    Thanks doods. There were lots of thoughts that I had when I started working, so I thought I might as well share. One thing that I can always say about the game industry is though - it's really fucking tiring. Everybody in a game company is really passionate about the product, so you end up working a lot of hours to polish up the game. You'll have to sacrifice time with your family and friends. Just something that might be good to know. I'll see if I can write up the part 2 tonight.
