    I have no dream, and I seem to be one of the few. What I have is a succession of hobbies.

    I believe I have an idea that could make a million dollars, easy. I understand everyone says that but id really like to send you a demo and get your opinion. Maybe I can convince you to become an investor 🙂 maybe help lead the project?

    Indie game developer is my dream. Nothing can change that. I know the risks but I have to try. Hopefully my dream comes true 🙂

    But gaming industry started with very small teams making games (like 2-7 people) so I don't think it would be that crazy to make games in the past only by yourself.

    Thanks to you guys and your support for the series, I will be investing in a better camera, mic, and stable stand for my car so no more shaky camera!! It annoys me as well as I assume it does for you.
