I have successfully launched and delivered to the world, the very first RPG (role playing game) built into a desktop page-a-day style calendar. The 2021 Quest Calendar: The Dragon Staff of Maladoria.
My full-time career is a Software Developer focused on Testing Engineering, but everyone has other passions and I have always loved games. Board, card, and video games are a deep passion of mine. In 2018, an idea sparked in my head for this game and I let it stew for a couple years. In 2020, I decided to go for it and launched on Kickstarter under the company of Sundial Games LLC. Today, thousands of people are playing my game. It is scary, stressful, exciting, and very fulfilling.
I am launching another Quest Calendar for the 2022 year and hope to take this further. It is a dream to be able to do this full time. It was very difficult to do both. I don't know why I chose 2020 of all years to make that endeavor. It was difficult enough.
I remember that someone once told me it take 7 years to master anything in life, why spend your entire life in one field? You can have about 11 different periods of doing something different and wonderful in your life. I feel it is time for me to move on to the next thing.
