Hello from Montreal

Hello from Montreal

Salut notgames!

I'm an aspiring game- and hopefully notgame-dev from Montreal, in the French-speaking part of Canada (my English shouldn't be that bad, but please be forgiving of my small missteps). I've been passionate about game development since as far as I can recall; mostly to create worlds for players to explore and interact with. Last year, I started digging around the concept of making art from the same medium as games, and unsurprisingly (it's a small world -- an even smaller field) ended up on Tale of Tales, the RAM and other texts by Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn, and of course this initiative.

I'm boiling with ideas I'd like to attempt, but for now I'm focusing on finishing a traditional game; both as a technical practice and as a trial of my own determination to complete a project. Notgames are however always on my mind, and I'm keeping notes for when I can spare some time to attempt them.

I'd be extremely interested in getting in touch with people from Montreal or Quebec. As active and resourceful this community seems to be, I'd love the exchange and motivation of meeting like-minded aficionados in person. In the mean time, I think I might become quite active around here.

This common exploration is exhilarating -- I found myself reading plenty of posts on this board while awaiting my account approval, always surprised that what I'd want to contribute to the conversation hadn't been already said. There are so many unanswered questions, unsolved problems, unattempted ideas. We are lucky to live in an era on the edge of an entirely new medium, where almost nothing is grounded, standardized, normalized or immovable. I can't wait to start poking around in the dark, and see what lights up.
