Steve and Matt are the type of blokes who really enjoy doing some creative endeavors on the side. Unfortunately, all this moving around and dealing with adult stuff, like keeping their children alive and remaining gainfully employed, tends to put a squeeze on free time and shake up the routine.
After some cheerful discussion about recent gaming activity and what motivates us to play games (or do anything really) we dig into the challenges we’ve faced with trying to make time for side projects and hobbies.
For anyone not in the know, Steve and Matt actually started a game company together eight-some years ago. It was kind of exhilarating with many ups and downs as one would expect, but we ultimately succumbed to the difficulties of trying to maintain a day job and balance changing family needs. We are now in different and evolving circumstances, and with that experience under our belt we muse over how our things have continued to affect how we approach side projects and motivation.
