November 29, 2012 | By Eric Caoili




In highlights from Gamasutra's Expert Blogs, industry notables write about diverse topics, including platform sales data from indie hit Beat Hazard, how to be taken seriously by publishers or funders, and more.

In our weekly Best of Expert Blogs column, we showcase notable pieces of writing from members of the game development community who maintain Expert Blogs on Gamasutra.

Member Blogs -- also highlighted weekly -- can be maintained by any registered Gamasutra user, while the invitation-only Expert Blogs are written by development professionals with a wealth of experience to share.

We hope that both sections can provide useful and interesting viewpoints on our industry. For more information about the blogs, check out the latest official posting guidelines.
