Have you ever heard of a tag? It’s usually when somebody does something (whether it be draw something, answer some questions, etc.) and then has to “tag” other people to do it too. Quite a while ago, I was tagged, and that’s what I’m going to do now! I mostly will have to talk about myself, so this will be good for those of you who want to know more about me.
First up, 10 things about me:
1.- I want to have my own game company someday. For now though, I’m pretty happy with developing games in my free time.
2.- I like chocolate. I mean, I really, really like it. For the safety of your chocolate, you should keep it away from me.
3.- I’ve always been interested in game development, and have made little games since I was young, but what made me get serious was the Square Enix Latin America contest, a competition for which I worked really hard.
4.- I can’t say I remember exactly when or how I started, but I really like listening to extended music (usually game music looped for at least 10 minutes).
5.- When I was a kid, I used to have hamsters. One died because his water bottle was jammed. The other escaped.
6.- My favorite games are Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix (the battle system actually became deep when you played on Critical difficulty), The World Ends You (excellent battle system and personality) and Shadow of the Colossus (no explanation neccesary).
7.- I enjoy doing shameless self-promotion.
8.- I’m currently working on Life’s Impetus, a strategic action game where you have seconds left to live and must gather the souls of the dead to survive.
9.- I would say what motivated me to work hard to reach my goals was a Bakuman, a Japanese manga about two guys (in school) who wanted to become manga creators. Their never-ending effort to reach their dreams was a really big inspiration for me.
10.- And actually, Bakuman also inspired me to delve into webcomic making for a while. It was great fun, and really helped me improve my art, but before I long I decided I should dedicate myself more to gamedev.
10 questions chosen by the guy who tagged me:
Are you a cat person or a dog person, and why?
Good question, to be honest I haven’t really spent enough time with either to be able to tell. I’m not a very energetic person though, so I feel a cat would probably be a better match for me.
Have you ever been to a gig/concert? If so, when, where, and who was playing?
Last thing I went to Distant Worlds, the Final Fantasy concert. It was back in June, at Movistar Arena here in Santiago, Chile, played by the Metropolitan Symphonic Orchestra if I remember correctly. I didn’t recognize half of the songs (need to play more FF…), and they didn’t play some I was looking forward, but it was awesome nevertheless.
Did you ever break a bone?
Nope. I’ve sprained myself many times though.
Pirates or ninjas?
…how about ninja pirates?
Do you play Hearthstone? If so, what’s your battletag and the best Rank you achieved? (if you don’t mind sharing it)
Nope. I really want to try it out someday, see why so many people like it.
If your entire video game collection was on fire and you had time to save only one game, what would it be and why?
Probably Kingdom Hearts. Besides bringing a lot of good memories, it has one of the best box arts ever. (it’s worth noting that it’s actually shiny)
Would you rather be home alone or with some friends?
Alone. I actually like going to friend’s houses a lot, but when it comes to my house I rather relax and concentrate on doing my stuff.
Is a set the sum of its parts?
…There’s insufficent data for me to answer this question.
What are your plans for the future?
As I mentioned before, make my own game company! I’m slighlty unsure about which road to take to achieve that, but for now, I’ll make games in my free time and try to sell them.
What’s your favorite animal and why?
Don’t really think I have a favorite, just some I like more and some I like less. I’m guessing it’s because I don’t really pay that much attention to them.
