Open Source is Indie Game Developer's Best Friend
Karthik Subramaniam develops games as a hobby. When he was a student, he independently developed a free 2D action game called 'Indian Commander'. This game was published in several web sites such as completelyfreesoftware.com, CNET's download.com and recorded more than 20,000 downloads. Karthik keeps a day job with an IT software services company, but spends most of his free time in evaluating open source game development tools and understanding the latest trends in game development. He closely follows the global game industry with specific focus on challenges and business models of independent game development.
