A defining moment in my career as a game developer was when we showed the Searchlight project off at the Burlington Art Hop. We had so many different people enjoy a cleverly disguised game about learning and research. One of the players was this young girl. She must have been 4 or 5 years old. I was the only developer around and had taken some time to explain the basic controls for her. After she was done she come up to tell me how much she loved the game and that I was ‘the best game designer ever.’ My heart melted at that compliment, and I wasn’t even the designer on this project! (that title belonged to Lauren Nishikawa, who did a great job).
