Indie developer Nicoll Hunt will offer tips on how to survive as a solo developer at next week’s Develop Live conference.

The session from the Fist of Awesome developer, entitled How to build a one-man band, draws on Hunt’s experiences as he describes the challenges and obstacles of going it alone.

Here’s Hunt’s full talk summary:

“Releasing and marketing quality games as a solo developer is a challenging undertaking, but as breakout hits like Thomas Was Alone, Retro City Rampage and Minecraft show, entirely achievable. Access to high quality tools, digital distribution and the ability to develop for multiple platforms has made solo game development more accessible than ever before. Hunt describes the challenges and obstacles facing solo developers and shares his methodologies and top tips for running a successful studio comprised of one single employee.”
