Not to be a downer, but of making games isn't your passion and you're just doing it to fund what you really want to do, I would think about pursuing another part of the industry. The video game industry tends to pay less than other programming gigs, and there's a tendency to always be in crunch mode. There's certainly exceptions to this, but I wonder if doing contract work or something that allows you to work remotely so you can either travel or have loads of time off might work better for you.

In the end, though, if you follow your dreams I'm sure you'll figure out a way to achieve them!

Thank you for your concern. My bad for not making myself clear :P

I studied IT before going into University for game development so I know I would hate being in IT even though they get paid much more. I have lots of fun developing games and am definitely not doing it for the money. It's just that I know I have to somehow have a source of income before I can pursue my other passion which makes EVEN lesser money, or even none at all.

I've also been thinking about working remotely or doing some online business stuff so I can travel and work at the same time. Or maybe I can develop a hit game :P
