I am a dad of three babies, husband, college professor and IT director. I wear many hats in my life and Game Dev is a new one that I have been challenging myself with.
As an 80’s child during the Nintendo era, building video games had always been a childhood dream of mine. Working with art, music, story, technology and all the skills and dedication to make videos games has always defined itself as the ultimate art form. I put this aspiration to the wayside as I dedicated my time to developing a career in technology, succeed in academics and develop the foundation for a family. Its time for me to bring this childhood aspiration back into my life. Although I have zero experience in game development, I do still have a passion for recreating the joy I experienced as a kid playing games like the Zelda Series, Mario, TMNT Turtles in Time, FZero, Mario Kart, and the list goes on. These games influence me heavily, and I hope to push myself and struggle through this process to learn game development to be able to create something that I am proud of, something that will (I hope) evoke the same sense of nostalgia and joy I feel, in others.
Your support is greatly appreciated and helps me stay motivated, helps fund my pursuits to develop charming, fun video games that I hope you will one day get to play and experience. It will help me buy coffee so I can continue to stay up late nights coding and pixeling. If you are unable to contribute financially but would still like to help, send me a follow on twitter or retweet my work and help spread the word. Thanks again, much love <3
