This community post over at Gamasutra really resonated with me, as I’ve started and given up on more projects than I can remember. In fact, that’s why I haven’t posted here in so long: I’ve been caught in the endless cycle of “start a project” -> “hate the project” -> “abandon the project” -> “become demoralized & mope” -> “repeat.” The moping part is what takes the longest, honestly.
I would really, really like to make a game. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid. I have an idea for a game, but I’ve already hit some bumps while trying to create a prototype and it makes me want to quit. But I won’t. Not this time.
