I am so grateful that I’ve finally found a way to do all the things I love doing — writing, editing, math, engineering, games, art, creating, story telling, blogging, collaborating with amazingly talented and creative people, and just having fun making GAMES!
There’s so much theory and study to game design and play, but I love that the most important end goal in every game is FUN!! The question always comes back to, “What makes our/your/this game fun?” Because games should be an experience, magical, challenging, beautiful, puzzling, and fun, Fun, fUn, FUN! Just like life! (Note to those that follow: a question you will always be asked and must KNOW the answer to is: “What is fun about your game?” If you don’t know, discover it. If it’s not fun, fix it or scrap it. If you know, add the fun everywhere you can without being too much and tell everybody!)
I’ve never been so inspired or felt so passionate. This game development/engineering/design journey is amazing. It’s hard, it’s wonderful, it’s challenging, it’s amazing, it’s keeping me super crazy busy (I think I get to sleep at Christmas time, maybe??), and it’s fun! Just the way it should be.
Where’s the fun? It’s right here.
(here = where I am because I am fun!) 😉
