And how long have you been doing this game? And what about music ,is Josh Whelchel your friend or you paid him for that great music? I am asking cause i am very interested of making this kind of games ,and you have much more experience than anyone cause you were doing it all by yourself so you stand against all problems while developing and i have to say that you sucseeded in every way ,thanks for inspiration ,i vote 11/10 cheer!

Hi pravitko! It's great to hear that you enjoyed the game. Very Happy

The Spirit Engine 2 took a little less than 5 years to make, in my spare time when I wasn't at university or work. I hoped to make it a commercial project from the start, but later when I worked for some games companies I had to consider a free release because of the restrictive contracts I was working under. Josh has been working on the soundtrack for the same amount of time. He receives a percentage royalty from any sales.

Making games is very rewarding, but it is also hard work. I believe persistence is the most important virtue for an independent developer. If you are looking to make games yourself, I would advise you to start small. RPGs are a lot of work and should be avoided! Before TSE2 I had spent 9 years working on many other smaller games.

Thanks for your post! I am very happy that you might consider the game an inspiration.
