indievision is 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 Hill-Whittall, 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.
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.
