1 Year

Six days ago, 3/11/18, marked marximusgames.com 1 year anniversary.  As a one man team, working a fulltime job + family, my biggest take-away is that game developing requires a tremendous amount of endurance, focus, and faith.

Endurance: Getting up early, before the rest of the family, and working long after the family has gone to bed.

Focus: Sticking to one game/project/etc. over months and months.  Day 1 of anything is always exciting, sticking to a single project thru day 14, 21, 365, etc. takes everything you got.

Faith: Will all this effort pay off? Should I spend my time elsewhere?  Fighting off self-doubt is a full-time job.

In 2017, I’ve made the milestone of publishing 3 “games” at https://itch.io/profile/marximus.  Quote, ‘games’, because they are learning opportunities for myself more than a tool of entertainment for others at this point.
