A lot of people answered on the topic: "where are you based" and I thought it was interesting to see the diversity.

What would also be interesting is what age groups are generally attracted to making games as a hobby? I would guess people in their twenties but I might be wrong.

Everyone can add his (or her, though I doubt we have a lot of women here) age here.

I'll start :) :

age: 26

(Each language was not USED together, I just moved onto learning a new language after finishing a few books on the previous ones, lol)
