I can't make a game, lol.

A Blog Post for GameBanana

In august, a friend of mine suggested a project to me. I do a game intro+ 1 level, he does the sounds/soundtrack. I told him to wait a few months before starting anything.

I had a lot of irl work in August, so I din't do anything till September. In Mid September - Mid October I started making concept art and then I watched a lot of Unity videos (I don't know how many wasted hours). And watching all those videos disencourage me to make the level as big as I wanted, because it would've taken way too much of my time (irony). I decided 1 level is enough, also no intro (lol).

November came and I... worked 4 hours in total... that was today by the way. I forgot what I learned from the unity videos too, so I spend 6 more hours today just so that I can put my character on a block...

I'll need, what? 60 more hours just modding a level that will look terrible, cuz I forgot how to work with Gimp since I stopped modding in general because of this. I stopped playing 1.6 too.

What a waste of my time. I keep forgetting how lazy I am. :D

    Solution: Watch again tutorials and do not rush watching 90 tutorials, take it easy and dont waste too many hours per day. Same when you start to work in your game... Work in small parts day by day.

    No one accuse game development to be easy, but the key is to start small. Really small. If your idea isn't working out, you're not thinking small enough.
