for my taste I was already too long absent :o

Since a few days I seem to be sick or something similar. I wanted to work on my game and write into my blog and I wanted to do alot of other things at home, but I always was too tired to even think properly :/ I don’t even know where it’s coming from and what to do about it…it’s really annoying.
The only thing I know is, that it has nothing to do with motivation, maybe I’m having some kind of burn-out?
Sometimes I wished, I would have started this way earlier, but I don’t think it’s a good idea to dwell in “what could have been” or “what ifs” in general.

Hm…now that I think about it, it’s possible that I did indeed got a little bit stuck, because every time I thought about my game, I felt like I’m a bit aimless. Because I have not really defined what exactly my next goal is.

Additionally I feel overwhelmed everytime I’m thinking about making the action bar, since I really don’t know where to approach it from. Interestingly, I was reading about this issue regarding Indie Game development (or any kind of self determined work) that it usually means, that I have not split my tasks into small enough chewable pieces. Because all the overwhelmedness comes from not being able to see how much I need to do to reach my goal.
Oh yeah! That makes alot of sense!
Hah πŸ˜€ Thanks Blog for making me write down my thoughts and come to some kind of revelation XD

I guess I have to go through my plans again and see where I can break down goals into smaller ones πŸ™‚

  1. I have felt the same way during development of I project I had, without a goal,or plans or anything I burned myself out.
    I but that one on a hiatus for a much simpler project.
    Anyway best of luck with your game development.

      1. There’s that, but I was more like,”I’ve worked on this for 2 years and I still didn’t get far, or anywhere for that matter. Might as well make a way simpler game.”

  2. Nah. I decided to at least make a demo of my current project before I get back to slightly work on the bigger game.
