The numbers are small, but that's what you expect when you're 20, you're broke, and you've only ever released 5 simple apps in you life. I post the download numbers of all my apps every Saturday on my blog.

Here's an experience with advertising on Facebook from the perspective of someone who's never done any advertising before. Actually someone who doesn't have a product to sell yet either!

When Google is the greatest learning tool on Earth, and it's available for free, why is college still mandatory? I learn more in one afternoon outside of class than I do in a week. Who cares where you learned to do a job as long you can do it right?

I'm finally working on a game I would love to play for the first time. Until now my mobile titles have been practice to teach me the development process. I'm running a blog with daily updates on progress toward completing the game of my dreams.

Back in 12th grade I promised I'd spend my college years becoming the best game developer I possibly could. Lately the thought of just how hard I'm working compared to my peers has been occupying my mind. I wonder if that's a good choice...

I've spent my first two years at college practicing game development. All because school can't be responsible for giving me experience. I've made 3 games so far and I'm putting everything I learned into the 4th. After this one I'll be going all out...
