Hello all! My name is Chris, and I’m a twenty-three-year-old amateur board game designer when I’m not studying for school. I’ve been making games for three years now and in that time I have made 4 working prototypes. Now, that’s not a lot, but between getting a degree, and getting married I’m proud of what I’ve accomplished. You may be asking yourself, “Why are you on Shane’s blog?” and the answer is two parts: I don’t want to make my fiance continue to bear my ramblings for hours on end, and like every other developer I feel like I have something with this new design. I’m no Jamey Stegmaier, and I don’t aim to be. Like Shane, I’m just someone with a lot of thoughts about gaming that I want to humbly share the world.
So what exactly am I doing here?
A great question! This is going to be my outlet for talking about the games I’m currently working on, and in doing so I hope to share my process and thoughts, gain feedback, and interact with the gaming community at large. This will be a dev-log of sorts as I continue to work on this game and others in the future. I will post once a month, maybe more if I end up making good progress. I encourage replies on any of my posts and I will try to reply to anyone who does so. With that, here’s a hint of what game I’m developing:
Thank you all for reading my first post on For the Sake of Gaming! Tomorrow I will reveal to you this game, and commence the dev-logging!
