This is just one example of someone’s life who was changed by Sandbox! There are many more but this is from a student of mine. Thank you David for permission to share it!
As I’m sure you noticed I was just accepted into RPI for their Game & Simulation arts and Sciences program which is game design, my dream. I couldn’t express in words of how thankful I am to have met you in my life. Truly without you I would not be going to RPI. You introduced me to game making and made me sure thats what I want to do. I got much needed practice and experience in the field from you. By entering us into the RPI competition was the icing on the cake for me, which once again was thanks to you. Without you I don’t know if I would be going to RPI or be still interested in this field. My 94 average did not get me into RPI, my portfolio and work got me in. and that consists of all sandbox things. I can sit here all day and tell you in each different way of how its thanks to you that I’m getting in but I think you get the point. This isn’t a common thank you letter, i mean from the bottom of my heart that I wouldn’t be accepted if it wasn’t for you. I’m not exaggerating I know 100%. You are a true inspiration for me and other people that know you. I have had, do and will look up to you for the rest of my life. You stuck with me through all my horrible maps, and childish immature nature and without your patience and time my life would be completely different.
On another note I know you’ve heard it a billion times from me but im starting to map again to redo ogro. I truelly enjoy that game. With senior year, and colleges I have been super busy as I’m sure you are and I’ve planned out most of the game and am about to start mapping.
thank you so much again for everything you’ve done to me. and i really hope to talk to you soon!
