Getting there

So, today was slow going for me. My focus was in other areas today but I will be catching up this weekend. My goal is to have my mobile game done and published by the end of the weekend. I am absolutely loving the way this game is coming together and can’t wait to see it finished. I still have so much to learn but I feel I have come such a long way in just a few weeks in my knowledge and skills with Unity and C#.

I had a proud moment as a game developer the other day as well. I was told by my daughters teacher that she has been going around school telling everyone that would listen that her Dad makes video games. She told them all about the games I have made so far and was talking like it was the coolest thing in the world. I know she is only five, so the bar for her level of cool has not been set to high yet, but it made me proud to be doing what Im doing. To tell you the truth, I feel the same way she does. This is a really awesome thing to be doing and I am proud to tell people that I am doing it. I absolutely love it and love the potential it has that I haven’t even scraped the surface of.

To top it all off, I have a live in game tester as well. My daughter sat at my computer playing one of the games I made and would not leave it for a good half an hour. She was getting so excited, throwing hands up, some ‘woohoo’s, and really loving playing it. She even tried out the mobile game I am working on now. It was great to see the excitement and even greater to see my daughter playing one of the first games I have made in what I hope is a long career in game development. I took a video of it so I can look back with her 10–15 years from now and watch where I came from.

That being said, I need to get to work and get this next game done and looking and playing good so I can publish my first game on the play store. I worked on the attack system today and will be moving into the loot system tomorrow with a shop and shop keeper, and the main menu and Unity ads. Hopefully I will be wrapping up the game by tomorrow evening if all goes well. I hope to be able to link to my new game on the play store in my next post!
