I love making games and I particularly love the freedom of making any game I want to. I'm an indie developer that allocate a small portion of my time to make small and simple games. I do plan to step up my game development efforts.
Many of my games never make it past the prototyping stage. But that's OK! It's the fun of making them, exploring what's entertaining, tackling the challenge, that drives me. Releasing a game is a bonus =)
