As I've been here for a few days, I figured it's time to introduce myself. So here it goes
I'm Nebula, also known as Esther. Online gaming has been one of my biggest hobbies ever since I discovered text-based muds, some 15+ years ago. I started out on Cardea, went to Neopets, discovered Wajas and later dived into the realms of World of Warcraft and Rift, where in between I visited numerous other games such as Runescape, Aywas, Howrse, LotRO, EverQuest and so on. I've played most styles, from heavy roleplay to pvp and hardcore raiding and went from rookie/newbie to eventually officer and guild-/kinleader.
But being just a gamer wasn't enough for me. During my study (journalism) I learned how to set up simple websites and I got my basics in php and html while working as a moderator for a dutch WoW guild and as a trainee for a dutch website about family oriented holidays and daytrips. A few months ago I got the opportunity to become an admin of a sim breeding game (Tygras) and through that I dived deeper into the world of online game programming and designing. All these experiences have let me to today. Besides still working for Tygras, I'm currently working on setting up my own business in game and website design while also creating my very first sim breeding game. It's a huge undertaking but I'm having blast doing it.
At the moment I don't have a date set for when my game will be ready and launched. My first priorities are to make my business legal and set up a business website. I also have to balance my online time with my offline time: my job, husband, household, our dog & cat, family & friends, Tygras and so forth. But as soon as there is progress, I'll give you guys a heads up.
