Another problem on selling my games.

#1 Postby Kyla » Sun Dec 23, 2012 2:18 pm

Alright, I have a problem. Which I was not really going to sell yet since I haven't finish it, but I wanted to know how do I sell games.

Problem below that I'm facing :

1. I do not own my own website and I do not have the money to start a website yet, so how am I going to sell it?

2. I think on selling it on my blog but what I heard from my brother is that, blogger cannot upload that big file and sell it.

3. That's it actually. :lol:

Anyone here can help out please? :(
Thank you! :)

Worry about finishing your game first.

You will generally need to own your own website in order to sell from - there tend to be rules against selling things off free sites and blogs. If you're acting as a business then you have to behave as a business. There's a lot of complications that go into it.

But the first and most complicated is finishing a game! Many people do not try to sell their first game because they need the practice in wrapping up a big project and dealing with polish/distribution/bugfixing/etc first.

It may be worth putting in extra time and effort to go through the Steam Greenlighting process. The Steam client handles distribution of patches, games, and dlc fairly well, and quite a few people use it.

But definitely finish your game first.
