This was a great read on perseverance and on making games.

“The games industry is a very competitive space and there's a high likelihood you won't even make minimum wage for the time you put into it on your first game. I certainly haven't yet. Try to find what your passion is for making games and what you want to accomplish. If you're just in it for the money, there are easier ways to make money for your time.
