
Terrible explanation, I know.
My question is: how much time/effort/money would need to go into one of these things, and what platform would they be developed on? I'm looking into possibly making one as a marketing tool, but I really don't know the first thing about game development -- just how to beat 'em.
