I personally dropped out of game development months after I graduated High School. I ended with my final project, a Zelda Four Swords death match game where I went idle for a while just grinding at a 9 to 5 job making good money. I got sick of it and became a Pizza Delivery Driver where life was more tolerable. During my time there, I decided to start a Youtube channel for creative content and playing games, where I actively upload videos on a timed schedule, and am developing a brand TCPixel. I'm going to be a multimedia student this fall, and I'm totally excited.
Now, your turn.
