It's time for some real talk, this break from my usual funnyman shitposting.
I need some advice.
I'm in my early 20s, never been to college (Honestly I don't see any point in college right now except networking, and even that can be done elsewhere without racking up 100k in loan debt.)
but might consider a trade welding, I have extensive experience in programming and scripting from making mods and Unity games all the time, but as a hobby it isn't currently bringing any money in, meaning I can't entirely support those projects beyond dumping them on GameJolt or something, so I'm thinking about going into welding or something part time that brings in enough money to register trademarks for my game and brand, get past Steam's $100 submission fee, buy a bunch of computer parts, etc.
I've been trying to work on a game but the jist is I have ran into financial obstacles, where there's no real point in continuing unless I want to stay broke.
I'm also doing the music, artwork, sound design, trailer video editing, promo art, logos, shirt designs, story, and a touch of voice acting all on my own. It's been fun, but I'm getting tired of living with my parents, even though my situation is more common than I otherwise thought, even that knitcapped Tim Pool guy was doing a video on a demographic showing a majority of young men in America are living at home, unemployed or out of work, and unmarried.
NEET memes are a coping strategy, but I have useful skills, I just don't have the funds I need right now for an independent startup. I don't want to get a job working for a large game development company because they abuse their employees and my skills would be used to make freemium mobile trash.
I'm a one man studio and I'd like to keep it that way, but I'll eventually like to hire voice actors and testers, and obtain the necessary hardware and equipment. >Why not just make the game text-based?
Right now it's Fallout talking heads style, with specific plot characters doing voices, and the NPCs being only text.
I wont go into too much detail as this isn't a pathetic attempt at advertising, not here to shill muh indie game, but it's more than that. I am a total neet and the only friends I have are post-op trannies of the buffalo bill variety, and internet gaming trolls with YouTube channels reaching a staggering 100 subscribers.
I have to get out of this town, I have to get out of Jew York and stay far from it. Should I move down south where it rarely snows or is it true that everyone down south chugs Dr. Pepper and is a fat stupid frenpede? I also did research on where there's the least bitchy (((interracial))) couples and I'm looking into affordable housing.
You guys remember B&E Cribs? How much money was saved cleaning out that shitden? Not the cleanest fixer-upper but the grass is greener where you water it, right? I'm betting that was a decent bargain. I go to the gym 2-3 times a week so I could even move all that around, not sure where I'd find a CraigslistCrackDen™ though.
I'm trying to get off my feet here, I might be able to make money selling the game and soundtrack, but I don't have the money to trademark a title and get through Steam's $100 submission, so I'm working on that, moving to a different state comes later obviously.
What do you guys think?
The goytoys on /mde/ are total bros, I hope you can be as helpful as you've always been thus far. Thank you for all the good times.
