Homeless game developers
That’s one word shy of an incredible heading. How cool would I be if I’d actually quit my job?
I wish my boss was a jerk. Then I could have etched “I QUIT” into his monitor. I could have spat my resignation in his face, literally, in morse code. My job is quite cool though, and my boss is a lovely person. Unfortunately, while I love making small games, my employer makes big games. Whatever could I do?
Today I applied for extended leave without pay. It’s a fumble in a fantastic yet frightening direction. I estimate an 80% increase in my personal game development productivity, which should raise my blog posts per year to… some. Up from none. I’ll start by posting tales of my Epic Journey of Minimalist Game Development, then flip back to announcing games once this employment business is dealt with.
I’m not going to tell you what games to expect, but I will tell you this: You’re going to need more pants.
