Last year I decided to take the next logical step in my progression from electronics engineer, to industrial software engineer, to mobile developer, to game developer/designer... and embarked on my first serious attempt at making a game. The end result was a simple catch game for Android which all stemmed from the Game of Thrones meme "Where are my dragons".

I'd love it if you could check it out and give some *constructive* feedback! It's completely free and there are no ads or in-app purchases - a real novelty these days... You can download the game here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ernarrowsmith.wamd

I probably won't continue working on this project; it was good fun (most of the time) and I learnt a lot, but I'm now working on various other projects into which I'd rather pour my spare time ( = total awake time - [guitar + job + exercise + girlfriend/friends/family] ). However, if you have some suggestions I may consider doing an update, or alternatively taking those forward into my next project!

Damn man, I don't have Google Play on this terminal, but,


Is job demand outlook for electrical engineers as bad as it seems? Why did you get into whatever degree you are in now?


It looks dissimilar to Clash of Clans

Hey,

It's a bit tough at the moment, though it depends on your discipline. I specialised in computer architecture and embedded software, and am now working in automotive system design. There's reasonable demand for these skills but not as much as colleges and universities would like you to think. Still, prospects for engineering graduates are much better than a lot of other fields. Not sure where you're based; I'm in the UK. I think the outlook is generally better in Germany and the US.

I originally got in to engineering because I'm passionate about designing and creating things, and I found I was best and electronics and software. I doubt I'll ever move into game development full time as it's a pretty volatile industry, but it's great fun as a hobby/potentially as a small side business.

And yeah you're right, it's certainly no clash of clans rip off!

Nice graphics on the collisions haha. I dig that

As a first game its pretty good, ut mobile games aren't my cup of tea. I hope your next project is something to make yourself some $$$ next time.

Thanks

I'm working on another mobile game currently which I'll charge a nominal fee for, and something for windows/OS x/ Linux. I might put out a sign up sheet for testers/people who'd be interested in hearing more later!
