Hello! I've been registered for quite some time actually but never took time to post until recently XD Except for back in the day some noobish post from a very old terrible project from who knows how long ago
Anyway, I'm a college kid now. My gaming years started with SNES which my parents bought before I was born. I never quite grew out of that game system, I still play it more than my Wii. Earthbound for SNES is still without a doubt my biggest influence in game creation-
It just has that lovely dare to be different feel that I love. I have so many fond memories of playing it as a kid. I played Mother 3, but I beleive it lacks the awesome happy yet awesome feel of Earthbound. There'll never be another EB...
My second biggest influence has to be the Animal Crossing series in general.
When I was in 7th Grade I got Animal Crossing Wild World for Christmas. I was instantly hooked. I played it from then until I lost during the next fall
Probably best or else I might still be playing it now... I tried playing City Folk and such but it was unsuccessful in holding my interest long enough like Wild World did. I beleive some of the magic was gone since I was almost an adult when City Folk came out.
So to be completely honest, I think a lot of my projects are just me attempting to recreate those awesome times I had with those 2 games.
But outside of my gaming life...well notice I didn't talk much about current games?
To be honest I don't play video games much anymore. I'm usually busy doing something else, like playing Banjo or working or college. I'm a blue grass addict
I play a banjo myself and have plans to learn to play a Dobro.
I'm always on a quest for knowledge in hopes to discover something new. I am going to college to get Agricultural Education and Cultural Anthropology (with emphasis on Archaeology). I plan to double major in these subjects and get certified to teach Ag. at a high school level.
The reason I design games is because I love story telling. The reason I love doing open world games is because I pretty much just make a world with small stories and then the player makes the rest. It's an excuse for me to be creative, so I take it. Right now I'm working on a project that's going through some name pending...I beleive I may call 'The Hobo Detective in: The Curse Of The Swamp Monster'. It's a mix of Animal Crossing and...uh well some EB humor? And a detective Game I never played? Plus some Harvest Moon Stuff? Which I never played either.
Either way, if you've seen me on TDC I go by Wiiman, but Wii's not so cool anymore
And I'm not a fangamer like the old days so I decided to use my real name here. Anyway, I'm hoping that maybe I can get some games out there and then one day sell a few on the side for money. I also look forward to meeting everyone on Tig!
