Small background: My experience with building games is 3+ years and unlike the other so-called "developers" I never used Kickstarter or beg people for money. Other than building games my other job as a game developer is building the music, code and art, everything but 2D art is easy for me to build. Steam is not where my games are and they will never be there because their Steam Agreement on all users is criminal, also it is banned where I live so can't really set up an account anyway (don't ask where I live, I always give false info when someone does ask).
That is a good small detail about me, if you like to play/see my games, visit itch.io: https://firecat.itch.io/
Ask away, I know a little bit more about the indie game developer side than what most "developers" claim on their blog/youtube/website/interviews/reddit/etc.
