(All my indie-scene buddies will have totally different perceptions, and to be honest: I’m not writing about indie, because I know nothing about that. I’ll check out the indie scene on my free time once I retire from triple-A maybe, but for now I just don’t know jack about being an indie dev, so I’m not writing about it.)
If I can leave you with one piece of advice that I have acquired over all of these years, it’s to always find some degree of pride in what you have accomplished so far. Be thankful for every accomplishment, no matter how small. Be proud of yourselves. Not to the point of pride, but rather to encourage and motivate.
