My Little Game Dev Forum
This forum was particularly inspiring because I was browsing this when I came up with the idea of making my project feature unicorns and elemental magic. I actually posted there days before I mentioned it on the blog. It's a place where brony developers talk about their projects and collaborate. Brony developers are particularly interesting to me because they generally seem to be on the same level as me. Looking at indies in general makes me feel a bit small because so many indie teams are producing awesome flashy stuff that I'm not capable of.
The things I see on Equestria Gaming however, are more my speed. Just one or a few people working on fan games and mods while in school. I can relate more to that than indies doing Kickstarters, taking loans, and working on games full-time. It's that humble feeling that pushes me forward. Seeing my peers working toward a similar goal makes my own goal seem not so impossible to reach.
I basically wanted to give a shoutout to the development forum I frequent the most in hopes that more people discover it and increase the size of the community. Keeping up with the other great projects over there is becoming a hobby of mine. This community got me interested in game development in the first place, so it's only fitting that my first completed passion project is based on the show that inspired the community.
