Hello, my name is Bruno, I currently live in Portugal and I am 22 years old, about to make 23 this October.
Ever since I was young I was fascinated with video games, Super Mario being my childhood idol and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7 my favourite character of all time.
Gaming is currently my main hobby at the moment, it moves me away from reality and into a world I'd like to live into, just like a good roleplay does, and yes I do roleplay but not alot since I can't find good people to do that in the sites I roleplay. The main reason gaming is my hobby and an addiction is because of past events, both happy and dreadfull, but the latter had most of the impact. I also draw, but I am loosing my touch, I used to draw during school in English classes and still got excelent grades, but now with work and my deep desire to feed my gaming addiction I have been finding little time to draw, but I'm fixing that as I grow older.
A few years back I also had that feeling that I should make a game that I would love to see happen. I love strategy games like Starcraft 2 and classical platformers like Super Mario, but something was missing in me. So I tryed and tryed everything I could, but ended up giving up, maybe I just didn't had the patience or I couldn't quite grasp the knowladge in such an early age. This January I found about Construct 2, and boy was this a good treasure to find!
I had a great experience using the free edition, and the idea for the perfect game popped up recently, but being with a free edition was no good for me since it would be a very big project overall, which is why I bought the program a few days back.
The experience of being able to develop a game means alot to me, I can bring my idea to life thanks to the helpfull community that Scirra has, which is a reason to making an account here, to be able to thank them for helping me bring my project close to completion (Even though it's still going to be a looooooong way).
Tho recently I've been traveling with work so I couldn't work on my project, it's still a very basic platformer with cubes all around, but my girlfriend offered her help with the art, she is great at drawing and she would love to practise pixelated art, which is the main art theme for my project.
As life goes, my job is close to an end due to crisis, I have the possibility to stick to it from a year to 3 more if I am lucky, though if not I might simply move out of country to find better oportunities, since Portugal is being ruined every day.
I hope everyone has a great experience just like I'm feeling with this wonderfull and easy to use program, and thank you for reading my introduction!
