The Rising Dawn

I've always wanted to be in the video game industry. Except, I always thought that this dream of mine was some far-fetched 'pipe dream'. I never even imagined owning my own video game development studio though. I always saw the prize job as working for some massive triple-A studio, creating and designing levels as my day job. Once I realized that I didn't want to be in debt up to my neck I completely abandoned that dream. I couldn't bring myself to do it for some reason, and honestly the only reason I can think of was the fear of not being able to land that dream job after completing school. I didn't give up entirely though! I eventually started to use the Unreal Engine to create my own scenes, and that gave me some motivation and drive to pick this dream of mine back up. I planned on making a big, juicy portfolio out of all my game scenes to lean on when I mustered up the courage to apply for that dream job, but I never went through with it. I can't tell you where I fell through— again, but I fell through... Then some wonderful things finally took place in my life, and gave me the courage and motivation to do what made me happy. That dream morphed a bit though, and finally it grew into Ryzendon! Now here I am taking the leap! Call me crazy, but this genuinely makes me a happy person. I love waking up in the morning, filling up my coffee cup, and firing up my machine to build games! Now the real trick is to do it for a living. I'm trying to make sure I don't sink here, so I choose to still keep my day job while pursuing this dream. But It's a new dawn for me, and I couldn't be more excited to be doing something I love to do. So, Ryzendon isn't just a company to me, It's my rising dawn, my new day!

So, establishing Ryzendon honestly wasn't that difficult. The process isn't near as bad as I thought it would be, and only took but a few days to accomplish. Luckily, I had an awesome mentor to point me in the right direction. There's also plenty of guides out there on the internet that can help people out. I even found an extremely detailed guide on my State's government website that spit out links for me to follow so I could do it all online. Too easy, right? So, don't do what I did, and let yourself fall through.
