About Me

Thanks for showing an interest in my website.  I hope you found what you were after.  If not, please send me an email at contact@michael-bateman.com or tweet me on my new Twitter @IndieDevBateman and I’ll try and help. I guess the first thing to say is that aside from the work you’ll find here I have a full time job.  I live in West Sussex, England, and my job is a typical 9-5 that pays the bills.  When I’m not working or doing the other 101 jobs that come with being an adult, you’ll find me here - making video games or writing about something. I have always loved playing video games and one day a few years ago, I had an urge to try and make my own.  Over the past couple of years I have taught myself to code in GameMaker GML, JavaScript, HTML, CSS and PHP.  I have also learnt some animation skills and built a website.  I want to share what I have learned along the way by making a few tutorial videos.  Tutorials made by others have been very useful to me, so it’s nice to contribute back into this community.  You may also see that I like to write.  I have written a fiction novel which I aim to publish in digital format at some point in 2017.  To keep a diary of my journey I am writing a blog, which you can read here.  This covers everything, as I want to look back at the highs and the lows, so that - hopefully - in a few years, I can see how far I’ve managed to come! So to sum me up: I love spending time making games, learning code, writing stories and making tutorials.  At the moment it doesn’t pay the mortgage or fix the boiler, so it remains something I squeeze into any spare corner of free time.  Maybe one day... If you would like to talk about anything, please get in contact. Thanks, Michael
