First posts for a new site are always weird for me. I could go into the whole spiel about what this is, and how I’m going to update it regularly, and that you could check back later for exciting news, and blah blah blah… Nope. Gonna keep it quick. If you want to know more, there’s a good ol’ fashioned “About Me” page for you to be scared off by.
But here’s the elevator pitch: I was a web developer. I quit my job over some workplace issues. I have money saved up and part-time jobs lined up for when I run out of money. In the meantime, I’ve become one of those insane people jumping on the VR bandwagon. I bought myself an HTC Vive and a GTX 1070 as an investment in my future of self-employment and indie game development. (I’m also focusing on art and writing.)
There’s the stories of Twitch and YouTube personalities who lost their job and had nothing else to do except stream games, and now it’s their full-time job and they (presumably) love it. That’s the position I’m in. I have a safety net in case it all goes down the drain, but I’m going to give it my all to build games, make art, and write stories on my own terms. I have to be creative or I feel like everything’s meaningless. With the internet and all the free tools available now, I can make this happen.
Hopefully, this blog will be have many posts about what I learn on this adventure.
