Hey guys, it's Wesley Sappington. I'm the leader of Eyesight Technologies, and also a programmer.
I'm writing to you at 1:24AM on a Sunday, so excuse the typos. As you get to know me more, you'll know that I'm a hardcore night-owl. The day doesn't start until noon, as far as I'm concerned. Haha. Glad we had this chat, can I sleep now? No, no I can't because it's time to convey some actual information to ya'll.
A big part of game development, aside from the tech aspect, is the marketing. The biggest challenge of 2019 seems to be getting heard. I know it sounds super boring to all of you but it's actually pretty cool, just the idea that other people are seeing our stuff. Honestly, for me, the notion that other people are going to be running my code all over the world is pretty awesome if a little terrifying.
Anyways, get to the point already! This week I emailed some local reporters for the magazine and other news sources. I got a number of responses. One reporter actually wanted to conduct an interview over email immediately, and he sent over some questions. A few minutes ago I sent over my interview response. Pretty cool, right? Our first ever message to the press...
Anyways, that's the biggest update for this week. Game dev is going well, we're cruisin' towards some game footage in the near future so stay tuned!
