This is my 1st video game, I coded it in p5.js. I learned this language by watching Daniel Shiffman on YouTube. It only took me 2 weeks to do it since I already knew C++ and EasyLanguage (the latest being exclusively used in finance).
It probably is the first video game teaching social media strategies ever. In addition, it is the first game where the music composer for the game (me in this case) is paid each time the game is played at no cost to the player.
Why did I create this game?
1- I am now mostly interested in combining my knowledge in different fields to create unique experiences and proof of concepts.
2- This creation is a way for me to inspire artists and business owners to become more creative at the way they interact with their audience, fans and customers.
3- Social Media changed my life. I was stuck in the french countryside in my early 20s and was dreaming about being in the US to work with the finest music artists. It happened!
How? I worked really hard for it (I practiced piano 10 hours a day for years, transcribed hundreds of jazz/pop/latin albums...) and used the hot social media of that time, MySpace, to communicate about my skills. I got in touch with some of the most famous music executives and artists in the US. I got my 1st song placements with international music stars, and got invited to Los Angeles by one of the biggest songwriters of all time, Walter Afanasieff and executive Chris Ivery...The music I created during my first two weeks in Los Angeles received 3 Grammy nominations and sold over 10 million copies worldwide! That is life changing!
4- The game could easily be adapted to different learning and interactive environments.
5- This was a good exercise to practice what I learned with Daniel Shiffman.
6- It's a fun way for people to discover my unreleased original music!
7- It is passive income for me (yes, the value of a stream is low, but what if the $MUSIC coins value take off? Many coins moved more than 10000% in 2017...For me, It's all about lining up opportunities. It only takes one to work out to get your life to a whole new level...)
8- It's a great way to take advantage of the free traffic I generate from my 400k+ followers on Twitter!
9- It's an interesting proof of concept that is landing me some great speaking opportunities about creativity around the world! Not bad for one of my 1st coding projects!
