I am a native Chinese. Is it special here?
My English is very poor, so the article was translated using translation software.
I just turned 30 the last few days ago and have been developing indie games full time for over four years.
It is difficult for Chinese people to communicate with the rest of the world and I only found out about the website INDIEDB yesterday. There are also more and more indie developers in China these days, and people are finding such a freer way of life. The competition was so fierce that most people had to give up in the end. It's verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry difficult to promote a game without money. I tried to contact some of the local gaming press myself, but they all ignored me. Because I'm not famous and my game isn't dazzling enough. I think this is probably true all over the world. There is a very famous Chinese proverb: While the rich wine and dine,the poor die of cold by the roadside. I think it very vividly describes the current state of indie games.
I didn't know how I could make my game known to foreigners, so I came here to try. Maybe it will help a little?
Or maybe it's like a stone sinking into the sea?
Anyway it was nice to meet everyone. We are not alone in our development journey.
