Why Steve jobs?
“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.”
Hi << Test First Name >>! This is a quote from Steve that I’m sure many knows. At the age of 10, I’ve built myself my first (very outdated) computer. When I played my first management games – I already knew that I MUST be a game developer. Unfortunately, my financial situation and generally the Hungarian environment didn’t let me do so.
Eventually, I became a developer and ended up being a solution architect/product owner. I led a project about biometric signatures for banks and the gov – I wasn’t poor anymore, I was well-paid and successful.
I saw Steve talking about passion and motivation a lot of times during my life. And after a decade in the IT industry, I decided to give up my career, and try to make the huge step just from a hobbyist to be a real indie game dev.
Here is another quote:
“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”
I burn my savings. I barely sleep. I risk a LOT. But now I’m happy – and I really hope that people will like what I created. That’s why I wanted to contribute the game to HIS memory! Also, I cannot tell any other name having a bigger impact on the computer industry. This is his death anniversary – but I hope that today I can give him a tribute by doing this – I’m sure that people will remember him for a very long time.
“Computer Tycoon is an indie business strategy game about Computer Evolution and starting your own company in the 70s. Lead the research race until 2034, create the best hardware and operating system, take care of your infrastructure and even handle your marketing. Find video game gems to promote them on your platforms, conquer the global market and became literally immortal. Players control the game from a world map from which the objective is to control available resources”
At this moment the feedbacks are great. The game often hits the first place on the IndieDB charts from more than 40k games, that is awesome. I’m really happy about that. If you’d like to upload the trailer somewhere, or feature it in any videos before the EA release on October 12th, feel free to do so, here you can download it for yourself:
