Witnessing everyone's hard work and dedication stand amongst the store kiosks and digital marketplace gives a wondrous sense of satisfaction.
Game Design is a puzzle; a challenge that I very much enjoy — like a good Sudoku. Blocking the pieces together of a level, driving narratives, weapon balancing, or creating new game mechanics generates a tremendous sense of accomplishment knowing that you put your heart and soul into what becomes the final product.
