a 4-star review form gamezebo! 
 
"The mobile format is a natural evolution for old-fashioned game books. Much as I love them, I have to recognise that the market is partially driven by the nostalgia of grown-up nerds like me who enjoyed them in paper form as teenagers. But here’s a novel idea: a gamebook app aimed not at reminiscing adults, but actual children."

+GeekDad makes me happy twice in one post-- once by teaching me how to control my kids' ipad usage and then by calling my work "drop-dead amazing". 
 
How to Lock Your Kids Into a Single iPad App

Like it or not, if you own a tablet, your kids probably own it more. We’ve had a heck of a time keeping tabs on our son’s use of the thing, but I may have a solution for at least restricting him from switching into something inappropriate, or spending a mint on new apps.

There's not really a place to talk about Indie Game marketing here, but I wanted to share a youtube series we did for our new project "You Choose! PIRATES" and hopefully spark a discussion about how you market your games and what you find has worked or not worked:

We've been lucky enough to have enough success to keep going and have a little to put towards new projects, but I agree that marketing is a total mystery.
+Anton Fletcher, is there a way to add a marketing category here?

+Honeybee Labs  has launched a new series of interactive books with a philosophy behind it "to celebrate the possibilities of reading on the iPhone and iPad.  An important part of that, Modjeski says, is creating trust with parents, who want to keep junk apps out of their children's digital diet."

Seriously, homeopathy is one of the most obviously bullshit laden woo's there is. Just look at it and think it through ffs.

You're always going to get a few people believing pretty much anything but the numbers that believe homeopathy are amazing. The NHS even has homeopathy centres which are paid for by the tax paying public. Money which could be far better spent.

Hello all, 

There's not really a place to talk about marketing here, so I picked the general discussion thread.  

I wanted to share a youtube series we did to help market our new project "You Choose! PIRATES" and hopefully spark a discussion with you all about how you promote and sell your books and to find out what has worked or not worked:

Hi +Ryan Modjeski, I have just made a "Marketing Tips" section, you where right, we need that :)

Probably it's just me, but I'm not getting the message of this video... how is it related to promoting books?
