Many years ago, I used to code independent/hobbyist computer games on the Amiga 500. Very happy times well spent. I went on to do other things, playing guitar in bands, having kids, going grey.
I've recently discovered PlayCanvas, Clara.io and Ohm Studio. These collaborative tools have rekindled my love for collaborative independent game development. These tools really do feel like the creative freedom that an Amiga 500, Soundtracker, Amos Basic and Deluxe Paint unleashed. Publishing games via the internet is an amazing opportunity, especially in comparison to squeezing games onto and distributing floppy disks.
Yes... I'm that old!
I have a lot to learn in terms of PlayCanvas (plus Clara and Ohm Studio) but I'm excited about the possibilities.
