Undertale. Stardew Valley. Hotline Miami. All are games that seized the gaming spotlight when released into the world. And all are games made by one or two developers without star power.

Entrepreneurship may not be the first thought that comes to mind when talking about video games, but it’s one of the best fields for that type of thinking. Satchell Drakes and Matt Perez discuss the indie game scene and the opportunities present for those willing to grind out a game. They also talk to Mike Wilson, the cofounder of publishing studio Devolver Digital and Good Shepherd Entertainment. Topics include:

  • The free tools and tutorials available online, such as GameMaker and Unity;
  • The communities of creators willing to help aspiring designers, programmers, artists and content creators;
  • The ever-evolving ways to fund and release games, particularly with Wilson’s investor-backed Good Shepherd Entertainment.
