Former SOCOM developer Greg Chudecke has formed Caffeinated Games, according to this Next-Gen piece.
“When you read postmortems about failed indie game companies you often run across a common thread – either the publisher didn’t understand the concept or didn’t market the game,” Chudecke said.
“We at Caffeinated Games recognize publishers have to guess what games people will buy so it is often hard for them to sign off on new ideas. Also if your game doesn’t fit into a specific genre, they may have a hard time marketing the game.
“Our approach to overcome this is to make the games we want to play and then pitch those games directly to the gamers. Cut out the middle man if you will. The gamers after all are the ones who ultimately make your game a success.”
