Do you believe in fairy tales? I do.

Six months ago I got an email from one of the few female Zandagort players data togel. She had been playing since server two and got quite a few friends in the game. It meant a lot to her and helped her through IRL problems as well. But one of these friends was special. They talked and talked and after five months they decided to meet in the flesh. It turned out so well that at the time of this email they were not only a couple but also waiting for a baby.

Now I got another email from her with an attachment: a picture of her newborn baby Hanna in a cute red bodysuit decorated with a wapiti.

Game development is hard, exhausting, sometimes hopeless and financially a disaster. But these moments make it totally worth it.
