Why did you decide to join Games For Love?

In 2019, I had been working on a personal The Legend of Zelda fan game project that had become more of a vertical slice prototype of a type of game I’d like to make.  However, my vision for it was beyond the scope of the time I would like to commit to it and with it being a fan game using assets from another IP it meant I definitely could not market it.  This left me wondering what my next steps should be.

I met Nathan Blair at the Christian Game Developers Conference a few years back and kept in touch over the years.  Recently, he reached out to me about this opportunity to be a part of Channel Surfing+, which happened to come around this turning point in my previous project.  After we discussed the volunteering details and I saw the opportunity to continue developing 2D games as part of this project, it made sense to bring all the workflows and technologies I learned working on that vertical slice towards bringing new games to life in the VR arcade channel.  That way I could continue to hone my craft while also gleaning knowledge and experience working in a team with people from various disciplines and levels of experience.

Share your experiences volunteering with Games For Love.

It’s been a pleasure working with a small team on a VR arcade channel for the upcoming Channel Surfing+ game where each of us have our own strengths to bring.  I have a background in 2D game development, so I thought at first I would be of little help for a VR game in 3D space, but the VR arcade was a perfect fit where I could create new 2D games for the arcade machines that the player can engage with using VR controls.  It’s encouraging to watch the progress being made on all fronts in this channel and in the full team as well, and it gives me good motivation to bring some new things to show off for each team meeting.
