And that makes me feel good inside. I made something really good. I played Diner Dash about a week ago. It was cute and I thought that the game action mirrored the "real world" theme perfectly, but I thought it was just lacking somewhere. I uninstalled before hitting the 60-minute limit, and I didn't feel compelled to buy the thing.
Anyway, it's a bit like the scene in The Fountainhead in which the hero designs a set of townhouses (for a fraudulent builder, but that's a subplot unto itself). Shortly after the job was complete, the hero was sitting a few blocks away admiring his handiwork when someone happened by and admired the houses, unaware that he was talking to the designer.
Okay, it's not quite like that, and my life's not nearly as shmaltzy as an Ayn Rand novel, but having my work recognized by people who enjoy it is more important to me than having it recognized by folks only interested in its marketability.
