I have been working on this game for about a month now. I am a beginner programmer and just out of high-school, so much of my time working on this game has been at the expense of teaching myself how to code and actually understand what I’m doing, and how to make my code better.
It’s a lot of coming up with ideas, searching google, finding code, using the code, understanding the code, and then modifying it to my liking. I’m always in the Unity Scripting Reference looking at how stuff works.
So far this Summer I have been prototyping my first game I also bought a domain name for my company, and also registered a DBA(Doing Business As) with my company name.
Now I continue to work on this game, so that I have an actual something to sell. 😛
I will try to keep y’all posted as I work and also give you more insight on my feelings and learnings as I go so maybe you can have a smoother ride than me. Not to say my ride is that bumpy at all. Probably just young adult emotions or something, hell if I know. I just push on.
As I am making these games and teaching myself to code I am also living with my parents, which me and my parents agreed that I am not going to college, and instead going to start my own company. They will pay my rent, car, etc. As long as I work 9-5 every day Mon-Fri. I’d say I am very lucky, because I get to do what I love, Not have to pay for schooling(which I think paying for is dumb for IT stuff, since in all we have google…), and I get to start my own company 😀
Sometimes it does get hard, and feelings of self doubt do get in my mind but I try to stay as positive as I can and just push on. Sometimes I get bummed out, because my car doesn’t have any gas in it ever and I always feel insignificant always asking my parents for money. I just have to look myself in the mirror and tell myself “Caden Burleson, anything is possible. If you want something, then reach out and grab it” I try to tell myself little things like this to calm my mind. Also hanging out with my Lovely girlfriend also helps calm me, she always puts me in a good mood.
So If you are feeling down about yourself, then just figure out what the problem is and try to solve it. If It can’t be solved at this time, then hang around nice, friendly, people, who you love that can cheer you up in your endeavors.
Don’t let anything get you down.
You are whatever you want to be.
Chase your dreams.
Push on! If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
I wish everyone the best with their games, etc.
