ze questions so far

It's late, I'm tired, my reflexes are shot, I'm finishing food, I may as well answer a few of these things. Here goes.

"What is your job? Lame question, but I don't think I actually know."

Game programming! w00t. I'm working at Snowblind Studios (and considering replacing their webpage, heh, because it SUCKS.) Mostly I'm doing the stuff that's really deep in the system, like texture compression and map generation and polygon reduction and other stuff.

"What do you see yourself doing in ten years?"

Game programming! w00t.

(It's like deja vu all over again!)

No, seriously. What I want to be doing is *designing* the games, instead of just being a programmer. I want to be the guy coming up with universes and play mechanics, and designing all that (and implementing stuff when I run out of decisions to make, but that's all secondary.) I want to make fun things for people to play in, which leads nicely to my next question . . .

"What is the single most driving passion in your life?"

Two things, that I can't really unextricate. People and imagination. I want to make things that last forever, and ironically, created universes and stories are the only things that sort-of do - they'll never be any less real than they are when I make them. And I like people, and I want to make them happy. The two work together rather nicely in a lot of ways, because, in theory at least, I can make games that people will enjoy. And everything's good.

The last question (so far) is basically impossible to answer without giving away who asked it, so I won't - I'm answering it privately :P

Ask more stuff!
