I'm turning 27 and I thought I was late to the party... Somehow I felt good about myself after reading this thread.
I'm glad that I'm doing engineering job, I feel that it helped me to think of something complex and let me do something ambitious in C2, it's a dream, and yeah I'm totally going for it!!
Challenge: As a person in late 20 like me, I find it very hard to juggle things around, I need to find stability in career, make sure I don't mess things up and need to build a career reputation. As old as I am, I have a job but no assurance in living if I quit.
Games I'm working on: Nothing concrete for now, but I'm aiming (my dream that is) to build a successful multiplayer game or MMO hopefully. I feel I'm close to getting a reliable template for multiplayer game which I can recycle with a few game genre/mechanics.
