I've been listening to indie game dev podcasts for years now but thee topics feel more relatable than ever. Once you get a grasp on Unity and releasing projects the things that once seemed out of your league are not so mysterious and unattainable anymore. While I haven't been able to get much work done lately, I have been listening to the words of wisdom from others to get me through the mountains of schoolwork.
There is something really reassuring about hearing people doing the same thing as you fighting just as hard. Plenty of people are working jobs they hate for little money and taking whatever hours are left in the day to work on game projects they love. That story never gets old. I just really wish I knew people like that in person. Pretty ironic since I attend a school with a game development major. I'd like to do something to meet developers and talk face-to-face.
I'd like to attend PAX East next year or the year after, just to get a feel for it. I think I'd be good to go as a guest before attending with my own panel. I'd see cool things, meet people, and just open up some good opportunities. Especially if I let people know what I'm all about.
