I AM SO FREAKIN EXCITED!!! YOU KNOW WHY??? NO?!? WELL LET ME TELL YOU!
Okay, gotta stop talking in all caps. Sorry about that *sweat-drop* So the news I have is a major one (or for me it is).
Here lately I've been thinking more and more about college, and how I really need to get in if I'm gonna do something with my life before I'm, like, pushing 30 ('cause we all know how fast time flies these days). So I'm shooting for the Art Institute, because if I'm gonna go into something and do it for the rest of my life, then by golly I'm gonna do something I love! So, that's when art comes in... Because I don't have to go to school to be an awesome writer, I'm livin that part of my dream right now XD But art is something I would like to take to the next level, but after looking at the college courses I came at a cross-road...
I could either go into Animation work, or be a Game Designer. Both are some things I would love to do in life, but can only do one...
So I was stressing a bit on my choice there... Until... UNTIL!
I so happened to come across something that literally blew my mind.
Now, let me start from the beginning here....
As most of you know, I'm a hugely into Youtube LP Gamers. They inspire me so much, and make me laugh when my life is crumbling from my own problems at homes. They help me escape out of my issues and into whatever world they're playing in, and I love it. So much. Some may not understand, but then again, we're all different and all cope with problems in different ways - and this is my way.
So I've recently been watching such a Youtuber that goes by the name of Markiplier - and this guy inspires me SO MUCH. Seriously, he's an amazing guy! But the other day, I was watching one of his Let's Plays and he was talking about the game he was playing and how it was free and that it was made by a free gaming engine...
This picqued my curiosity instantly. So I dwelved and googled a bit and found a page that literally made my jaw drop as I read its contents. It's like it gave me the keys to my own secret getaway out of the cross-road I was standing in!
YOU DON'T EVEN HAVE TO GO TO FREAKIN SCHOOL TO MAKE A LEGIT VIDEO GAME!!
Seriously! I'm not even joking!
The page held all of the information I needed, even answered some of the questions that had been plaguing my mind! IT WAS A MIND-READER!!! O.O
... Wait, no it wasn't. But pretty close. So I realized that I can make a video game from my own laptop or tablet even - and it would all be free. Wouldn't cost me a penny outta my pocket! I can even sell my game if I want to (which, my first game I want it to be free since I'm a newbie xP)
You know those game apps you see on phones or tablets? Those are games that I could create if I wanted too xP All I need is to draw my own stuff - and check, I can do that. This is so awesome!! I'm so excited and happy! XD
I could very well make my dreams come true if I focus on this enough - which I'm gonna try to do!
