"Zoe Quinn makes games, and she wants to help other people make games too.
"So on Monday night she put out a call on Twitter for established game developers willing to answer questions from folks who are just starting out, then created a shared Google spreadsheet where they could leave their contact info as well as what they felt qualified to give advice about -- everything from ActionScript programming to tips on building a business plan.
"She called it the Game Developer Help List.
"The outpouring of support from the developer community was so large, Google interpreted it as a potential DDoS attack and temporarily blocked access to the list.
"It blew up, and we broke Google," says Quinn, in an interview with sister site Gamasutra. "That was pretty cool."
