    Default Indievision - Supporting small indie developers.

    Taken from The Sixth Axis

    We’ve already spoken to Richard Hill-Whittall, the man behind indie development studio Icon, but he’s just let us know that he’s founded indievision, a new organisation set-up to promote the interests of small independent development studios, and to provide information, advice & contacts essential for running an indie game studio. The organisation was founded by Richard as an evolution of the ChaosEdge site, which he originally established to aid Mobigame in their legal fight to restore their iPhone game EDGE to the Appstore. indievision is a volunteer based organisation; there are no membership fees – just developers helping/supporting other developers.

    Membership is open to any indie developer developing their own game(s); from 1 person upwards.

    “During my involvement with ChaosEdge, I thought enough-is-enough; why is there not a group out there helping Indies and offering free information, support and advice to help studio owners build up successful studios and avoid some of the pitfalls & immoral business practices in the industry.” said Richard.

    Richard tell us indievision was born out of a desire to help other indies in what is an incredibly exciting time to be an independent developer. We provide a place to talk to like minded professional developers & studio owners, to discuss development practices, business development, funding issues, and so on. We have an extensive list of contacts at publishers, law firms, outsource companies, format holders, ratings & official organisations, and offer free help and advice with basic tax questions (such as withholding tax), age ratings, QA and the many other issues associated with self-funded development and publishing.

    As I’ve said before, that 1000 Euro PSP dev kit is looking very tempting… Check out the website www.indievision.org
