As the year is coming to end I think it’s good idea to remind yourself about why you are making games. I believe there are many reasons from passion, overcoming technical challenges to creative reasons, and my reason is this: I like doing games.
I like playing with the code and building stuff, and make things happen at screen. I simply like making games – it’s “something I’ve always wanted to do”, and that’s the reason I’m doing this.
While money is important, I don’t think there’s no point in making games only to make money. I believe there’s plenty of better paying jobs (especially for indies) so money cannot be the main motivator. I believe passion comes first, and profits after that.
What’s your reason for doing games?
