1 Week down of the 100 days of GameDevHQ!

When I started this challenge a week ago I did not really have a clear path or line of sight for what I had hoped to accomplish, besides gainful employment of course. And now 1 week in and a few hours away from my first coding challenge I feel nervous but confident in my current abilities. I am still very much a Padawan but the amount I have learned in the last two months has been a lot more than I thought it was. For instance, I decided that as the first part of the challenge I would rebuild my 2D SpaceShooter game from scratch again lol. I wanted to see how much I could do using the methods I have learned at GameDevHQ, fromreading the Unity Manual, and Scripting API (Shocker that if you read the manual you can learn things right!?!). I have been simply amazed though that as I am writing this I am currently at a stage in the 2D game building process that previously took me 4 whole weeks and lots of frustrations…see image below lol.

I am a self taught game developer and love pushing myself to learn new things.
