This is a lovely manifesto! thank you for writing it!

I don’t make games to make *games* but I make games to *make* games. The process is worthwhile, enjoyable, fulfilling.

This is my favorite bit! I find loving the process so important for long term well being. <3

Thank you for making this. Very thoughtful and thought-provoking. I'd love to always be able to feel this way about making games!

I think it really helped to hear someone say it's okay to say boring and wrong shit. Thank you.

And I agree about "I want to make games like I cook meals for my family"

I care about cooking almost as much as I care about making games. And I approach them in similar ways, I think. And relate to other people with them in similar ways. I should think more about this. Thank you.

Sometimes I cook a dinner for my wife that's terrible, it happens. I apologise, we make instant noodles and I try and learn from my mistake and she makes fun of me for the rest of time. Sometimes I make a boring meal that we neither like or dislike, but hey it was dinner. Same with games, I guess.

Thanks! I love cooking as much if not more than I love making games, so the connections are really apparent.
