Well then: this is it. I am closing the topci to Pitiri 1977. It´s been (and I actually mean it) a hell of more than 2 years. I´m talking about tears... a lot of tears - sometimes of happiness, sometimes of "Oh god I hat this f#*§$ing machine so much I want to implement a bomb and destroy it 5 times in a row"-iness. I guess this is something that will never change. Either you develop games or you don´t.
I remember the day I decided to start developing (again). I´ve been on an 3D internship in Los Angeles. To all the guys from california in this forum: For Austrian people - California still is this DREAM place. And to be honest: it was! I´ve been there with a couple of friends from University. Some stayed in Del Mar, some in La. And we had the time of our lifes. I learned how to surf (more or less ...), I´ve met some FANTASTIC people from behind the scene (3d geeks, camera people, directors,...). Most of them started with indie movies - some of them want to make indie movies again!
So the other day I was sitting in front of my computer and thought: well... I really want to try this Multimedia fusion...again (I´ve tried it 10 years ago: klick n play). My roommate wanted me to go to a party with him. He just could not understand why I´d prefer to stay at home - nerding on the computer - than go to this party with him. After he left, I felt like a loser, like a geek, like a 15 year old nerd with no friends playing videogames the whole night - I mean I´ve been there. I´ve really been there: with 12 and with 13 and with 14. Now things have changed. I mean I have been to one of the "coolest" places on earth and I decided to stay at home, trying (just trying) to create a little game. Maybe a space shooter or a platformer. So I downloaded the demo of Multimedia fusion 2 and started to click...
I think it´s in us. Whatever you might do now. If you are studying, an actor, a singer, if you work in a bank or in the hospital. I think if you´ve "BEEN THERE" once, you´ll always go back there. Maybe there´s a NERD gene or something - I dont know But I honestly REALLY REALLY feel proud to be part of this (very long) missunderstood scene. I´m very proud to be one of you guys!
Thank you, for staying yourself!
See you working on the next game!
