The worst fact is that one is BIGGER than the other one.

I really love voice acting, and enjoy directing a talented team in my visual novel and RPG Maker projects. My goal is to one day, when my brother gets skillful enough in GZDOOM Builder, we shall make a TC and it will have voice acted cutscenes! (As making a TC will be the closest I can get to making an FPS haha). 

 

Is that why your pfp has a tape across its mouth? :P

 

...Just kidding, my bad, just kidding.

 

Nonetheless, that actually sounds quite interesting, and pretty nice noentheless! I wish you best of luck reaching your goals :)

Stupid fact-
I have been playing doom since I was 4 since I have no friends

 

Pffff! I have been playing classic Unreal Tournament since before I entered school (I was born in 2003). That did not at all tamper my social enterprises. Maybe it did make my childhood a tad more hyperactive, although I bet it'd be the same with Doom anyways.

I second @InDOOMnesia about trying itch.io! I use that site to post my games on. Another way to really get attention to your games is making games during game jam periods. Game jam entries can often garner a lot more attention since fellow devs like to see what other people submitted, etc. You should also share them on forums that allow you to share your creative works. If the engine(s) you use have an official forum especially, they usually have a board dedicated to announcing your own game releases.

Social networking is the key here. Make a twitter account, make an instagram account, maybe faff with the other SN's, and regularly post development screenshots, fascinating experiments and other such stuff. You can also stream your development on twitch, and also slowly build up a discord server.

 

If you release your games for free on platforms like itch.io more people will likely play, too. Gaining publicity can be a full time job in itself, and it's a very slow process unless you get immensely lucky.

i hate to see talented people waste their talent doing something they don't like just because its more "normal".

My wife for example, she is a marvelous writer, she only readed a few authors on her life, but she grow on their style and become an amazing writer without realizing of it.

How i know she is a good writer? well, all i ever want in my life is to be a great writer, and i wrote all the time stories when i was a child, but while i was young, i was raised with the mentallity of being "practical", always having to make things that gives me a financial reward. So i left what i loved apart trying to gain my place on the world as someone that contributes to society.

Then i meet her and told her about my "stupid dream" and she showed me her writing. Just as something unmeaningful she did on her spare time when she was young. That she didn't do it anymore.

God! That day changed everything, i knew no people with that kind of writing skills without being a renowed author. And she was on par to Nabokov!

So i started my own adventure. I pretty much have a long way before i can stood proudly up to Joyce, T.S. Elliot, Dostoievski, Poe and Rabelais. But i feel good at least, little by little, trying everyday, to walk at the shadow of those titans, and maybe one day, stand beside them, or even better, behead them.

My wife from the get go have the potential to be the next Virginia Woolf, the next Toni Morrison, and she have that talent without knowing it, but my wife choose the "practical" way of living. Even when its full of inconsistencies, dellusions, instability, and foremost, she doesn't like the work she have at all.

She gives me a dream again, a meaning, a purpose, and she didn't even notice that she is what i always dreamed.

I would like to help her realice her potential, but she is used to the way of working on something unsatisfying but having her paid at the end of the month.

 

Sometimes i open the folder with her typewriter manuscripts. And i cry seeing those amazing words, words like i will never be able to write, words that are soo full of feeling that hurt just to read them, words soo powerful that make me tremble.

 

Talent is a heavyweight sometimes, and sometimes people don't want that burden on their shoulders.

I undertand that, but i also feel that its a shame, a shame that people have to do other things for living, and not what they love.

Its sad.

I also hate it when they go for something else entirely than their vocation, but what can you do, not all of those can be turned into profit, not unless you're very creative.

 

I'll be making my living from unenjoyable shit too.

The authors i love and i mentioned above, for most of their life, they lived on poverty, relying on other jobs for living, but they never gave up on what made them feel good.

Poe for example, never have the oportunity to fullfil his dream of having his own newspaper and he only received $9 as paid for his amazing poem "The Raven".

Yes, its sad to see this, but they, at least, never give up, so you too, pal! Don't give up!

If you have something that makes you feel good, just do it!

This might sound like a self help panphlet, but no, its not.

There is a life beside working for living.

hate this, don't like that, yadda yadda; heard it all a thousand times. :P

 

I'm not keen on social networks as a general user, but as a promotional tool it's second to none - A reminder that you don't have to consume everyone else's crap, just post your own content. It's no different to posting your development process on a forum or blog. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

As someone who runs his freelancing business primarily through Twitter, I agree 100%. Just use it as a tool and don't bother with the rest of the noise social media has to offer. Unless you enjoy a good bit of harmless shitposting with your friends as I tend to do ;^) :^P

Useless gym progress: I was recently able to benchpress 60kg 1x5 and 3x4 repeats. Someone at the gym also complimented me about it. Year ago 40kg was something like this, now 40kg is like my warmup. With shoulder press I can do 4 series with 3 to 4 repeats with 40kg. Year ago that was with 25-30kg, and my main series (like 3x10) were with pretty much just the 20kg bar. No idea how much I squatted year ago, but now my main series is becoming 50kg, kinda just recently started squatting after leg press started to feel like lacking challenge. Is this good progress?

 

Some guy hit on me at a bar when I was already dancing with someone else. Sure we weren't touching each other. This other guy gets between us and was putting his hands on my hips, then I tell him I'm already with someone else. If I would have danced that close with someone, it would have been with the guy I invited to dance. I have principles, if I invite you to dance, then I'll dance with you.

 

Also the last few school assignments are like the last few megabytes of a download that suddenly slowed down immensely. Yet at the same time I know that as soon as I'm done with them, I can do something more fun.

With all the stress and frustration and now newly developed issues, I have decided to see a psychologist in two weeks.

 

I wonder how that will go, I'm honestly quite pessimistic that it will help fixing anything, especially since I know the root of all this nonsense, and unless that changes - aka me moving out - it will probably do exactly jack shit. Damned life but what can you do, damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I saw a few psychologists a couple of years ago and it definitely did absolutely nothing in regards to my case back then. However, I still wish that it does something for you anyways. I guess that will count as a random fact.

Best of luck to you. With my mother's help, we're also attempting to see a psychologist for ourselves, but we're still busy looking for a new house to live in as well.

Sometimes the psychologist is not enough, or even can't make much of a difference after years of treatment.
On my experience, even when it wasn't really long, just one year treatment, one time a week, it worked pretty find as i asked my Psychologist to apply me a lot of different test like Rorschach, and some other that revealed, aside from the liberating speaking i had every week, really deep things about me that i didn't knew, or for say it better, i didn't wanted to recognize. Own faults, own missconceptions and so.
I was heavy, but it worked cause i went to know why i was so angered, and i found much more..
I remember entering the first session wanting to know more about me and why i was the way i was than to speak out my problems.
Being mentally predisposed could make a huge difference.
Some people start a psychological therapy don't knowing why they need it.
Other just go to not change their way, just to oppose any change.
And all of this is even more subjetive as if one start a therapy with a psychologist that isn't good enough or have the proper aknowledge or tools at their hand for the therapy, the treatmen will stall.

I wish you guys the best.
