Tea brought this up on his stream, and I figured I’d consider it.
He often streams himself doing 3D modeling and texturing for a game he does art for, and I usually tune in when I can. Good music, great art, always fun. He told me that streaming helps him get things done. He works better under pressure, and the extra demand on him doing productive things streaming brings definitely helps. I myself don’t always work well under pressure, it’s very circumstantial. (I did get an 8 for a long-ass essay I made the night before, after discovering we had to have that done the next day.)
I might be willing to give it a shot though. Who knows, maybe streaming is great fun. I can get instant feedback when I make something the end-user will be seeing as well, and if there’s code savvy folks watching, they could point it out in case I do something real stupid. And of course there’s the whole “provider of entertainment” thing. If people enjoy watching my stream then that’s really cool.
So yeah, let me know if you’d be interested in watching me develop games. It won’t just be coding only though, chances are I’ll be pumping out art assets as well. I think streaming would work best once I got the basic system set up (which is being a pain in the ass right now), since I can just focus on plugging in new content without having to worry about the super complicated stuff (and look stupid when I spend half an hour on something minor).
Let me know, and maybe you can spot me on stream one of these days?
