I've made a game - why?

I've made a game for iPhone, it's called Rebounder. This is a series of blog posts about it.
  1. I've made a game
  2. Why?
  3. How?
  4. Some of the challenges
  5. What did I learn?

Why?

  1. First and foremost I wanted to make something. Software development is about creating stuff. Most developers, including myself, spend their lives creating software for other people, making other people's ideas. I wanted to come up with an idea of my own and then create it. In my opinion this one of the most rewarding and exciting things you can do as a software developer
  2. It's a challenge like nothing else I've done before. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it
  3. I've been a gamer for a long time. I've spent a long time talking about what makes games good and what makes games bad. Part of me has always wanted to try and make a game
  4. Lastly I thought there was a small chance of making some money. I know, I know, pretty unlikely, but I would rather try and fail than not try at all
