Hello anyone who is reading this,
It’s me again I rarely write anything here because I don’t think anybody cares but sometimes it helps to write down how things are progressing and I guess you could say I did progress in some ways and retrogress in others.
First thing is first GTA a game that I won’t let go of anytime soon it’s the game I had the most fun working on from all my games and I will keep working on it when the time is right it’s on hold for now for there have been quite some interesting and new things happening with me.
Now RandomizeRize is an idea we had a long time ago and it started with us wanting to make dump youtube videos and we might do that one day but in the end of January there was a little thing called GlobalGameJam and out local GamingLab (free game making related academic center) was hosting it I convinced my friends that we should all join in it was me of course Hazem Huzayen and my friends from Highschool Hamza Jaradat, Yazeed Shourdom and Ahmad Alabed the only one with any game development experience was Ahmad and they weren’t that much.
And for I didn’t really care about winning or making something unique I just wanted to have fun with my friends once we were there and the jam started things changed we started brainstorming thinking ideas and trying to figure out something interesting and I got this weird rush this push of enthusiasm that I have lost for a while and I saw the sparks in there eyes and it was MAGNIFICENT we got the idea and we got to work and we tried to make something interesting we used Unity even though I didn’t really know that much but people there helped quite a bit and I also met new people experienced and integrated in the industry which also opened my eyes more to this world getting reviews and critique from people like that was new to me even getting marketing advice is something that I never really considered .
So for all of the above you now know why I put GTA on hold there are many problems with that game mainly it’s made with Adobe Flash which is becoming absolute I won’t abandon this game I have put a lot of effort and sleepless nights but for the mean time there are more important things at hand starting in the end of May I will work more closely on RandomizeRize learn more of Unity to move on from Flash not completely it’s still something I’d rather appreciate but sometimes we need to keep up with the current so we can survive and reach the waterfall.
Thanks for reading random stranger (no-one) I hope you got anything from this information centered around ME (self interested me)
