The Beginning

I have this dream about making a computer game. This dream always starts the same way: I'm sitting in front of a blank sketch pad. I stare at the pad for a few minutes and then start frantically drawing. I draw for hours and hours until my hand cramps and my wife asks me to take a shower. After I'm finished, I look over the pages of drawings and I see... nothing.

You can fill in the blank as to what nothing means, but this is the story of my game designing life. Ever since I was old enough to watch my friends play Mario Brothers (my parents wouldn't buy me a Nintendo), I have thought to myself "I can make dat, more juice pleeez". But wanting to create video games puts me in a very saturated majority, one giant pond where I am a very small fish.

But this has been a dream of mine for a while, and it will remain a dream until I try as hard as I can and succeed... or fail, or do o.k. Either way, I am at a point in my life where I need to put all of my heart into this and see if it's possible.

Ok, well I think I've said enough for 95% of the people who don't read this blog to be completely bored, so I'll end it here. Thank you for visiting!
