    Star up as a Game Dev 

    So, you want to make games, right? Should you go to college or something or just learn the video game ways yourself? That’s a interesting question since most of people on industry today started up by themselves, but most of hired people in the filed has some kind of academic degree. Nevertheless, The Independent Games Developers Association (TIGA) made this cool brochure to help noobs make up their minds or beginners to chooser their path. Also, if you live in UK, TIGA has all sorts of info about courses and exchanges in their site. After reading these and you think you are ready for action, you can try it out on TIGSource forum, which is a great place to meet other developers, discuss with them technical issues, have your work/ideas rated or just have some fun. Good luck to all who want to get in game industry and may the force be with you!

    The Big Fat Indie Games Lists 

    The Pixel Prospector guys made some great compilations of links to help both gamers and [wanna-bes] indie game devs.

    The first of all was The Big List Of Indie Game Sites, with sites and forums about indie games.

    Them, there was The Big List Of Game Development Resources, which has great links of tools/tips/tutorials for game design, music, graphics and programming. Is useful both for noobs that need to learn from scratch and for semi-pros devs that just need to polish up their skills or solve a crazy last minute bug.

    The last list released was The Big List Of Indie Marketing And Business Tips, consisting of a great bunch of links with both ideas and tools for marketing and business management to low costs indie games.
