Like many who came before me, and undoubtedly many to come after me, I am an individual who has for almost as long as I can remember been keenly interested in playing and designing games (Its my close Number 2 passion after Changing the World - yeps I've set myself up for a lifetime of disappointment ^_~).
My personal development since under the age of 10 has been STOS > QuickBASIC > PASCAL... and then apathy took hold (Its not a bad language - but my perspective of it grew dim at the time) and I shifted away from coding. I have since also gained a grasp of basic HTML - and a little SQL.
For a number of years I've been interested in learning C or Visual BASIC, even Delphi (due to its roots) - and am recently set on C# - I am using YouTube for the purpose of self-learning but to say that I have a basic grasp would be wild optimism on my part.
Areas of game development that I am interested in include:
- Game Mechanics
- Pseudo Intelligence (AI)
- World Building
- Digital Weirdness (code is liberty)
What I hope for:
- Learning C# (possibly more) without being a burden
- To code a few cool games
- To not give up again
No, I don't wish to be a lone wolf but neither do I feel that my projects have any more worth than anybody else's. What will be will be.
