Start a new ******* or incorporate into my old one?

One general ******* or several more specialized ones?

  • Don't split your audience, bruh. Just one campaign for everything.

  • Segment that audience, man. It's not that much extra work.

  • Other (leave a comment)

I'm spending more and more time devoted to my game dev "hobby" and I figured I might as well try to see if I can get it to pay for itself through *******. As it is, however, I already have one for the books I write and the podcasts I produce. My first impulse was to just add game development as an aspect to the ******* page, but I'm not certain that my current patrons (largely fans of my writing) would be interested in the games I'm working on, or that anyone who finds me through my games is interested in supporting my writing and podcasting.

Then again, it's more effort/overhead to maintain multiple platforms, and I'd be splitting my audience.

Should I maintain a separate game dev *******, or just promote my game stuff on the already-established one I've already got?

I would recommend separating them out, but make a link and post about it on your current *******. In this way, fans of your writing who might also be interested in your game projects will be able to support you there as well, while those who are more writing inclined would not be inundated with out of character content. You'll eventually develop two entirely separate fan bases, with some wonderful overlap. :)

This sounds like an excellent idea.

For me personally, I get bored/annoyed when a creator goes off on a really out-of-genre tangent.
(for example, "I thought I was supporting your enjoyable horror fiction, but now it seems like all you do is this boring podcast where you and your musician friends talk about stuff I don't understand.")

hmm one of those days where there's a lot to work on with my game... annnnnd I have no idea what I wanna do. most of it tho, involves drawing lol. either enemies or NPCs.
I'm going back to the default RTP, in the interest of getting it done. FSM is lovely but slow to work with and has tall doors. And switching to tall sprites would mean a lot of franking, and also the horses will be small.
I think I developed a stalker trauma (stalkerfobia?) because of my previous work publishing games on Steam. :(
RIP, MeatLoaf :( Hot patootie, bless his soul, he really loved that rock 'n roll.
Psychronics Games is doing a livestream about my game in a bit... And I will do a video about his game after that.
Watch their stream with us on youtube!
