This post is a long time coming. Here is a update on everything that has happened and what is happening in the future.
When it all started:
Ambition is a funny thing. It can get away from you and leave you behind but in the long run you have to keep up with it. I started this project because Imagine Me is the dream game. Its a game I just wanted to deliver that was fun, simple, and exciting.
Why the Delays:
The short way to explain this is "Life got in the way."
The long way to explain this is the following:
I lacked a lot of confidence in my programming abilities. It wasn't that I wasn't capable of doing the job. It was that I wasn't sure I was "doing it right." This is something that held me back.
So now what? Are you still scared? No not at all! It took a small project to make me realize that I am able to write a decent game in less then a week! Yes, I wrote an entire game in less then a week and thats all it took for me to realize that I am doing things right and I just need to go for it.
A lot of companies approached me throughout the years and actually just had a few tell me they would sponsor my game in exchange for their company on the splash screen and a small of amount of money sent to me. During these negotiations everything went wrong and nothing went through. This happened at least 3 times.
In the long run I'm not going to bother with it an Imagine Me will only have a Unity3D splash because I support them and the game engine I use to make Imagine Me.
A Big Boy Job:
A lot of you know I worked for Activision but maybe only a few of you know that it was something that would set me back for years after I left. Financially speaking, Activision paid less then Mcdonalds and It really hurt me. I had to find a real job and after a while I finally did. I now am employed by a company called The Nerdery and its the best company I ever asked for.
Will You Just Make The Game Already? ITS BEEN YEARS!
The Game already has a framework and gameplay needs some testing but the game is on its way!! With Linux, Mac, Windows, Android, and iOS I had to do a ton of testing with this framework but now it will go quick and this will be a great game for you to just sit down, put some headphones on and relax.
I thank you for your patience. Its been years and yes this isn't the best situation for any kickstarter but I thank you for supporting my dreams and I can't wait for you to play this game and smile while playing it because I can't stop smiling while I'm making it.
