The Wonderful Checklist: When Creativity Meets Strategy

Being indie devs, we tend to assume we should be all creativity and no strategy; but that’s just not true. When starting Monster Prom’s production with only $10,000, we followed a wonderful checklist to shape the game in a way it paired creativity with strategy following a mindset I acquired working in business and advertising. After release, this silly game has produced gross revenues of +$1,000,000 in less than 2 months, and so I think it’s time to share our wonderful list.
