Fred Hicks Weighs In

February 1, 2008

Over on his livejournal, Fred Hicks weighs in on good reasons not to sell or publish your game, mentioning posts by Clinton and myself, but also drawing on the massive amount of publishing experience and good sense that is the Hickster.

When he sent me a link to his post, he wrote:

I kinda wanted to draw a straight line to you and Clinton and say, “Though we stand on opposite ends of the what makes us happy spectrum, we actually preach the same thing.” I don’t want my blog to turn into a one-note “You should publish here’s how!!!” kind of thing, so hopefully I can continue to leaven the publication stuff with a message of “Do it for the right reason, dudes.”

What he said. Also, if you’re thinking about publishing a game, you should read the rest of his LJ, because it is full of wisdom, basically distilling much of the experience of the Forge’s Publishing forum into a series of dense posts.

  1. Thanks for pointing this out. Its pretty timely stuff for me and mine (in terms of how one shares/launches one’s “rpg baby”). To publish or not to publish…
