So at the end of my last post I mentioned that I had to put my li’l prototype on hold to “handle some real-life stuff”. Well, by that I meant travel to Shanghai to attend GDC China.
Since I haven’t talked even a little about the things going on in my life, aside from the results of me slamming on the keyboard over and over, this may seem a bit unusual.
In reality, it’s been my hope for some time to get a job in China, outside of the obvious path of teaching English; I’ve received very, very mixed feedback on how feasible this goal is (ranging from “it should be extremely easy”, to “are you out of your mind”), so I’ve decided to just, well, dive in, and see for myself what happens.
Over the next several days, things are gonna be real hectic and crazy. Suffice it to say I won’t be blogging then. Even past GDC, though, I won’t really have time to work on my side-stuff for a while, as I’ll be in 100% networking/travel mode. So, I thought, instead of being just another boring ol’ dev-blog, I’d fill up the time by actually having opinions on things. And then writing about them.
I know, I know. It’s a big step. But I think I’m ready.
