Here's how it works:
  1. Anybody can ask a question
  2. Anybody can answer
  3. The best answers are voted up and rise to the top

Interested in both successes and failures (and semi-successes).

Maybe this might be better at OnStartups but I think the game market is quite a bit different than the business market that's prevalent there (i.e. selling something that's fun instead of selling something that's useful)

Since there is no clear answer and this question will inevitably end up in list form, I converted this to community wiki. – Ricket Mar 1 '11 at 14:45
@Ricket thanks, I meant to ask a mod to do that but I got distracted. – Davy8 Mar 1 '11 at 15:07

I really like (Matt Rix). He was really successful with his Trainyard game and shared lots of interesting sales and marketing related facts on his blog.

share|improve this answer Noel Llopis' blog on iPhone and indie gamedev is top notch in every aspect. Reflects a lot on the technical and financial issues associated with someone's first indie title.

I can highly recommend the both of them.

Not a blog, but a subreddit: Marveloper
