The goal in your life.
« on: May 03, 2011, 07:32:28 AM »
What's your life goal?

Mine is to get enough surplus money (15.000-25.000 euros) so I can afford to pay a programmer to develop the (free) action-roguelike I planned on paper (since almost a decade).
Currently I am not in a good situation because even if I have a degree I live in a country which has been hit hard by recession and things don't look good, but at the same time I really like investing in stock market, commodities, etc and until now I'm performing good so who knows :-)

I also would love to go live in a house in front of the sea, but let's this be goal #2 because it's way expensive here (at least 10 times than goal #1!).

Goal #3 is to travel in south-east Asia (I'm always been fascinated by those countries: Thailand, Cambodia, Philippines, etc).

Tell me about you!

Get rich, get girls and stuff. But while I'm waiting for that to happen my goal is in game design.

Stability with regards to a place to live and all else, reliable income for delicious food/survival, purchases, and micro-financing/bounty paying---generally I want to be in a situation where I can focus on everything/what little that stimulates me because the rough bits otherwise are well enough in hand for some peace of mind.

I'd like to become landed gentry. Little organic garden, a good life with my girl, and enough time to enjoy it. And it would be neat to make a roguelike. Lately I've become fascinated by the shape of the castle in the old Vampire Hunter D anime, and I couldn't help but design the mythos around this probably never-to-be-created game. It would be good to make good on some of the promises I've made myself.

I'll settle for landed gentry, though.

Wouldn't that be the goal in your afterlife?

Why not do it yourself?

You are in luck because these are very cheap countries to visit!

Thank you for your interest :-)
Good question. Basically because I know nothing about programming and I've never been good in the physical realization of things, I'm more good in the ideation/engineering process (which I like a lot). Furthermore I'm sure my time will be more productive (in total game development terms) earning the money to fund a programmer than programming it myself; I'll do my best to earn a shitload of cash so that I'll be able to create this game and also contribute to the roguelike scenario (let's this be goal #4 haha).

I don't know what the scale you are planning is, but 15-25k euros is not enough money to have someone else make the game for you, at least not if your plan is to eventually have a game that can make at least that much back (and therefor also need stuff other than programming, e.g. graphics and music).

That's possible, but I don't think cost will go much higher because I need only a very simple graphic and then a content editor so that I can add every "module", item and situation by myself.
Anyway, it's too soon to worry about this :-)

Finish thesis, get academic post, make Ultima Ratio Regum popular. And learn to make a good curry. That's important :)
