As a kid, I played countless hours of videogames, and I was horribly depressed and lonely. Those were the hardest years of my life, and I wanted nothing more than to make new friends who played the same games I did and to be happy. But I wasn't able to do it.
Thankfully, I made it through those years. But looking back, I wish I had something to make it easier. So I quit my job as a software developer to make something for the next person who faces that challenge.
It's my hope that this will help some people out.

To make peoplethe focusof gaming
It's the people you play with, the relationships you form, and the memories you create that make gaming amazing.
But most games aren't designed for this. You often get paired with people for short sessions and with little reason to build a relationship with them.
There's a lot of room for improvement.
And because I love
But finding people to make them with has always been one of the most difficult things for me.
Making games takes a serious amount of talent, skill, determination, and most of all dedication. Putting a team together that has those abilities and is willing to buckle down for the months and years requured to put all of that together is hard.
And that's where nubbl comes in. If we're finding peers to play games with, why not find them to build games too? I think it's safe to say that most of us have wanted to make games since we were kids.
