When I was a boy, I bought a steam bundle of games, it was a bundle of star wars games, for like 10USD from that time, and I first thought, cool, hope that I play some of that games later, but then a realization occurred in my head, the realization organ <unless you’re the horned one> people make this game, and given the industry conditions now, back then was probably a little bit worse, probably… I wasn’t there, some of those people lost a marriage, someone divided their own families, some of them got sick, some of them knew that some of the game got bugs, but it didn’t matter, the boss wanted to fulfill that Christmas deadline…

And I bought that, I didn’t buy the franchise they were working on, I didn’t buy the dream of some executive of making some cash, I bought their work… for like 10 bucks… one-third of their life during the development, I know it’s more especially during crunch, but let’s say 1/3… and that number stuck into me…

A little bit before that I thought, I’m not going to make a buck as a game or movie composer in Mexico, I had ideas and I said: “I want to write, I want to do pixel art, I want to compose, I didn’t want to program” But at last, I programmed almost all of my game… I tried everything to make this shit happen…

I didn’t know how to sell feet picks or pick heavy stuff, so I started composing music for some projects that scrapped my work, later on, doing some pixel art commissions and asking for government disability funds, which are given in Mexico, I was disabled for free, I might as well receive some money for it, some loan from my grandparents, after all of that I got like 15K dollars, we started working on it, a lot of people worked with us, but it wasn’t going to be enough to finish this…

So we started a Kickstarter, and it failed, tried to go to publishers, but it wasn’t either good enough for them, or outside of their portfolio, so they didn’t know how to market it, the pandemic started, I got sad, I seek medical help, I got better, and as a joke, I sent my project to Microsoft, we got some funding, we’re paying our bills with that money, and I did the unthinkable, I finish my game…

Do you remember the 10 bucks that I talk you about? Well the game last like 10 hours, more if you’re trying to get all the endings, and for 10 bucks, you can get the full range of emotions that I lived during that period of time, one buck for every year that I didn’t know what I was doing, and one buck for every consequential year, until I knew, kinda, what I was doing… unless I launch the game with a discount… then you’ll be paying less than a buck for it…
