Well, some of you may have noticed (but probably didn’t) that in the last days I disappeared.
That’s because I failed at LD 26 and I was ashamed of coming back here after failing.
Why I failed at LD 26? Well:
- I got sick. Nothing serious but I was definetely not in the mood to make games.
- Motivation. I started to make my game. Then I saw what other people were making. Then I saw how my game was a crap and lost my motivation.
- Theme. No, I will not complain about the theme itself, but I was prepared for other kind of theme. My tools were way overkill and non apropriated for the kind of game I was aiming to make. For example: I was using Box2d in a game were nothing moves!
I think 1 was the main reason.
Well, I learned a lot actually. After 5 hours of work (that was hour 12 of LD) I thought I was done. I couldn’t think in nothing I could add or polish. And I think that’s bad, because the game wasn’t “fun”. Well, after 5 hours of work I was already burning in fever too.
Well, wish me better luck next LD.
