Growing up, my gambling exploits were funded by my parents My family was not rich and I was the third child of four children I started to represent myself in negotiations when I was ten, arguing that, as it looked like I would never own any new clothes, I could maybe get paid for this by having an extra set or two every year. My parents made me laugh at the courthouse Ignored Case dismissed I think I, at 10 years, I couldn't quite understand that the reason I had clothes in my hand, it was because the money was tight
Therefore, when it came to games, I had to make my choices matter It meant buying the same game everyone else in school Now that I'm technically an adult – 5’10 is respectable – I fund my own gambling habit It’s a hobby that has allowed me to aggressively move away from triple A titles in search of healthier experiences. This is the type of gaming experience that I learn that only independent versions can give me. I am an artist by profession, working in multiple fields – hence the strong current of pomposity in my writing – and every month, I want to share my discoveries with you
I want to help promote upcoming indie games that provide a great service to our industry I'm looking for solo stories, beautifully presented and full of heart January is still calm but for now, here is a peak of what we can expect this year…
