Hi, my name is Bob Berry. I'm the president of Uber Entertainment, a new startup video game company. We talked about doing a developer diary for our new game and we're finally making that happen. We decided to call it "Birth of a Game", a name that has special meaning for me. My wife gave birth to our second child in March right around the same time I left my previous company to start up Uber. In a sense I felt like I was having two children at once! Giving birth to a new company is like being in labor for a whole year. It’s an emotional rollercoaster filled with waves of pain, periods of calm, and finally at the end, a final push with all your might. Now we’re at the point where the newborn company needs 100% attention all the time. And yeah, I have to change the diapers.
I’m so excited to finally be at a point where we can speak openly about the company. For the past several months we’ve been flying under the radar working on prototyping our game and securing financing. It’s been a lot of fun being back in startup mode again. The last time I did this was about 10 years ago!
I was fortunate enough to be able to work out of my house for the first few months. This was a blessing for my wife as I was always around to help out with our newborn or our rambunctious two year-old. When we finally reached a certain critical mass it was time to exit the virtual and enter the physical. Having the development team working together in an office increased productivity dramatically on many fronts.
Some other key members will be posting introductions in the near term. I look forward to sharing with you details of our trials and tribulations!
