undertale(a fucking GameMaker game) sold 1+ million copies
rust(a fucking Unity) sold 8+ million

Wanna get rich? I'll tell you how!
Make a somewhat interesting video game using a pre-made engine.
Greenlit it on Steam, slap Early Access onto it, promise everything and the kitchen sink to the players, maybe even smear some Kickstarter on top of it, and viola!
Questions?

My problem is the whole "somewhat interesting" part. I would give my left nut to come up with an even halfway decent idea.

I've been playing undertale and it's a shitty indie game made by a 100 lb nu male cuck faggot

Sjw "white men are evil" theme throughout the entire game

Happy I pirated it

You're not the only one thinking about or, and you definitely won't be the only one doing it.
Undertale is a unicorn of an indie dev success story, you'd have better luck picking which shitcoin is going to moon next than trying to get rich from game developing.

This isn't some un-tapped secret to make money with minimal effort. It's what thousands of people have been trying to do since the beginning on video games, with only a fraction being successful.

What's even more surprising/sad is metacritic user reviews are praising the shit out of this shitty game

You literally play as a random gender chink-skinned thing

The cuck creator made all the bad ass bosses female

Thank God I'm not cucked

Hey that might be beneficial.

Make a shitty game
Get it put on steam.
Tell everyone how shit it is and how the creator is a cuck.
Everyone gets interested in the game and the drama and the story of the cuck dev who was ddossd.

We make millions in sales of the game, win some gay feminist award because I come out as gender fluid. Get a book deal and maybe a movie.

protip: all success in games involves successful marketing, same as every other artistic field. if you just want to make dosh and you can do successful marketing then there's much easier ways to produce products. or you could sell your ability at marketing to gamedevs who are generally fucking terrible at it and the best they can hope for generally is to luck into a successful tactic once.

I don't know about rust, but the Undertale dev already had a sizeable following from Homestuck.

Do what these fags are doing.

1) Spam shitty devs telling them you can market for them (they'll take the bait because they're shit)
2) Take some bullshit cut like 30% you 70% them
3) When you finally land a game that, by sheer numbers, actually does well, point to it as proof to the devs that you're doing a good job

3) When you finally land a game that, by sheer numbers, actually does well, point to it as proof to the devs that you're doing a good job
the problem with becoming a scampub like blackshill is that you're never really going to get 3 accomplished because it's basically impossible to have a scenario where you've got a dev at a point in time where they're desperate enough to sign up but before they luck into success because the luck involves the minimum causation of trying things, desperate enough to sign up for a scammy publisher basically means too desperate to try anymore so no more luck to be had.
unless you have someway to make them desperate before they try to push their games. doesnt seem likely.

I'm making a fight game with the historical dudes.
But is really a hard work and time consuming

I forgot the BIZ data:

10 Characters 300 Frames = 10k
10 Backgrounds + animation = 5k
Special Effects = 3k
Music = 5k
Code = 30k (I can make the code so free?)
Taxes = 2k

So the game will cost 55k to make, with my code skills, living with parents 25k. This thinking on the most LOW price.
