I've been meaning to introduce myself on here for a while. My name is Kelly Weaver, and I am an aspiring indie developer from Athens, GA. Aspiring, of course, means that I haven't released anything yet, but I hope to be changing that sometime in the near future.
Oddly, I thought growing up that making games would be terrible. I somehow figured that if I spent all day making video games that it would ruin my love of playing them. Looking back, I think that's a pretty odd thing to think. I started making websites pretty much as soon as I got the internet because I looked at the multitude of websites back then and said "I'd like to try my hand at that." Oddly, the urge to try my hand at game making didn't come until my twenties.
The first game I made was a Missile Command clone. Since I was a proficient programmer, my friend had always joked that I should make a game in which he tries to take over the world. I found myself with a lot of time on my hands one year, and to occupy it, I decided I would make my friend's game for him.
Sometime last year, I saw Ska Studio's "The Dishwasher" and like I did with websites, I finally had that moment of "I'd like to try my hand at that!" Since then, I've come up with and shelved about three projects. I'm about a year into the development of one project, which I've shared with a few people, and a month into another. I'll be posting about both soon.
When I hopefully get a little more time, and some of those shelves dusted, I'd really like to take part in one of the Pageants here. I've set up a website for my "studio" - you can see that at http://www.polymath-games.com
I can't wait to see the amazing stuff that I know is already coming from here.
