Cycle 28 is a 2D space shooter in the classic arcade style, where only your score matters. The controls are simple. The action is fast-paced. Intense dogfights lead to epic, screen-filling bosses. That’s all there is to it, or so you think . . . But the truth is, you don’t know what Cycle 28 is. Not yet.

Post news Report RSS What is it like releasing an indie game in 2018?

At the end of the week where development of Cycle 28 has finished, I sit down to share my thoughts on what it's like to release an indie game in 2018.

Posted by on

It's a weird weekend.

Firstly it's weird because we didn't post a Cycle 28 game play video. Instead we started a series called "More Like This" where we play games which Steam suggest are "Like Cycle 28". We start by playing 64.0, which is currently on sale. I liked it quite a lot and you can watch me playing it below.


It's also weird because for the first time in in a long time I don't have any coding to do because Cycle 28 is finished. Now our beta testers are hard at work starting to break it and Dave and I are hard at work trying to promote it.

We also bought cameras this week and the first thing I did was share my thoughts about what it's like releasing an indie game in 2018. You can watch those below.


As always, we like to hear from you so follow us on Twitter, or Facebook, or chat on Discord.
