I think I've realized that trying to make money from games at the moment is a far-fetched dream at best. There's a lot of folks making really amazing stuff and the markets are well-saturated.
Think I'm going to dedicate my time to making open-source video games of high quality, and the best table-top games I can. If it makes money then cool. That's not going to be the end goal. I'm not going to try to build a business from this, rather scratch the itches and see if that brings relief.
