The original Beat Hazard was first released on XBLIG about 3 years ago and marked the start of my Indie career. Since then the game has been ported to 6 other platforms, (PC, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and PS3).

Beat Hazard has sold in excess of 700,000 copies and grossed over $2.2 million. With overall development costs in the region of $70,000, this gives a return on investment of 3000%!
