Eight years of game development

6 Mar 2016 / 7:40 pm / general

Today marks eight years of game development for me. I downloaded Game Maker from the old YoYo Games website on March 6th, 2008, and since, I've had a phenomenal journey from being someone who wanted to make games to becoming the programmer and entrepreneur I am today.

I've met some amazing people along this road, and not only have they helped shape me to be the person I am today, some of them have become my greatest friends. I wouldn't have ever started indie(Function);, or met half the people I know had I never found Game Maker all those years ago. I can't imagine how boring my life might have been if Game Maker hadn't have showed up in those search results.

Here's to another great eight years of game development, programming, and meeting all the creative people out there. Let's hope we can continue advancing technology and creating art and experiences that make an impact.
