I just wanted to let you guys know that I've been putting alot of my time and energy into building my own game dev company for a while now. Given the fact that there isn't much hiring going on in this region for those who don't have 5+ years of experience or more on the job, I'd much rather take my chances going out on my own doing what I enjoy. This has been my plan for a few years now, but at first I wanted to get more industry experience before getting started, but that plan isn't working due to the overwhelmingly pickiness of hiring managers these days.
Although I haven't released any of my games yet, I've gotten off to a good start. I have the equipment, hardware and software to do most things that I plan to do, made a nice little office in my apartment, and a few games that people are already looking forward to buying/playing (not just people, one 3rd party company is interested in one of my games). Sounds great in all, but there's much more work to be done besides coding and designing levels/artwork. =)

This doesn't mean that I've stopped working on Cxbx at all! It just means that I have more than one project going on (one that will hopefully pay off). I still have time during my off days and weekends to work on Cxbx and other emulation related stuff.
So if you want, feel free to follow this blog and give your opinions on the games I'm working on. Any feedback is welcome. And at this point, I can use all the good advice I can get. :)
