I wanted to write a quick update here for all of you that don’t read the twitter feed. In the past two months I’ve been pretty busy with life, and my game development efforts have taken a hit as a result. Such is the life of a solo developer. My wife and I bought our first home in December and just finished getting all of our stuff moved over. We also had a friend staying with us during that time who was having some issues in his personal life and needed a place to stay for a while. He has since moved out, and while we still have a bit of unpacking to do at the new house, my office is all set up. Next week life should return to something close to normal and I can get this crazy game development train back up and running at full speed.
For now though, I am at PAX South. I’ve never been to a convention of this size before, and never to one that wasn’t aimed at professionals. I’m excited to see what all goes on at a place like this, and to check out the booths of my fellow (if a bit more successful) developers. I would like to eventually present at a convention like this one, and while I’m not quite ready yet, I wanted to come take a look at how they work from the other side first. This way I can soak it all in and see what it’s like without the stress of having to run a booth as well. A little vacation after what’s gone on in the past couple of months won’t hurt either.
I’m going to try and stay active during this event, on twitter during the day and maybe a recap each night. I’m already feeling excited and ready to jump back into my work when I get back. For now though, I have to get going; I’m sure the line is already a mile long.
