Just a moment ago I told myself that. My life is busy now...
Beside normal school/work stuff, I just started an indie game project after many discussions with my roommate about the gaming industry. This happened 2 weeks ago.
My internet went out for no less than 6.5 days since then. That gave me the chance of finishing A Storm of Swords and moving on to A Feast for Crows. I also did a quick review on C++ as well as get myself used to the SFML library of which I plan to use for my game project.
Along the way, books and articles and online courses popped up. Computer Graphic, Machine Learning, HTML5 application.... all suddenly became so relevant, so interesting. I found myself either diving into a sea of undocumented code or drowning in the fancy vocabulary that A Song of Ice and Fire has to provide.
I missed twitch, I also missed dota and I really hate it to let my progression in ixDL go to waste. But the greed of having your own game 'engine', the thirst for rights to criticize other game developers are bottomless pits. And I am falling deeper.
Cant talk much about my dream since ideas keep materializing one after the other just like animals mating post winter. I will keep my goal short and reachable though, I must. Assets will be the pain in the ass and I will be using a ton of place holders which could be found on open source communities.
In fact, why am I even wasting time on writing this blog? I could be reading A Feast of Crows right about now... Hope Valve gona come up with something good so I could go back and play DotA
