I was in 7th standard when my father bought me a computer. As a kid, my only interest in the computer was playing games. Luxor, Road rash, Zuma were games that I played first and then some more cool games like GTA: Vice City, Prince of Persia, and so on.
While playing games, I thought
what If I could make a game that has characters that I've designed, rules that I've created, and then play it
I then researched how one can make a game and what study is required to do so. Based on that I decided that I would be a software engineer and develop games.
Well, my only concern and desire were playing and creating games but as soon as I entered the real world, I realized that there are many more cool things we can develop including games and it made me a developer.
But yes, in this journey, I've developed my first game in C using the graphics library which was not easy for me but anyway I have done that.
Here is the video of that game. Though it's not good enough, there are flickers also in the game and there are many patches in the game to make it work, it's very special to me. And I am very happy and fortunate that I am in a field I have an interest in.
I have developed this game many years ago and I can improve it to a very good level still I like it the way it is... so I never touched it since then. Maybe the incompleteness and flaws of this game are making it perfect. It reminds me of my dreams, imaginations, and the golden time of imaging this stuffs.
Here is the Github repo for that game.
What's your story, What made you a developer or whatever you are?
