Year One

April 29, 2014

They say goals are capable of transforming your lives. I didn’t believe in it but the past year has made me into a believer. As someone who for large parts of his teen and adult life “went along the flow” of time by making decisions and doing things I was *supposed* to do, the last year (or the last two) have been really altered my general perspective, worldview on a lot of things including life. I have previously attributed a lot of the change to The Knife’s Shaking the Habitual so I’ll not reiterate that here again but I will say that while many of us believe pop culture consumption is a largely redundant and time-wasting activity, some of my biggest changes in perspective have been driven by these pop culture elements — particularly music. I’ll do a quick recap of what I learnt in my first year as a game developer — the important lessons and things that kept me driving. Let’s get started […]

The Mask

April 25, 2013

  The Mask We wore our masks – the facades behind which we hid our true selves from the outside world. We never removed them in front of others. The mask was a chameleon, a shape-shifter – changing colours and forms evolving according to the will of our minds. It would enable us to shift from sympathetic friends to disdainful rivals in the space of moments. We lived in bliss with our masks on our faces, not caring what lay beneath. Why should we?

Then came a time, in the midst of a flux, when one of us stumbled upon an object. This object lay in a remote corner of our virtual space. In this virtual space, the masks people wore gained strange powers. It unshackled them from responsibility curtailing their intentions behind a veil […]

“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players: They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts”  — Shakespeare ——– A fresh beginning. Pushing the “Reset” and clearing the memory on everything that once existed. Many of us wish for a fresh start, a renewed state of existence at some point of our life, but it isn’t supposed to be that easy. Blogging, however is quite easy. I have been accustomed to blogging on a certain site embedded within a community I’ve grown to cherish. A new beginning here does not indicate I’m cutting off all my ties to that place. I still intend on copy-pasting blogs related to gaming I write here on that site. I think I still owe them that much. Like, I’ve said before my GameSpot exit shall only happen when the 3-4 people I care about on that site stop blogging on it. That’s […]
