The main purpose of this website is to support Android indie game developers with tutorials, reviews and promotion of their games. The main difficulty for the developers is not to make the game, but to get exposure. To get it out there. If you find anything useful here, please spread the word.

Learning AndEngine - My Book about How to Create a Simple Android Game is Coming Soon!
