Adventures in Sailing

When not making games I engage in a wide range of hobbies, mostly as a humble dilettante: cooking, cello, electronics tinkering, and Chinese language to name a few. By far my favorite activity outside of work is sailing, and since late 2013 I’ve indulged this passion aboard my own sailboat. Details of my various adventures along with video and pictures can be found on a dedicated blog, here:

And here’s an example of one of the many sailing adventure videos you can find on the site:

Koh Racha Sailing and Diving Trip from American McGee on Vimeo.

I have thought many times of combining game development with sailing. Imagine a sort of “Sailboat Studios,” made up of a small flotilla of boats, each crewed by a small number of game developers. This group would sail around, spend a few hours each day working on their game project, and spend the rest of the time exploring and adventuring together. Having now spent some time aboard doing both, I think the two ideas have some very interesting synergies.

More on this topic in the future. 🙂
