Game Dev is Great and I Hate It

Look! Below is a screenshot to distract you from the fact that I forgot to post a blog last month! Look at it! Look at it and don't think about the lack of an update last month at all!




...Yeah, sorry about that, everyone. Now that the endgame has been completed, I'm in the perpetual cycle of polishing and improving until release day. The testers have been a great help in providing lots of useful feedback, but that does mean that the task list never gets smaller the more items I check off.

Not that I'm complaining, though! It's a good problem to have.

I may have mentioned this a few blogs back, but due to a new job sucking away 90% of my life, I had dedicated my precious few drops of free time to simply finishing the game first before moving on to the polishing phase. Well, with the game finished, the remaining work is mostly the bland, boring, thankless jobs that I've been putting off because I didn't want to do it. And that karma has bitten me in the ass, so it's time to go back and finish it all off.

I make no claims of being professional.

Anyway, starting this month, I'm gonna put some more effort into pixel art so I can polish off some late game areas that need them. This way, I can actually get back to showing off more screenshots rather than tell you about what I've been doing. Pictures being worth 1000 words and all that. Also, pictures of game footage are more interesting to show off than pictures of OneNote text or the script editor.

Thanks for reading!

Woo, can't wait, Red Nova! Also we probably need more pictures of OneNote text or the script editor in future. But woo, completed game should be fun.

Can I critique your OneNote textfile? Does it follow the three-letter-rule?

Good job on finishing the game even more after finishing it! This may be the less fun part, but you also don't have to worry about your game never getting completed any more. I'm looking forward to seeing all the big and small improvements in the final product!

Showing off OneNote screenshots should have been my April Fool's joke. Now I'm mad I didn't bring this up last month.

Thanks! 1000 words is all it takes to get the nomination? Sweet! Now I know how to abuse the system for future entries!
