Letting Hanging On Go.

It's been 7 months now about and I haven't even touched the files for the project or done any real work on Hanging On and I'm finally letting it go. This personally upsets me because I enjoyed the project but honestly I never got anything done past the graphics you saw there was literally no gameplay haha.

That being said stuff did come out of this project, I learned to do pixel art at least half decently and a whole other lot of things regarding game design. But in the end I really worked to escape personal problems and it did help with that. (And I won't lie I really liked being able to get attention on a project for the first time).

What have I gotten done in this time I've done pretty much nothing though? Well...
-Got to work with a great group of people including Nessy, pianotm, and badluck
-Got greenlit TWICE!
-Started drawing regularly again.
-Have been invited to attend a VR conference in March hosted by Kill Screen.
-Started to work on Saint Traffic Cone with Yugo.
-I can code some stuff by myself now in JavaScript and GML.
-Have returned to working on 3D modeling and have improved!
-Played 130+ hours of MGSV and am at 87% *cough* I mean what?

I need to thank this entire site for helping me grow and yelling at me about my sprites but personally I need to thank Unity for grabbing me by the hand and helping me get into game design for the first time seriously and make something with structure even if it didn't turn out to sturdy in the end it has lead me only to improvements and a better person to work with.

I'm already improving and I'm ready to share some of the stuff I've been working on soon with all of you!

Ach this is beautiful. So achingly beautiful. Having played Prelude, I'm curious to see how it ties in. I'm guessing same protagonist. Also, judging from the title graphic, it'll have something to do with a story existing in two separate timelines, or a monochrome world and a colourful world existing side-by-side like parallel worlds. Maybe the colourful world is the world of the main character's imagination, a vibrant realm contrasting to the mundane and possibly even grim realities of the "real" world. Cool stuff.

Thank you everyone! And no actually the main protagonist of Hanging On is Addie, the girl on the train sleeping but the raincoat kid is a main character in the story. And for story details I don't want to give to much away but yes there is realities of the real world elements through out the game.

Really like your work so far. Prelude was pretty sweet snack and this looks even better. Like pistachio train-shaped cake. I love the portion of details you put in, while keeping minimalistic look. Birdie sitting on the train is so adorable. The idea with saving and taking photo at once is really neat too.
I am pretty positive about this one so far. Keep on!
I am waiting! :) Prelude was a nice game.
I liked mother and I like this game's premise subscribe

;_; Aw, cancelled? That's a shame. Oh well, I'm glad that this got started, as it got me and charblar to meet and it got her into making games on this site.
