Firstly let me introduce myself. I'm a 22 year old 3rd year student studying Game Software Development (read design) at Glasgow Caledonian University.
I have been a long time listener first time caller of GameDev and have been following the community journals in the hope of finding motivation from others work, and what great work has come from the users of this site.
I hope that by having somewhere to publically post my efforts and the resulting end product that I can motivate myself to produce a portfolio that would allow me to work in the games industry, either level design or my love that is programming.
So heres to an eventful, productive and happy new year to all!
