Fancy Fish Games is an indie game development studio, founded by David Maletz, his wife Natalie, and some friends who are all passionate about making video games. We are currently focusing on making 2D games in VIDE (our in-house animation engine), however we have made flash games in the past, and may create 3D games in the future. We are named Fancy Fish Games because we create whatever catches our fancy. Feel free to follow us, I hope that you enjoy our fancy games!

You guys are doing great things! Im Currently working on a Interactive Visual Novel and your team gives me hope that such a thing along with any other 2D games can still strive in today's gaming world. Keep up the good work and i looks forward to seeing more in the future.

Thanks! It's a tough market, but if you keep making the games you love, hopefully others will start to love them too and you'll find your niche!

Procedural level generator for ICED is done... and it's the most complex I've done (with inter-level logic and progression).

@_GarrettHogan The survey only included ~4,000 developers (and only those who responded to their survey e-mail), so it could be skewed.

Jul 22 2014, 2:04pm by davidmaletz

@_GarrettHogan @gamasutra True, but teams didn't do much better. On page 6, it reported 57% of all indie devs made under $500 in sales.

@_GarrettHogan @gamasutra Yeah, I know - but still, to be that close to the minimum (even not including those over 200k) is not promising.

Another interesting art resource: great photos of real people in real settings: . Bonus: stories!

Jul 22 2014, 1:34pm by nataliedmaletz

For the average to be that close the the minimum included value... sure, indies who made over $200k were excluded too, but still...

Jul 22 2014, 1:24pm by davidmaletz

According to @gamasutra, indie #gamedev made an average of $11,812 in 2014... not counting those that made less than $10,000... that's scary

@DarkestKale That's pretty cool, a layering system. From the screenshots, I can already see a great variety of combinations.

Jul 22 2014, 12:36pm by davidmaletz

@DarkestKale How are the creature images made? One image picked at random from a set, or some crazy procedural generation thing?

Jul 22 2014, 12:32pm by davidmaletz

@DarkestKale MUAHAHA! And so your little project will turn into a massive game that never gets finished! Looks interesting though, good luck
