My wife asks me why I want to play a game that I craft and sell stuff, when I craft and sell stuff most of the day. My answer.. "I dunno. I like it?" hahah. Simple pleasures are simple and fun for a reason!
I'm getting older but I don't feel old; I've been a gamer since Atari and had nearly every console since then. I mainline ona PS4 for a few hours each evening because while my brain may be retired, I find twitch fibers still work. Then, again, to my wifes chagrin, I'll load up a little ShopHeroes in between a loading screen or PvP match because I'm just a kid at heart.
My roots are technology oscillating between digital design and business development which is where I lean into a family business of a chocolate shop. I have a now 5 year old who often asks, 'Are you playing that crafting game dad?', to which I nod. 'That's a big boy game right dad?', 'Sure it is son, sure it is.' lolol.
On monthly occasion I also like to skydive and find a deep pleasure in falling 190+MPH out of a plane with friends. I call it my psychologist and my family, when I grow irritable, tell me to go take a jump--then sometimes they mumble but I know they still love me.. at least my chute still opens reliably.
Anyhow, it's been a pleasure to talk to many of you in game and utilize/benefit from your expertise in the forums. Thank you for all of your participation and all of Cloudcade's continued development.
