    Hey there, mid-term lurker who thought it prudent to finally make an account! I'm currently a University student learning the ins and outs of Games Design and Creative Writing whose fiddled around with the RPG Maker programs for a good few years now, but never made anything substantal or publishable (not counting those terrible first time releases back when I was 13 that mysteriously were burned away in my old computer).

    After finishing up a fairly draining summer project, I've decided to invest my free time into a game I'm actually setting out to finish to keep me busy and in the right mindset. Well, first game that wasn't a project for my University I've even actually written out a plan this time instead of pulling every step out of my arse and winging it from there.

    Bold new strategy, I know.

    It has a high likelyhood of being a disaster in the end, but ten again, you can never really know how to do something rihgt until you've done it wrong... A couple hundred times.

    So, hello, I'm me and I can't wait to cosntantly pester you guys for every step I slip up on.

    lol, reading this makes me want to go back and rewrite my intro! :p

    This is just the opposite for me, I have plans in my head (and some on paper) of games I plan to make one day. With this, I am just winging it and seeing what comes out.

    Hey, it's just a forum intro. Nothing in need of rewrites :D

    Some people can make that work, but I find that method usually leads to easy burn out and tempting procrastination. Or maybe I'm just unmotivated because I didn't start actually completing games and other projects until people started giving me deadlines and guidelines. lol

    And I hope you'll tolerate me when I poke for help ten tiimes a day :D
