I didn’t know this, but it seems that making cheesy flash games is a big business. With my career based in Flash, I’ve always toyed around with making simple flash games just for fun. I never imagined it could be for profit. I met a guy recently through IM on a flashkit.com board and he’s been giving me all kinds of tips to get started. I’ve also done some of my own research and I’ve tried to organize some links to share so others seeking the same things has me might have an easier time finding it.
