- 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
- It's a challenge like nothing else I've done before. I wanted to prove to myself that I could do it
- 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
- 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
Next blog post - I've made a game - how?
