I finally resigned from Auran a couple of weeks ago. I’ve wanted to try running my own software development company for a while now and I’ve been asked to write a book based on my programming personality test. I thought I was going to be contracting at Auran; however it seems they’ve run out of money, or projects or something and I’ll now be contracting 3 days per week at the company I used to work with, MVH. While I’m glad to be leaving Auran, I’m going to miss the team I was working with. We had a great new game coming up, great people and some awesome tech made by the engine programmer. It’s a shame that I’ll no longer be working with the team, but unfortunately there are some things I just can’t change.
As fate would have it, my 4th anniversary for being in the games industry comes up tomorrow. While I’ll still be working on games tech as a contractor, I’m officially no longer a full-time game programmer. I’ve now moved into the realm of entrepreneur and business owner. I’ve also just moved into my new home and am more over moving than I’ve ever been. I’ve set up a small home office with a few computers, whiteboard etc ready for the business to begin. I’ll keep you posted with how things go, however I’ll still keep this blog primarily game related.
