Hi, I'm an aspiring 18 year old game developer and this is my story. Since I was little I was obsessed with video games and as I got older I started thinking about what I wanted to do for a living. Then it hit me. I could use my coding skills and love for art and people to make an educational youtube/twitch channel where I design video games and along the way I'll teach other aspiring creators so they could join in and help if they wanted.
My ultimate goal is to have a whole community of people creating games, kind of like a "for the people, by the people" deal. Unfortunately all I own and can afford right now is my old laptop from 2012 that can't even run something like Unreal Engine 4 without crashing. Thus I need the money to build a PC that can handle 3D rendering, video editing etc.
I'm currently doing small coding projects for people to try and make money for the PC build, but any donations would help bring me closer to my goal and would be greatly appreciated.
