The PC Is Not Dead

Take it from a game developer, the PC is not dead. I have no comment on that other thing he said about mobile platforms. wink

Well the article title says it all: PC is not dead and mobile is sh*t. Of course I make a certain type of game and the market is more geared up to sell PC copies of those, and indies releasing PC games on Steam certainly find they can do pretty well on there too compared to other platforms. Other developers are having great success on mobile - good for them. But I would urge caution in the mobile market. It's HUGELY over-saturated and hard to get noticed. I got my existing games ported to mobile as a low-risk approach, but there are teams of developers out there spending 6-12 months on mobile games and I personally think that's a recipe for disaster in most cases.
