So, I'm sure a lot of you are still excited for The Underworld's Cello this year. Before you worry, yes, I'm still making it.
But, this year? This year was a bit of a failure for me.
Last year, I agreed to make a game for a Youtube channel called MC Jams for a flat rate. Over the course of last year and recently, I've enjoyed learning how to make an android game alongside TUC. The bad news is, however, is that his crew is shrinking and his channel is slowly dying. That, and I've learned he's paying a crew to make games while I, a lone programmer, was making my project with a LOT more time than my agreed payment. So, the game began to stagnate. Soon, I will drop the project entirely, give him the source code and project files, and focus on the completion of TUC, but a lot of time making it was put into it, so this is the main reason it won't be out this Halloween.
Another failure? My job situation.
All year round, I've been trying to get a job. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science and I wanted to put it to work. The problem? Well, I never had a job. No experience. And, of course, when you see someone as old as I am unable to have work before, employers get suspicious. So, a lot of the applications didn't make it to the interviewing phase. So, I decided to try full time jobs in other venues other than programming. I did get one last month, but it went over like a lead balloon fast. So, I'm going to try and get a part-time job and work my way up...
This year was a failure, for me and both my games. One got cancelled, the other delayed (again), and my life is in shambles to the point where I'm crying more often and have no self-esteem or self-respect for myself. Am I going to end up as a worthless NEET that won't make it through life, or will I climb out and make a name for myself somewhere? I'm betting on the latter, though the former is the biggest possibility.
