I've been a member since 2001. Not really posting that much lately.

 

It is true that the indie game development did not work out financially in the end for me (save for few yrs).

 

But thanks to the game development hobby (and the out-of-the-box attitude / skills it forces upon you), I got a chance to prove myself when working in an offshore team and researched&developed a new algorithm that is now being used in production.

 

That resulted in me being transferred with my family to USA (first on visas, then I got a green card) and now I'm working in a non-game company with 37.5 work-week (a huge change to offshore practices).

 

 

So, it did take some time for the skills [I gained in this hobby] to manifest, but it all worked out pretty well in the end.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, I don't *dream big* with my games anymore, since the costs of living in NY/NJ are so high that even if my new game made $1M, it's still a far cry from retirement.

That would be like - OK, I can retire 5 yrs sooner - maybe even at 60-65 ?

Yeah, I still lurk. Way earlier than 2003, though, I think. I won one of those 3H-GDC competitions (sticky in the screenshot) back in the day.

I'm not around much any more.  My contribution for memory lane was the fastest growing thread I had seen: OMFG Jesus = Hitlar

If you were here then you'll probably remember it...

Does anybody remember the pink gang? Though that may have been 2004.

I had a different username in those days.
