i know my game takes on this site often probably fly a little bit too close to the sun, and i worry that may make people nervous, for understandable reasons. so, i wanna go on the record re: a major misconception.

people who think devs "don't care" are full of shit, full stop
publishers, developers, companies all are complicated entities. and every one of them, even the ones that do the most blatantly anti-consumer stuff, are full of people who care. they just aren't the ones who get to make the decisions.
they usually don't throw their hat in the ring on controversial industry topics bc they don't have the liberty to. or, their outlook comes from a different place, bc they're the kind of folks who can stay optimistic even working in places like that

that's a virtue, a superpower.
i honestly envy people like that, because i don't think i'll ever be one. i use the voice i have now because i have the liberty to use it, and i may not always. particularly wherever i go after this project.

but i give very many shits about games AND the people who make them.
so if you're a professional, in AAA or elsewhere, and anything i've tweeted regarding your work or the industry in general has made you nervous, or made me look like one of those Angry Gamers... i'm sorry. talk to me about it, because your voice matters a hell of a lot to me.
i'm still learning to walk in the shoes of both a dev and a critic. it's a risky path. but i care too much to not strive for what i know this industry, and the great folks in it, can build! i've already grown a lot kinder and wanna continue to grow kinder without losing that fire
why am i writing this now? i'm not sure. i've just been thinking about the strange spot i'm in, and the voice i've been lucky enough to find here. i feel like i have the responsibility to grow more in this dept. that's all!

and as always, thanks for being here, yall!!
