How do you move from being an aerospace engineer working on missile systems to running your own video game development company?
That’s part of the story of Dineth Abeynayake, founder of Foxie Games. Foxie produces mobile-based games that sell across the world, some of which lead their category.
It’s a pretty fascinating story, and we cover a lot in this interview on how to start and build a company. If you’ve got a side hack going on, this is well worth the listen.
Some key themes that come out in this interview include:
1. How to leave a stable career to pursue your passion
2. What’s involved in the game development cycle
3. How an entrepreneur moves from doing it all themselves to relying on their team
If you have a creative itch that needs to be scratched, I’m sure you will enjoy Dineth’s story.
