Ambiera 2015 software development progress review

The year 2015 was quite eventful for me, both for the private and the business side of my life. Here is a short overview what I did in the latter part, in 2015:

I created numerous free updates of CopperCube, my flagship software product. Including the addition of realistic realtime 3d water, fog, and improvements of the WebGL renderer.


I programmed and launched a new website editor for creating responsive websites, and named it RocketCake. I risked the experiment and made if free. And People seem to love it!


We launched CopperCube on Steam, which was a first time for me. It was interesting to discover Steam from the developer side as well, as opposed to only as gamer, before.


I launched a first, playable version of my post apocalyptic survival simulator game, 'Endtime at Home'. Lots of stuff already works, and I'm proud that the world is 100% procedurally generated. The game is apparently interesting so far, and so a few people already bought it :)



Summary I'm pretty fine with my progress so far. Income is ok, and I like the new products and updates I created, and best: My customers seem to like them as well.

What's next I hope to get more to people know of the existence of my new game and the new responsive website builder. This is the part where I usually suck at: Marketing. But let's see what 2016 will bring.

I would be interested to know more about your business model.

What do you mean? It’s simple: create software and sell it. :)

I mean, how much did you invest ? Did you have some contracts to earn money ? Is selling your software enough to cover all your expenses ?
It’s a difficult task to start a company ! You seem to made it successfully, i’d like to know if selling software is still something valuable when you have so much free software available today.

Since you are not the first one to ask, I’ve now scheduled a blog post covering this topic for next week. Hope to answer your question then with that. :)
