    Hi everyone, I thought this would be a great thread to do :)

    So, where do you see yourself in five years?

    I hopefully see myself having published at least over five games in five years time :) I'd like for my games to be on Steam and I would also love for MiffoShort Games to be a thriving and well known game company :)

    Hopefully this will be a reality in five years time :)

    What about you guys and girls?

    I hope more or less the same, more games released, to still be an actor in the indie business, and if things go really well to have either a published (not self published) novel or rock album  BD   :rock-right:

    Good luck then  :rock-right:

    In five years I'll probably have a lot of cats.

    Still here, with a lot of (hopefully good) games finished and released, and being able to turn game development into my main job. :rwink:

    Unless we get some new technology, it'll be in a mirror.

    I want to have lots of beautiful tilesets that are considered so well done that they're must haves for all RM users.  Yeah, I think that's a realistic goal.  *goes back to making tiles*

    In 5 years I still want to be making games, though I hope the games I make then to be noticeably better than what I have now. I want to look back at the games I'm making now and to see room for improvement. I am also hoping some of my series (Incitement, Atonement, possibly others) to get a bit of a name and a following among gamers.

    She probably just wants real cats. Sorry to break the bad news.

    Anyway, where do I see myself in 5 years, game dev wise? I don't have too specific goals, though I would hope to have been able to release something commercially by then. I would love to have Slimer out. Mostly I just hope that I've made significant progress in my skills and abilities.

    My goal? Have 2 games released. I'd like to have 3 done, but I set a timetable of 3 years for the big game, figuring it would be a steep learning curve.

    Probably still procrastinating on an RM project, having scrapped another dozen of them over the years, but still going at it because f*** yeah! I love that hobby.

    Oh, and I'll be 41... Really will need to have decided what I will do when I'll be a grown up :)

    Preparing the promotion for the release of RPG Maker 2020 or whatever we are working on then.

    (Seriously, if they want to get rid of me, they are going to have to fire me, I love this job).

    I was JUST thinking about making this exact same thread yesterday. Freaky!!

    Anyway, five years from now, eh? I can honestly see myself in a new location, being involved somewhere in the music industry, whether it's singing, composing, or teaching. =)

    Well personally I hope to have my actual life more stable finances, etc...

    RM related, I've been working on a couple games with them being commercial in mind and I'd hope by then I could at the least achieve that goal.

    Ok, yeah, if someone wants to pay me what I make now to make pretzels, I'd do it. Making pretzels is zen.

    I hope to be established as an electrical engineer (since I'll be done with school by 2017). I'd also hope that I'll finish one of my many projects. -_-

    Is that a threat, Mr. Anderson?


    Okay, so one "cat" wants to have a "master." ;)


    Moving on, I don't touch that even with a 100 meter pole.


    Since I'm retired and getting my pension and stuff like that. I will likely be slacking off rest of my mortal life, sharing my somewhat ignorant wisdom to the world. While trying to have various projects.
