I enjoy designing new concepts and ideas for how games can be designed, especially the mechanics, which I love to design and play with in games. I also really enjoy crafting game environments, as this is essential to how players will use their character's designed mechanics to play the game.
I would say that I know a great deal of theory, and have a great level of experience playing well-designed games, but that I do not have as much experience in making them yet. I have done some projects in the past, but most were unreleased or unfinished due to one reason or another. I very much want to release a finished product for people to play and enjoy! Hopefully that can be a reality through the new connections that I hope to make in this group.
As of right now it is purely recreational fun as I am kept quite busy with schoolwork. I would love nothing more than to work in games as a professional, but I am still not 100% certain of what role I would like to play in the field.
I most enjoy 3D modeling and the design of the game itself. How a game plays (controls, abilities, player-AI interactions, etc.) is very important, and I love discussing and developing new ideas. I do program some as well, and I'd really like to learn animation, but they are not very well-developed skills in my opinion.
I enjoy playing, discussing, researching, and designing games, as well as a variety of other interests. I intend to design great games and I'd love to find like-minded people willing to work hard on game creation.
