I’m Clement, an indie game developer (I’m still refreshing my C# programming skills and learning Unity). I’m also a single dad of 6 and a former engineering manager in one of Alberta’s oil patch related companies.
Why create games? Well, when I was 11, I got an Apple II, my first computer. It was the result of over a year of chores, begging, good grades and extremely good behaviour. Initially, I only wanted a computer because I wanted to play games (of course). But because it seemed interesting and because I had to show my mom that the computer was an educational tool, I decided to learn programming. Learning Basic (and Assembly)
However, though I liked programming (and games), I also liked engineering. My dad was the technical head of his school and I enjoyed visiting his workshop as a kid (reading his books and magazines.. designing and building stuff from the scrap bin). As a young adult, I had to choose; computers or engineering. Because I thought I could program games as a hobby, I chose to study mechanical engineering.
Following that, life happened and things did not work out as I had planned. Suffice to say that I found that it was nigh impossible to program as a hobby. Though I managed to learn a number of programming languages, C, C++, C#, Java, Visual Basic, etc.. and though I got to program professionally a number of times (making/saving lots of money for previous employers).. I never found the spare time to program games.
I also found that the adage “opportunity doesn’t knock twice” to be true.
So that brings me back to why I am an indie game developer. It’s time. Time I created games that I (and hopefully others) want to play.
