Or "Why I make games"
A friend once told me he had no idea why people enjoy games: why spend your free time in something "not relaxing"?
My answer was... because it's fun.
Okay, maybe that's the summarized version. I went on and on about player satisfaction and experience, but the core was that: It's just very fun.
And when I decided to make games a career, that was the reason. I want to create fun experiences and discover what fun ultimately is.
So, be it a puzzle game, a visual novel or a platformer, let's have fun!
