"Don Daglow has survived 40+ years creating games and always retained his positive attitude. Learn from the master." - Jeff Braun, co-founder of Maxis (Sim City, The Sims)

"I was impressed with the organizational wisdom. I wish that I had been able to read this book 30 years ago." -- Chris Crawford, pioneering game designer and Founder of the Game Developers Conference

"Indie Games: From Dream to Delivery should be on the desk of everyone who's considering an indie game company. It builds a bridge between books on game development and 'How to Start Your Own Business' books. Daglow starts with holistic questions that cover not only nuts and bolts issues of your games and your business, but the kind of life you want for you and your team. I wish I could go back in time and hand this book to the leaders of several start-ups I've watched crash and burn; it might have made them successful. I'll be recommending it to all of my students with indie dreams." -- Prof. Stephen Jacobs, School of Interactive Games and Media, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
