Greetings all! First time poster, long time gamer and aspiring game developer.
So like so many of us, I grew up playing games like it was going out of style. Naturally, I found myself one day wishing I could make games as well. "What amazing games I could make!" I would say to myself with childish awe. I spent many a day toiling away with my BASIC/assembly programming book, studying printouts of 3D matrix rotations, quaternion rotations, vga programming, and eventually graduating to things like C++ Win32/DirectX programming. I was one of the first people to jump on Game Maker when it released and continually keep my ear to the ground in pursuit of other good game engines to use. I love learning this stuff.
So now, all of these years later, I find myself wanting to graduate from casual hobby to something more. I think I have a good grasp of the programming aspect of things and would love to see my gameplay concepts (of which there are many) realized, but for now I wish to simply tag along and help other people make their dreams come true, gathering essential experience along the way.
Since I'm new to this scene, I know the drill. Current work will be pro bono, and I'm a pretty considerate and chill guy overall. I'm also really no nonsense, but will be a real joker at times too. I think fun is just as important as getting things done, ya know?
Anyways, thanks to anyone who read this, and I look forward to working with you soon!
