I've been investing most of my time building up a creative project and team for the past couple of infinities, and I'm very happy and grateful to be able to share some of that if anyone is curious! I've combined my love of games and deep interest in personal development into an active project.

This is Skorvion Games, where everything is focused on creativity, play and game development in connection with personal growth, health and awareness. So if someone here finds that interesting or is just curious about it, feel free to check things out for yourself! It's not for everyone, but if you find yourself enjoying this type of content then I hope what you see enriches your life in some way.

There are currently three more-or-less introductory videos uploaded, and considering I'm the project lead, you can guess who's presenting the content! I'm very new to being in front of a camera at this stage (which is evident) and I'm thankfully just getting better and better with each experience! It's pretty cool, actually.

There are certain more impactful (and larger in scale) things being worked on, but I can't reveal anything beyond the current assortment of videos and other similar content that is already on the way. So just expect more video content via YouTube for the time being if you're interested in following our work.

Here's the currently most relevant video for this community: https://youtu.be/FOULGvAy58I

The topic of the above linked video is C&C Tiberian Sun mapping in a certain sense, more aimed at enthusiasts who aren't as experienced with it than a lot of you here might be - so watch that first, it could be the most relatable entry-point for you. Just as a starting suggestion.

Let me know your thoughts and I hope this type of thing resonates well with some of you. You can like the Facebook page, or subscribe to the YouTube channel if you'd like to be notified of any new stuff (don't count on forum thread updates, it's secondary)! I truly appreciate your support, so have a sincere thanks and invisible cookie! Enjoy! :)

Your linked video certainly has relevance here.

There is a barrier to entry in regards to creating ideas and bringing them to life on a platform like W3D or Unreal or whatever. The initial steps of entering unknown territory - unknown tools, working environment, standards, and missing knowledge all create a high-pressure situation that most people quickly want to walk out of. This is a perfectly natural human response, most of us don't deal well with such things. The problem originates from stepping into these situations blindly, without assistance, and without support - as you say.

The problem is often compounded by other people sharing these negative experiences, which then creates an echo-chamber within your head which basically serves to reinforce that "this is hard, and everyone else thinks so too". You're left with a wish to create, but no means to pull it off. 

So yeah, you put a different light on an old issue. You speak about it from an angle most people don't really consider, but I think it is a good idea that you try to highlight it. It might, as you say, 'unblock' some people into trying something again... Hell, I know several W3D projects are literally begging for more environmental artists, so it's not like the whole 'job' is unwanted!

The other videos are somewhat relevant as well, just not as directly. I do what I can to make the end value a bit universal, so whatever you're struggling with or could use a different angle for, the information beneath is available to you.

What's important is that the activity or game or software is secondary. What it's really about is your personal growth and giving a person some extra tools to strategize with and feed those creative desires with inspiration and the drive that might be having some trouble staying on course at times. It's not easy to strive for something in environments where the habitual negative responses of other people bring you down instead of uplifting you further, and that's just one little part of the whole experience I do my best to shed some light on.

So I'm very grateful to be able to provide anyone interested with a boost of some sort, anything that will enrich them in whatever way is most fitting to the situation at hand and assist in developing that fire inside that might have gone out or is having trouble burning brightly. That's what I intend to keep giving to the best of my current ability, so thanks for the meaningful and connected response Raap!

This is definitely an interesting concept (the idea of using games to better yourself) and one that I wholeheartedly agree with. If you want some links on some game theory documentation so that you have more material to work with and discuss, I'd be more than happy to provide you with it. :)

I'd appreciate any material you think I could find useful! Many thanks OWA!

The topics being covered are not only about games either, but also everything that connects to that theme - game dev, storytelling, productivity, creativity, lifestyle... There are many possibilities here and it's a very cool area to explore. I hope to provide as much value as I can with this to anyone who feels this type of thing resonates well with them!
