Hi I'm Daniel, i wasn't around during the nes/snes era of games, i grew up with N64/PS1, GBC/GBA and GC/PS2 era of games.
I discovered classic games through emulation and recent generations of game consoles distributing them though digital downloads.
I grew up a pretty poor life, and one of the highlights of my youth was getting lost in the realm of videogames. My first spark of interest in developing games started when i was around 12, because my older brother, who is very talented at pixel art, introduced me to programs like RPG Maker 2003.
At first i just had a childish fantasy of making a successful game whenever i was making a sub-par DragonQuest like RPG. After a while i realized that making a good game others can enjoy is my life dream and goal, even if it isn't successful. Just the thought of my ideas coming to life and others enjoying it was more than enough to motivate me to make a good game
I never had enough money to take a college course, and it is extremely difficult finding steady work in the economically dead area i live in, unless you have connections through a relative or friend. My older brother tried to make it on his own by working on game projects with online friends of his, but things didn't work out due to creative differences and working long distance.
Finally in the past year we discovered Construct 2 through a forum, and it met our every need. My imagination exploded with great ideas, and my brother and I officially decided to dedicate our lives full time to making games. We are currently in the very early stages of developing our first game, but we are hoping to reach a goal of finishing it by the fall.
Theres my story, and i hope i meet a lot of awesome people with good ideas in a seemingly friendly community
