I connect dots. I have no formal education in software development, marketing, business, law, or much of anything related to my role in Pro Wrestling X. And what is that role exactly? Fucked if I know. I know I take full legal and financial responsibility and I have a hand in design, marketing, etc. but what I do best is just zooming out and seeing opportunities.
Case in point that I hope can confirm your risks and dreams; turn over every rock. I met with a local entrepreneur and real estate developer that I hoped would fund Pro Wrestling X. He said sorry, no. Not directly. But he pointed me to a banker friend of his that could set us up with a nice loan. My initial instinct was that traditional bankers are useless about the game industry especially wrestling games. But I knew enough to follow through and meet with the guy because you never say no to an opportunity no matter how dead end you think it might be.
Long story short. After the first 20 minutes the banker drops a Sweet Chin Music reference, stops my presentation, and asks me if I would be willing to pitch Pro Wrestling X to a group of private investors he can personally vouch for.
Well then. That worked well. Follow every lead. Turn over every rock. You don’t know until you know. Conventional wisdom is for conventional losers.
Got an update from our awesome programmer. Not gonna spoil a hardcore update but our lead artist tested the build and found a funny glitch with the new weapons. The glitch turns out to be something you guys might actually enjoy as a new feature. Happy accidents!
