Well, its been a while since I've posted here, or done anything with zdaemon to be honest. I just got my Industry pass confirmation to E3 and so I reflected back on how I first got into the Game Industry.

I followed that trail right here. Back when I started playing zdaemon back in 2005/2006 I didn't know shit about game development. I got to relieve my childhood playing doom in a slightly different light with modern multiplayer and more maps/mods you could shake a stick at.

I started getting curious about how to make those cool new maps and started making some maps of my own. The lessons I learned about level design still to this day help me almost on a daily basis. I also did my first scrips by making doom maps. Doom taught me about game development pipelines and designing software to be flexible and data driven.

The SOLE reason I started Programming and learning C was to port an online version of doom ( a Zdaemon ) on to the Playstation portable.

I never finished that particular project but i never stopped programming, and now I'm a software engineer with 3 years in the game dev industry.
This simply would not have happened without Zdaemon, Doom, and the incredible community we had that supported me and played my shitty doom maps Smile

Hell, I still talk with coworkers about that Level editor EarthQuake fuckin' made for my game on his own time.

Thank you Zdaemon, I owe you more than I can ever repay!
