If I had hair I’d be ripping it out right now. I was so happy when I finished my game, felt like a huge weight was off my shoulders. Those hours upon hour of coding finally produced something fruitful. I breathed a sigh of relief…
And then it happened. People found bugs in my game. I was disheartend, that euphoric high I had after completing my game came crashing down… I franticly searched my code to see why these bugs existed. Then I saw my mistakes… the simple rookie mistakes I had made… man I wanted to kick myself in the ass, how could I have made those stupid rookie mistakes!
So I have some advice for you all, two words. BETA TEST, BETA TEST, BETA TEST!
Test everything! I cannot stress this enough…
Seems I need to update the “What I’ll do better next time” with this tidbit of information.
- I will test everything in my game to make sure everything works the way I intended it to
