            Maybe don't have a budget of over 5000 dollars and then you won't even have to sell very well to break even

              This. Game dev should always be something you do next to an already successful career.

              marketing is by far the biggest hurdle, plenty of good or even great games have not made money because they didn't hit some lucky fotm streamer or some shit.

                I know marketing is hard, but you really don't need that many sales if your budget is under 2k.

                Yea true but you trade budget for time.
                Its going to take you years if you dont want to pay for literally anything.

              "Breaking even" isn't strictly earning back the money you spent on developing the game, you have to account for the hundreds (or thousands) of unpaid hours you spent making it

        If your livelihood depends on the sales figures of your retro 8-bit survival puzzle platformer about being an autistic depressed chud with cancer and AIDS you should probably get a real fucking job

        Good, or at least appealing indie video games make fucking millions, even without any copy protection.
        See Stardew Valley.

        The "piracy issue" on indie devs is called the coping, coping that they made a shit game, which doesn't sell, and yet somehow, still appears on torrents. Therefore, piracy killed my game.

        Meanwhile indie devs like wube and the guy behind hotline Miami don't give a shit if you pirate. Factorio has a button that allows pirate copies into your server. Miami guy even uploaded a torrent because the one pirates were using was buggy.

    I pirated this game multiple times, it's super fun and I am never going to buy it ever because it's not worth the money they want for it
