Hi PH! πŸ‘‹πŸ» Eve of Impact is the first commercial product I build. Back in 2010 I bought my first iPhone and imagined it would be magical to be able to have my own game on it. So, without any knowledge of game development, Objective-C or OpenGLES I switched from Windows to Mac and set out to actually build it. After nearly two years of designing visuals, working on my own render engine and particle engine, learning memory management and C, it was finally ready for launch. I remember it was the tensest I ever felt, but at the same time I had this overwhelming feeling of accomplishment 😎. That moment got me hooked on product development. As all indie game developers back then, I planned to get rich quick! Make the big ones! πŸ€‘ You might've already read in the product description that it didn't work out that way. The game did great, but as a niche product, it just didn't have the reach required. I've since open-sourced Eve of Impact so others can learn from it and play with the code (follow the GitHub link in the social section). πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» I'm currently working on new open-source and commercial products for the web. I hope to make my way back to game development in the near future. Happy to answer any questions!
