35, for some reason I thought all you gays ware about 10 years younger
31, although people say I look 25. Not sure if I should be pleased about this
Coming out of the old farts or is the average age on indiegamer really 30+ ?
Thought that, too.
I'm turning 40 next month. I'm worried about what my wife has up her sleeve.
29. And is it a surprise that a lot are 30+? Video games have been around a long time!
Games have been around, but indie work sounds like the sort of thing people would be more likely to do when they're younger and don't have things like mortages to pay and families to feed.
I'm 30, and this thread is awesome, thanks.
- josh g.
27 and I also thought the same ...
37 - must be something to do with getting your first computer at an impressionable age.
Same here... although people seem to think I'm 19
After reading this thread I actually feel young again. j/k!!! But seriously I thought the median age around here was 25-31. But if this thread is any indication it's probably more like 31-39.
You'd rather look older?!
I get 26-27 from people a lot (I think the half-asian blood helps here, haha), and I love it. I hope it holds out.
You'd think so, but in reality all kids want to do is work on "cool AAA" games. Which is why the majority of them just spin their wheels and talk a lot of shit and never get anywhere.
I won't lie, I did the same thing! When I was 18, all I wanted to make was Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat/Virtua Fighter clones. I did eventually get my Mortal Kombat clone done; it had one character (me, digitized against a blue tarp), and 3 attack moves. But it had juggle combos!
Of course, the content barrier was a lot more manageable back then, so it was easier to get closer to the bar. World of Warcraft with one map, one character, and three player actions isn't quite the same thing
I'm 22. Was sold the first time I saw Commander Keen.
36, but my wife keep saying I should stop acting like a teenager...
I rather look my age, but I guess Asians don't age, as quoted by a Nordic board game buddy of mine. It's hard to be taken seriously when you look like you just finished school.
31, with 3 kids now(!).
I used to play John Cutter's games when I was in 9th grade. Now I can help him get a new walker and bifocals as thanks for helping design Azada..
28 in a couple of weeks, and soon to be a father...
Actually, the age I get from other people depends on my hair and beard ,
32 with beard and longer hair
22 beardless with small spiky (hairwaxed) hair
28 trimmed hair, small beard...
55 after a all nighter trying to get some code done
As many of you I've also been told that I'm to old to dream about games...
I had to know that I would become a dad to start doing what I love, it all made sense then, now its just not for me, its for that tiny person that's coming to this world (chest inflates with pride )
I'm also turning 28 in a couple of weeks. No kids on the way here though
25 years, and thankful for this board not being flooded with teenagers eager to make Doom 5.
