Failing Upwards: Learning From And Building Upon Your Failures
As an indie developer, you’re going to fail a lot. Very few developers are successful right out of the gate. Successful games dominate the mainstream narrative and many new indie developers start with the wrong expectations – that they’re going to succeed and they’ll never fail. For most, this won’t be the case – preparation for failure is a necessity for survival.
