Dan Reut's Blog


I could have never guessed that my first job of playing video games in a store window to intrigue customers, would lead to my newfound career path as a video game developer and blogger. From zero to game developer, I’m a family man at heart who is taking the risk of pursuing both my full-time job & changing career paths, to become one of the best video game developers in the world.

A non-novice in the world of development, I have participated in several game jams; creating games in less than twenty-four hours & self-releasing a few of the games after creation. Throughout the development process however, I was able to see just how saturated the market truly was. It was at that time, I realized I needed to learn more than just the basic principles of game development; I needed to provide engagement, excitement, & exhiliritation to my user base.

Currently working full-time at a large IT firm, married with one child (& one on the way), my life is anything but boring. Most people would probably feel like it’s a risk to change career paths at this time, but I’m not most people. It’s a journey that few would take & that’s what makes it all the more exciting. Can I make it? Follow along & see for yourself!
