Hey all, I've had my dreams of grandeur for making games for quite some time, though I have never really started to pursue it until now. I realize it's not as easy as it may seem, but the challenge is what intrigues me.
I'm an applied and computational mathematics major, so my schooling focused on abstract math, computations and the basics of computer science...and now almost five years after graduating I got the bright idea that I may be the makings of a game developer. I am currently a 3rd year software engineer for Rockwell Collins.
Any who, I like to ramble so back to the subject. I saw Construct tossed around on various game dev sites and forums, especially when game jams were the subject. Though I plan to focus my efforts on learning more C++, I want to get my feet wet with actually creating a game and hope Construct helps me to get there. I'm sort of a practitioner of many and master of none, but I plan to stick with building games.
I also like cars, and music; Akai mpc200XL and FL Studio. I've sort of been on a hiatus from gaming and focusing on music lately, but favorite games: Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell (Xbox), Need For Speed Underground(Xbox), BioShock series (360), NIghts (Sega Saturn), Virtua Tennis and NFL2k6 on Dreamcast.
