I'd say I've grown a lot as a developer, but I've grown a lot more in the aspect that I personally don't want to go looking for a team. I want to wait and see if anyone takes interest in me, and if they do, then awesome! If nobody takes interest and ignores me completely, that's fine too. I'm content.
The reason I'm so happy and smug about what I have here at KIIRA is because I have a platform here that allows me to directly assist people. It allows me to grow, and become more than I've ever been as a developer, or would ever be otherwise. I want that to continue. I want to be able to contribute to the community, profitless or not.
Personally, what I do for game design is not meant to turn up large profit. I will be paying for PR marketing, and I will be striving to become successful as a game designer, but only to further the overall goal that makes KIIRA what it is. A platform to help indie developers in every way possible. KIIRA is more than just a game developer, and that's always how it's going to be. I don't want to spend my days slaving away if I know I'm only doing it for myself.
Doing this let's me connect with the largest community I possibly could, and I hope that I'll be able to participate soon in bigger indie community events, such as PAX Prime in Washington. I will be at PAX this upcoming year by the way, so don't forget to come say hi!
Right now I'm working on Calamity Cannon, a mobile bullet hell game made in Construct 2. The game features some new(ish) ideas that I haven't seen in bullet hell games before. Here's a small list of what I'm putting in there:
Oh, and did I mention it'll be open source for free? ^_^ I'm just that awesome!
The Pokemon Construct 2 engine! Currently already up in the Portfolio/Projects section, but right now it's not really ready to be used and has an offensive text on the screen if you don't find the word "balls" or "rubbing them" appropriate! But, no worries, I'm going to be making some supple updates to the engine in time!
