It's slightly bit late, the new lunar year, the year of the rabbit, has started a week ago, but not too late to spice it up with some properly juicy, overambitious and quickly abandoned resolutions. We all have 11 months to left to fulfill them and it clearly is easier to stop smoking in February than in January.

Last year, I think we skipped this thread. And it was a worse year for that. All of us can recall Misaos and lack of epic grandiose adventures (I guess epic and grandiose have similar meanings). Our health got worse and our kids meaner. Some of us even got addicted to anime (not me fortunately, I'm happy with smokos). So, we should renew this ancient tradition and set up some goals. They can be connected to gammak, rmn or to life in general.

I think I have many things I would like to accomplish this year. I finally managed to finish my degree earlier in January and I'm going to be 30 after all. But I also prefer to keep my lists short. 4 or 5 items are ideal. I don't think I have any gammak related goals. In my current situation, they would be naive at best. I don't have many rmn or games or media related goals tbh. I just want to stay some time without a computer, but that's not really a resolution. Here it is (important resolutions are bolded and secondary goals are in italics):

1. Travel to Vietnam for my friend's birthday party
2. Find a proper job
3. Rent a flat or a room with normal living standards
4. Finish and review Soma Union
5. Climb a route rated 7 or more

The first one is dependent on me finding the job soon enough and saving up enough money.
That's why the second goal is the most important and it directly connects to the third. After binge writing my thesis, my living conditions ain't the best. I don't have a lot of privacy, I don't have my own room and I'm moving between two cities very frequently. I don't need a well-paid job, but I need a regular income close to a single place, where I can have my stuff, sleep, cook and have some privacy.
My only gaming goal is humble for a reason.
The last one is sport related. I think this is a good year for getting better at climbing and more importantly working on my physical condition. The goal is to climb up a route a semi-decent rock climbing person can finish no sweat.

Thank You Cap_H, ♥ good luck with these endeavors.

Me, I mostly wanted to post in this, this year to hold myself accountable. Last year was awful. The worst. The majority of the bad stuff is now out of the way. This year doesn't look like it's gonna be shaping out any better, at least around my area:

...But I mostly wanted this thread to exist this year, cause I wanna finish 6 tech demos then try to release them the following year. If there's any reason why I couldn't finish it this year, at least peeps know what I was working on.

-1)a dumb thing
0) another dumb thing
1) Very short, not as good, not a steamed hams sequel, but it's rpgmaker2k3
2) Final Fantasy V: B@BB
3) Very short, rpgmaker2k3 tech demo based on "Cliff Hanger" Stallone

4) Sabin Blitz Tutorial w/ sidewinder.
5) Very short, thing esby asked me to do years ago. might tie into this next years misao promo, similar to steamed hams clincher.
6)Beyond Oasis/Story of Thor, Intro Tech Demo. (similar to the YS3 Wanderers of RMN I did years ago)

Please post your gammak goals this year, it helps motivate the rest of us. I'm personally looking forward to machine that breaths. I feel reading and following it's game development journey is quite admirable, especially when there's shakesup or delays, because that's where the most important lessons are learned - sharing these stories helps us become better creators - check the game out when you have the chance to. I wish there was more guys doing this sort of this work and writing about it in journals.

But yeah, good luck everyone!
Good luck to both of you I hope you make it to Vietnam this year Cap_H

and good luck on making 6 tech demos LordBlueRouge. 6 is a big task to me.

The goal of this year for me is monthly updates for Glory's Fools until the project is finished.
February, I'm hoping to have the databasing an majority of the maps handled. After that I'd like to work on getting trailers and promotional art out of the way.
I've managed to work on it everyday this year so far and I'd like to keep that energy going forward.

I'm hoping for a fall release date and after that, I think I'll work on either a tragedy or noir. Either way though I plan on getting Glory's Fools done first and foremost.

My resolutions for 2023, going big!

