It's been almost 3 years now after I've left my day jobs and start my self study to making a games.
I've failed a lots and there're many time that I want to give up. "It's just to hard" or "Maybe I cannot do it" and "This is impossible after all" those word keep popping into my head from time to time and sometime it true.
For a guy who not study in any computer related field (I'm study psychology). The only class that I took which related to programming is Virtual Basic programming and I just barely passes.
So why I suddenly want to make a game?
I'm lucky that I got my work in the start up game company here in thailand during that time there is no mobile game market yet but that company was the first to done a java game in Thailand, a company name is SecondSoft, I'm working there as a tester.
Working with them I feel something inside me began to change...I want to make a game that I wanted to play. Since I'm a guy who usually not in love with a normal game so it hard to find a game that met my urge.
But making a "Game" it self are hard enough not to mention making "The Game" by myself.
Today I can finally said I make "A Game" by myself. Still not able to make "The Game".
This is a Dungeon Raid inspired game. Yes I love that game so much that I wait for a sequel but to no avail. So I make it myself.
I change the theme to zombie apocalypse and and more feature that I think it would fit.
It's fun to see my own game up and running.
I know that my game seem very inferior to other indie game, it lack originality, not mind blowing, not something brilliant or anything but it was come from my love of one game.
When you make something you love to do time sure fly.
Today I spent my time adjusting my game adding new feature and perfecting it as much as possible.
It's fun very fun and I know I made the right choice choosing this road.
I just can't wait to see what other people will think about my game after they're played it.
Maybe I'll made someone love my game...maybe not....that will be a story of future.
For now what I want to do it made it game as good as possible as my small brain can do.
Because I've finally able to make "My Game".
