100+ Downloads on RMN! & I'm taking a small break

Hello everyone!

I can't believe it, Lullaby reached 100+ downloads here on rmn!
Thank you so so much for playing my game... I am honestly kind of speechless. It legit means the world to me!
To be honest, I never would have thought that so many people would download (and hopefully play!) my game.
It's a little hard to wrap my head around.

While Lulaby still is very much my baby and passion project, I have realized I have a lot to learn about game making still (which is to be expected, since this is my first attempt at making a game).
Everyone's feedback has been really helpful, and though it is still a little nerve-wracking, I appreciate your constructive criticism a lot.

I already know that I am going to be able to use a lot of the feedback given to me for any future projects!

Also, as far as I can tell, Lullaby is pretty well received(?) over on itch.io.

There, I have reached almost 80 downloads - which is amazing! - and there has been a lot of helpful feedback too.
(I even received two ratings, one of which came with a written review that made me tear up - in a positive way.)

I noticed that a lot of people (from what I've seen on itch.io at least) seem to have trouble with the font used in the game. So I decided to add in a little README text file and also put more details into the instructions that are shown before the intro, to avoid any confusion.
Hopfefully that will help.

I honestly can't thank you enough for all of your help and support!
I know I keep repeating myself, but it is true.

With that being said, I think I should take a step back and take a small break from the internet, at least when it concerns Lullaby.

Lullaby is a project that is deeply personal to me.
I always thought the best way for me to deal with past experiences is to channel them into creativity - which I did with my game.
So it makes me especially happy that Lullaby's story seems to resonate with a lot of people!

But I am noticing that I am starting to obsess over it.

I'm checking youtube, twitter, rmn and itch.io multiple times a day (which to some degree is probably normal when you publish a game) and it's always on my mind in some way, even if I am doing something unrelated.
I don't want it to get to the point of it affecting my mental health negatively, so I think I just need a little bit of distance for now.

It's not that big of a deal, but I just wanted to let you all know in case I miss something or don't answer messages.

And that's pretty much all I wanted to say.

Thanks for reading and as always, I hope you'll have an amaying day. Take care of yourselves.

Go take that well deserved break! I know full well how it feels to obsess over the statistics of your game and it ain’t fun. Glad to see you noticed this trend ahead of time and that you are working to avoid it! Now go get some R&R!

Well done on all your hard work and promoting your game! Enjoy your time off, you've more than earned it!
I sometimes catch myself looking at the statistics of my own games too much in one day as well.(albeit its lack of popularity) I think its something we as game developer have to experience. Anyways, I hope you enjoy your time off.
Sometimes it really do be like that... Wish you a good break!

Thank you! It's kinda reassuring to hear that I am not the only one checking in so much. Although I am a lot better about that, since the break I took. Sometimes I til catch myself checking in a lot, but not as much as before.