1: Finish Chronicles Meteorfall, at long last.
2: Get more hours at my job (and don't get fired)
3: Watch some anime I've been holding off on watching for far too long (Madoka Magica, Steins Gate 0, P4 The Animation, Charlette, Love is War, Death Note, To Your Eternity, Sailor Moon, Card Captors, Erased, Konosuba, DBZ Abridged, etc)
4: Begin my transformation into being my ideal self (gimme them tiddle skittles)

Late to the party, but I got a few things in mind for this year to reach:
  • Make a gam (very important)
  • Learn Japanese
  • Earn and save about $1700 dollars(from $2700, because my boss forgot I existed)
  • Get an actual PC (laptop scrub) (Budget is around ~$900)
  • Beat the grueling circuit that is your village road.

This time I can finally do those things. If not, guess we can just say taking a step is better than standing on the same tile of the floor.

+1 my brother in christ ♥.
I'm even later, but I'll do it!

1. Finish the demo of the silly RPG I'm working on
2. Release version 1.0 of "Saffron", my graphics framework
3. Fix the roof in my grandpa's woodshop
4. Actually finish a TTRPG campaign I'm running instead of it running out of steam.

I would put "Play and finish Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom" on there, but that's going to happen whether I set it as a goal or not.
Future Ruler of Gam Mak
Better late than never, right?

-Finish any of my game dev projects
-Pass both my semesters with flying colors
-Become fully economically independent from my family
-Learn Japanese
-Start planning the coup on the Paraguayan Government
-Exercise more
-Read the Bible daily again
just update for the sake of updating.
this year is already flying by.
Didn't get a whole lot of stuff done.
But a lot of stuff came up? Also a lot of good news that might make some things easier down the road.
Hoping the summer will allow for a bit more free time.

All I got done was the april fools joke. and snake swearing in french in metal gear solid.

Seeing Final Fantasy Essence being remade in RM2K3 this year was really cool and kind of got me re-motivated. Also watching orochii playthrough "One Final Burial" was neat - I kind of wish people talked more about how plans changed throughout the year and how we try to adjust them to current circumstances? Sticking to a plan is important but also changing it so it'll be easier to fit into your circumstances I feel like is important too.
I dunno.

Gonna try and work on something next month, sleep is just a real problem currently.
I've got a few

- Pass probation at my new job (Database Administrator)
- Buy my first house (been saving since 2017)
- Finish Reindeer Story
- Do social media outreach for Reindeer Story (websites, streamers,etc.)
- Lose some weight
- Consider future game development ideas (and potentially team development)
Currently dealing with my locker.
Alright, might as well do a half-year update.

Updated savings goal to $1700 because my boss didn't pay me for two months. Though, it's more because he got sick and then his kid got sick as well. That doesn't mean I should slack though. I ended up slacking for three weeks before I finished one of the tasks that was given to me. Really cool idea, Vacc.

Not only that, I only need two month's worth of work so I can finally have my PC! If I keep up my pace, that is. Still, my pace is good enough. It's just that I have to contend with other stuff in my life such as college and the impending doom that is 4th year. Gotta do my thesis at that point.

As for the Japanese one, I don't think it's that much feasible considering my current habits. I might have to go for a complete turnover if I really want to be fluent in it. I just don't want to read Japanese, I also want to speak it. If I do, I get the chance to possibly work in Japan in the future... after a few years of return service in my country.

And finally, getting fit. As much as I'm earning money so I can go to the gym, I still want to see how far I can go in this mini-circuit that I've routed it. It's a 2-miles worth of pain that I intend to do three time per week (instead of daily, because it nearly broke my joints) that consists of three loops. First loop is just walking. Second loop is jogging. Third is walking. Wake up at 6 AM. Rinse and repeat. Of course, my problem again is habits. It's hard to remove them.

That's also why I'm leaning away from competitive games nowadays. As much as it's fun to play with people, there's not much I can do if the only thing I'm doing is just clicking heads. I have a lot of things that I wanted to do, and I don't want future me to be disappointed in the fact that I got caught in by a tidal wave because of said friends. Hell, I made sure that I'm not that completely a drunkard considering the streak they're doing every week.

And that's all there is. Gotta keep shape, gotta keep making. Besides, I get more out of doing something than thinking that it will be me with my unrequited love.
