Q: Woah! SAMER!? You're back!!! Did your new game come out!?!?!?!?!?!
A: No. It did not. I know I know. In my last blog post I said that the next time I post an update here on the blog, it will be an announcement for the official Steam page for my new game. But things just don't always worked out as planned okay man?
Q: So, there isn't a new game announced/coming out today!?! But your last blog post said...
A: No. Not today. No new game just yet. I know, I couldn't keep my promise from the last post but let me just expla.....
Q: Are you even still working on a new game or did you just stop creating games!?!
A: Of course I still make games! Actually, that's what I'm here to talk about today! Lets get started :D
Okay everyone, I have been away from the blog for a while and as mentioned above as well as my previous post, I was suppose to have my next Steam game/Steam page up for my next game the next time I posted, which was suppose to be this post right here but, as you can see, that didn't happen. I apologize for not being able to keep my promise and deliver but things happen and everything does not always go as planned. So, there has been a change of plans.
My biggest problem is that I can never just stay dedicated to one project at a time. I constantly find myself creating a ton of assets, art, mechanics for a game and then stop half way through. Then I start working on a completely different project and so on. It's like this never ending cycle of creating unfinished game projects for me. It is not something that I am proud of because what's the point if all of the projects aren't finished, what's the point if i'm actually not putting any new content out there? Right?
So do I still make games? Yes, I most certainly do. I haven't been working on A game project. I have been working on MANY game projects. To many multiple projects that I lost track of and it got out of hand and now, I am sitting on at least 5-7 maybe even 10 unfinished game projects and it is driving me crazy!
So here's the plan. I need to change my development process. Starting this month, I'm going to stop creating new games and focus on finishing those other games. I'm going to go through all of my other projects, organize them and work through them one by one and then start releasing one new game after the other.
Each game is different, some are shorter then others, some are longer, some have more plot while others focus on just gameplay, some are simpler games while some are more complex, etc. All the games vary greatly from each other. Hopefully, I will have the first one done and out by the end of this month. It will be a short toon styled game. That will be first and then i'll go from there. So, expect lots of new games from me in the coming months!
before I go, here's some WIP screens from the various game projects I'm working on:
Looks like some cool stuff right!?!
Yeah I know!
