29 year old Canadian dude who likes to make games. I used to drink while I made them, but that got out of control after a while, so now I'm in AA. Oh yeah, and I've had schizophrenia for the past 6 years. I've been stable on meds for 3, close to four years. Due to my situation I live with my mom, sister and niece, and I am on benefits to cover 100% of the $1800 in medication I take every month.
Programming in C#, Java, PHP, Python, and more. I prefer to use C# and Unity, as I've been using them for close to 7 years, except for a couple years in the middle where I was working on finding a medication regime that worked well. I can barely do vector art in Inkscape, but I can make decent enough art for me to prototype with more than just blocks. I also look out for free CC0 art that I can use to make my games look better.
I want to just make a bunch of small games, in rapid succession, until I find something that I can expand on well enough to get a job working remotely that will cover my medication and bring in a bit more than the small amount the government gives me. The plan is to replace being on reddit with making games and keeping myself busy, and sober.
