    Hello BHW,

    Let me introduce myself. My name is Martin and I live in Hungary, a small country in the heart of Europe. I'm doing internet marketing for more than 4 years now and I had both pretty successful and unsuccessful businesses in the past. My other passion besides internet marketing is developing games, especially for handheld devices (iOS, Android).

    Until a few months ago, I was making a LOT of money from my websites but I got lazy and everything collapsed. I got depressed, and I lost all my inspiration because of it but I knew it was my fault.

    In the past few weeks, I started to feel inspired again. I wanted to make something big, I wanted more... wanted to make MONEY again! And I thought why not do this with something I love to do...? Developing games! And then, I started to WORK all day and night to make this happen.

    I started this thread to keep my inspiration, inspire others, and to book my goals and progress.

    PLANS



    • Release AT LEAST one game every month, but keep in mind: "quality over quantity"


    PROGRESS

    Games released:
    2!

    1.: Gravybot

    (Just published it a hour ago)

    Good job, how long did it take you to develop Runcraft?
    I see some comment in Play store where people say that game needs to be better, swipes are not registered fast etc...will you make those changes?

    Seriously, this is one of the first game developer journeys which games do not consist of pure BS. Great job, correct the "features" that were reported by users and you are good to go.

    Thanks guys. By the way, if anyone could help reviewing GravyBot HD on youtube or anything, would help a lot. I'm a little bit out of budget to promote it as it should be right now, and my main goal is reaching the <#25 on the toplists. I'm sure I could repay the favor somehow. :)

    Thank you again for your support! :)

    Made a small Facebook ad for my game, it's active for hours but haven't started yet. I've set to Automatized CPM, hope to see some decent results once it starts.
