So this crazy, wild-haired troll gave me a quest, “Hey code monkey, you have a weird beard like me, and I charge you to make a video game.”

“Sorry, I have never coded a ga…”

“Fear not, you will learn,” and then he disappeared.

To be honest, I don’t know if he said “fear not” or “fear a lot,” but the former makes more sense even if I felt the later.  I started my journey on 26 February 2019.  Now I have written code for the past 30+ years, and I taught myself all the various languages I know.  However, up until this point I only created line of business software.  But when a wild-haired troll gives you a quest you kinda have to go with it.

Let’s do this thing!

What is a game dev that doesn’t make the gaming world a better place — WeirdBeardDev


Published by WeirdBeardDev

One day a crazy, wild-haired troll gave me a quest to create a video game. I know C# so I armed myself with Unity and a load of game dev tutorials so I can go questing. Now I call myself a "game dev" and pretend like I have a clue. :)

    I’ll be following along for the ride!
