Hey all, I quit my job today!

For the first time in 3 years I'll be a free man, and you know what that means? I can work on Mutant Factions full-time again! For the past 3 years development on this game has been slowed because I've been at work all day. The only time I could work on the game was in my spare time, and when I'm coding all day at work it's hard to find the time/energy to work on the game at home as well. But now I'm free and will be working on Mutant Factions 40+ hours a week, every week. It's going to be amazing and I couldn't be more excited to have the freedom to work on my favourite hobby properly again.

I quit my job specifically so that I could work on Mutant Factions full-time again. The game is almost finished and I want to get it onto Steam and build a community once and for all. Doing this will make the past 6 years of work I've spent on this game all worth it, and if quitting my job is necessary to ensure that this happens then so be it! I see it as an investment in a way. I'm sacrificing money I could have earned at my day job in the hopes that the game will get onto Steam and explode and pay for itself later on anyway. But if that doesn't happen I'll simply be happy to build a community and share this game with as many people as possible.

Anyway, I still have to work for 4 more weeks for contractual reasons, but on the 11th of February I'll be working on Mutant Factions 100% of the time! I'm pummmmped!

Wow. I'm honestly not sure what the correct word is for this. I'm going with congratulations. I'm really hoping that this'll pay off for you, Ben. Honestly, despite my endless complaining about minor balance issues, we're all on your side for this, and really, really hope it'll all work out.
Best of luck, man. Can't wait to see everything that you'll be working on! :D

Cheers! Should be good fun. To be honest I'm not too concerned about the money as I've saved up quite a bit over the past 3 years anyway. I just really want to get the game finished and onto Steam. I've invested a large chunk of my life into this game and want to see it through to completion :D

Glad you're deciding to follow your passion. Best of luck! I'll try to be active again if some real development starts happening.
