Making Games and Mental Health (#Gamedev Audio Blog #2)

This second short mini-podcast audio blog post covers the important topic of dealing with depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges as a game developer or creative.

Here are some of the topics I touch on:

  • Struggling with depression and anxiety as a gamedev
  • Using games as a positive way to express yourself while exercising inner demons
  • The challenges of working in isolation, far outside of the games industry
  • Work/life balance and the toll that overworking yourself can take
  • The dangers of relying on social media as your lifeline to the world/industry
