I haven't been around here in years (you can see what I've been up to recently by trying out my latest game at http://chronodisfunglement.com). I started making Battleships Forever back in 2005 (I worked on it over two years). But I came back to say this:
I'm gonna graduate from DigiPen soon and I'll be starting work at Bungie next week. Somehow, everything worked out for me. But the truth is, my journey with game development started here.
When I was working on Battleships Forever, it was the feedback and encouragement I received from the community that kept me going. Without you guys, Battleships Forever would never have come together. Without Battleships Forever I would never have gotten an IGF nomination. Without that IGF nomination I would never have gotten a job as a game designer. Without working as a game designer I would never have gone to DigiPen. Without going to DigiPen I would never have gotten into Bungie.
I would not be where I am without you guys. Thank you very much for all the support and feedback you guys have provided over the years. Thank you for putting up my with my truly terrible first few games. Thank you for the honest feedback that taught me to be a better game designer/developer.
