Dan FitzGerald and Lisa Bromiel, two indie developers who are making an indie game about dog sledding of all things say they’ve received a lot of help and inspiration from Rami Ismail who runs Dutch studio Vlambeer. Despite no previous experience in the game industry and working on their first game, by following advice set out by Ismail in a Chicago talk, the pair were able to tame the business side of game making and even run a successful Kickstarter.
“It’s the lovely thing about the indie scene – when Vlambeer started, indies like Mikengreg and Chevy Ray Johnston were a huge help to us. Now, we can help out others through talks, organizing events, and helping out with initiatives such as the Indie Megabooth,” Rami Ismail told Joystiq. “In the future, Dan and Lisa will be helping others out in a similar fashion.”
