    I was just going to ask if there were any women here. I'm disappointed that you don't appear to be the norm.

    As for myself, I'm 24, just barely out of the huge AAA dreams. Although I'm (relatively) young, I've been working on games for awhile now (my current project is the first indie title I've sunk my teeth into, strangely enough). I'm moving out west to found our studio this month, it's all very exciting!

    Anyway, it's very interesting to get a perspective on who you all are. It's changed my preconceptions. I was getting used to gamedev, and it kind of made me throw up in my mouth a little, because everybody was so unrealistic in their expectations.

    "OI! R THERE ANY GIRLZ HERE?"

    :)

    Honestly, though, on most forums people tend to *assume* everyone posting is male, whether they are or not. While males may be the majority, I've had endless years of "You mean you're actually a *girl*?!?" to put up with to remind me that people tend to form their own mental image of the 'default internet person'...

    I'm 29. Last year I was 28. But next year I will be 29.

    Someone really should do a theatrical spoof on Peter Pan where it's a bunch of hip twenty-somethings avoiding turning 30. Would go over well with the latte-sipping theater crowd.

    When this thread started and i saw all those 30somethings posting, i thought to stay quiet for a while, just to make sure i'm not the only 20something :p.

    Well i'm around 23 plus some months. I'm not sure how many though (bored to do the math right now :p).

    35 with one son of 13 who enjoys nothing more than beating me on halo 3 and a great girlfriend who understands my passion for programming or rather puts up with it.

    Bah I didn't post at first as I thought it was an old thread and I'd already posted, but that must have been on the Blitz forum, anyway here's my specs:

    Age: 32
    Sex: Male
    Kids: 2
    First Comp: Spectrum 48K at age of 8 (eternally grateful to my dad), then C64, Amiga, PC.
    Years Programming: 24
    Professional Developer: 9 years business software, 3 years games. (games are *way* more fun)

    So yep, I'm a 30-something making 2D games because I grew up with BASIC then assembly and I've played classic games since the 80s and I'm probably trying to relive my youth somehow :) However, I'm a lot wiser than I was in my teens and 20s and wouldn't want to go back.

    Great quote esp. coming from a 16 year old - just make sure you follow it through son </old man mode off>
