Enjoying the Single Life

After ECPI University…

I tried to join a few starting video game companies.  For a while, I blogged about my time with my first video game company.  This company had a name already registered, a few people willing to join, and a few marketing deals with a few other companies.  Unfortunately, people within the company lost interest and fell off the face of the Earth, the lesser skilled people did not want to put the time in to better themselves, and then left the company and I was still in Sam’s Club getting annoyed with the lack of dedication from others.

I finished my work within a week, while others were ready to talk about the mmorpg they finished playing and not the 3D work they were supposed to finish weeks ago.

My other game company….was in the same boat as the previous video game company but this company had dedicated people willing to work for free before the company took off.  Believe it or not, I actually used this website to convince the manager to “hire” me on his team for character concept work.  He had me do landscape concept work instead. Unsurprisingly, he found my landscape artwork to be unimpressive and would wonder why I was so bad at drawing landscapes.   Eventually, I ended up leaving the company.

I Was Angry…

There was a few times when I could have joined some companies that were starting but could pay me immediately.  The first company I mentioned had a good way of talking me into not joining any other company because, one day, the company would grow and have a lot of benefits for me in the future.  Well first company sunk due to the manager becoming broke and I have no idea what’s going on with the previous companies I mentioned.

I’m Fine With Just Getting Help With Music and Beta Reading… 

As of right now, for writing, drawing, advertising, and programming, I have me, myself, and I to that work.  I have two people for music and two offline people for beta reading/playing.  I think I like this team and I wouldn’t ask for more.   I just wanted to reflect on some bad choices that I have gone through in the past.  I often slowed down my work on my visual novel and writing in order to help out with the other game companies.  Well, not anymore and, this year, I hope to finish my first visual novel.
