Zoe Quinn, indie game developer (Depression Quest, Crystal Crashers, Super Street Fire), has headed up an effort to create a Game Developer Help List. On December 16th, she tweeted an open call for established/veteran game developers who would be willing to help out game developers who are just starting out. There is now a shared Google doc with nearly 300 contributors. The interest was so great that Google thought the activity on the spreadsheet was a DDoS attack and temporarily blocked access to the spreadsheet.
Evenually, Zoe wants to create a website (gamesareforeveryone.com) that will host all this information in a more permanent place. Other good resources for up-and-coming developers are PixelProspector, HobbyGameDev, and GameCareerGuide.
