I have always been interested how companies work, especially game development businesses. My dream job was to work in the financial department of some game development company.
As I was growing up, I played around with Delphi Pascal and 3d Studio Max, HTML, but I didn’t really make anything substantial, just really basic stuff... It was just something I did for fun after school/college.
So yeah, I studied Financial Economics in university (with the idea of being an accountant). After, I spent a summer learning C++ and then did Masters in Business Information Systems. During that time I found about this site. It really helped me with some of my projects even though they were not game related.
Afterwards, I realized that I want to make one game. However this “dream” game seemed something impossible for me. I had to become a much more productive and knowledgeable person to be able to make it. (Something between Castle Story and Stonehearth) So I joined my small family business. We needed a website, so I made one. Then I started to sell online (eBay, Amazon, my own site). From time to time, I make my own websites/tools to help me out.
All of this so that I can made my dream game someday. Well it’s been 4.5 years since having my idea. I failed to make my dream game 2 times now. However I did make a complete 2D space shooting game. Now trying to make it as a releasable product.
