What do you like most about creating games?

Creating immersive experiences that let you live in the stories you've always wanted to. Making a game snappy, smart, and responsive to the player. It's all about the interaction after all!

How would you describe your level of experience in game development?

Worked with RPG Maker for 14 years, now at a moderately advanced level. Beginning programming experience. Studied game design theory extensively.

Is game creation something you do for fun, or is it more of a professional interest? Please describe.

A professional interest. The only job I've ever wanted was to be a game developer. Never went through the astronaut/firefighter stage.

What part of game dev are you most into? Programming, animating, AI, 3D modeling, marketing, etc?

Design, mechanics, writing, storytelling; also industry and positioning (market)

Introduction

I focus on the theory and practice of how to make games fun the whole time! What are the mechanics that make a game simply good? I can keep the player in the flow, drawing from theory across all of the humanities and of course using some math.
