Giving up going it alone: The tale of the developer who couldn't afford to be indie any more

PocketGamer Biz: "Life as an independent mobile game developer can be a very trying business, especially if you're going it alone.

Just ask Rob Caporetto, a one-man app developer based in Melbourne, Australia. Having released Pocket Dogfights, a 1942-esque aerial shoot-'em-up for Android and iOS, and while still working on the retro-tinged Pivotus, he made an important decision.

Caporetto took to Twitter on New Year's Day to break the news: he would be giving up commercial indie development. Pocket Dogfights would become completely free, Pivotus would be developed more slowly, and he would be pursuing other full-time work."
