Falling off the cart

May 13, 2011

Well, I did try. I tried really hard.

But nothing other than #gamedev excites me. Everything else just feels old, boring and dull.

But, while I was experimenting with non-game-related development, I realized what it is about programming that makes me tick: it’s the high I get out of learning something new, and putting simple building blocks together in new ways to make something totally new, unexpected, and just plain beautiful. And, out of this, I’ve realized that I’ve been barking up the wrong tree all this while.

I don’t want to be a gameplay programmer. I want to be a graphics programmer.

If I may quote The Dark Prince, “Onwards and upwards!”
