I quit my job on Monday.
Very much so. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. It feels good – no, great. No, fantastical. Yes, fantastical! My eyes got a little watery on my last drive home from work, but not because I was upset. No no noooo, They were tears of joy, tears of being free from the frustrations and annoyances of working for people who refuse to open their eyes.
Speaking of work: we were in the process of finishing up the last bits of Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light. I’ve been working on it for about a year now. It’s a great game and you should at least play the demo. Not many people realize this, but I pitched and prototyped the last 2 projects the studio produced. So for recognition I get to watch other people be flown around and interviewed while I’m told I need to stay late and come in on Saturdays. No thank you.
I learned a ton while working with a lot of wonderfully smart people. BUT, I’d rather have control over my life, be able to create my own work schedule, have the freedom to do as I please and develop whatever games I want.
That’s why I’m “going indie.”
What’s next you ask? Prototyping. Finishing some small games for you to play. Working on bigger games for you to play. And enjoying my life, my friends, and my family.
See you soon.
