IndieDevKit is an online knowledge platform for self-publishing game developers. We launched this site because the lack of expert information and transparency on marketing and operations topics pained us. You shouldn't have to rely on anecdotal information to make critical decisions for your studio or game launch.

We provide bespoke support, reading materials and tools prepared by experts to help bring your games to market, and can offer customized support to guide you through and help you with the more complicated and time consuming tasks.

All our materials have been carefully created by our founders over months of vetting by other experts and official data sources. We will keep adding more content to our libraries, but feel free to reach out with requests or ideas! 

We don't tell you what to do - we show you how to do it!
