    Create (And Live!) Your Vision
    With all of life’s obligations, demands, and hectic pace, it’s easy to get off track from where you’d wanted to be, and feel stuck and like you’re just running on autopilot. On top of that, past disappointments can cause you to give up on your dreams and lead to losing your passion for life. Having a strong, clear vision will put the passion back in your life, help you believe in yourself and your abilities, and give you the tenacity you’ll need to keep pursuing your dreams in the face of disappointment.

    Made by Members: Quintet for Android

    We’re always excited to feature and promote our members’ latest work, and the most recent project from one of our founding Grindists, Carmine Guida, has us over the moon (literally). Carmine is a musician and programmer by trade, and in his spare time he created Quintet, a cooperative party game where players control the same ship through five roles: captain, helm, tactical, engineering, and science. Quintet is already up and running for Windows, Mac, Web Browser (with plugin), and iOS devices, but Carmine has launched a Kickstarter to help bring it to Android. If you’re anything like us (specifically Benjamin our co-founder), you’ve always day dreamed of sitting in a big captain’s chair and shouting, ‘More power to the shields!’ Let’s fund this project to help make that a reality!
