Hello and welcome!

I'm Ryan Smith. I run a variety of online projects, ranging from games to fiction works to sound design to freelancing.



Here's a video of a game I'm making in RPG Maker VX Ace, alongside Uniques United. It has the conceptual twist of letting you play as the creatures you would normally expect to fight, and turn them into heroes.

  • Mood: Pleased
Play it before you read any game reviews. They spoil so many before people get to experience it for themselves. Here's a game that has charm if you play it with an open mind and experience everything it is:

  • Mood: Pleased
Some people have everything they want, while others end up with the leftovers. Some don't get jack squat, and then there's the poor sap who wants to earn it in an honest way but doesn't know what he can do. He's at the bottom of the food chain because he doesn't know how valuable he is.

It's hard to be self-reliant when you would starve to death within a week if another person wasn't supporting you. How good does that make you feel, knowing you're trying your hardest not to be a mooch, and yet circumstances so spitefully conspire to impoverish you like a mooch?

We've been conned, folks. We don't have to live like this if we're in earnest about finding a decent career, calling, or higher purpose.

I am a sound designer, and a good one. With 3 years of working experience under my belt, I should have a pretty stable career, right? Absolutely not. The ones who have the most experience often are the last ones to be hired. The only people who are able to afford all the nice things in life are the people who have already made it. What about the rest of us? Do we live without and content ourselves to dismal, narrow, darkened lives because nobody thought to step in and teach us what we need to know?

Absolutely not! Why live this way? We do have options, but we have to find them ourselves. At least any treasures we find along the way, in any form, are ours to keep. We don't have to pay tax on wisdom, fortunately, so as Eminem would say - please stand up, and put one of those fingers on each hand up and be proud to be outta your mind and outta control!

You've worked hard for what you've got, don't let some peon suggestion throw you off balance. If there were people prospering during the Great Depression, there's people prospering today. Learn from smart people, hang out with smart people, and stay away from people who try to make you feel stupid. I don't know if we have one life or not but in case it is, let's give it a go. :)
  • Mood: Movingon
If you think high school is tough, wait until your early 20's. I had a friend once tell me "You're way too young to be having a mid-life crisis." That's why they invented the term "quarter-life crisis."

I literally do not have a passion to follow right now, I've tried everything I can think of. Does it really need to take 5 years for me to find something? I'm 22 now but I feel like I'm 52 and 12 at the same time. Part of me wants to start an exciting journey through life, and the other is telling me to hurry up before it's too late.

I've gone on a philosophical roller-coaster and an emotional ghost train. I want to produce something but everything I start turns cold soon after, and it's really starting to bother me.

I can't tell if I'm rubbing elbows with genius or madness. Well, we'll soon find out.

And the best part is you got one back QwO
This made me so happy oh my god thank you so much!
How can I repay you? Do you want me to draw you something?
malfunit Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2015  Professional Artist
You've already repaid me, just by your reaction to the 12-month membership. X3

I just like doing nice things and if I can get 12 months for myself by gifting it to someone, all is well~

(One day, I'm going to save up $200 and get one of my DA friends a "till-hell-freezes-over" subscription, just to see his/her reaction.)
