The Spiral

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
Firstly, ∞ here's the Android version of Taming Dreams ∞! I want to talk about TD a bit here, but also my games development as a whole. For years, I've been going around in circles, repeating patterns and getting nowhere. I start projects that are supposed to be short and fast and profitable, but they grow out of control and become too big to manage, so my attention is taken to new ideas instead. However, I feel that with each revolution, I get closer and closer to the point I've been circling. I'm able to take the best parts of my previous ideas and combine them into new ideas that are (I feel) better than those that came before. Creation is largely a process of trial and error anyway; nobody creates a masterpiece without leaving a trail of failures in their wake. My uncertainty about Taming Dreams that I spoke of in my ∞ last post ∞ has led to me looking back on all the games I've started and never finished, wondering whether cannibalising them might lead to the elusive holy grail I've been searching for (that is, a quick-to-make but profitable game). I've come up with four ideas I could potentially explore.

Plans

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
I've been doing research - as I said I would - about the games promotion and marketing scene, and while it all does seem daunting, the more I learn the less scary it becomes, just like with anything. It ceases to be 'impossible' and becomes merely 'challenging'. I've got a lot left to learn, but I'm getting there.

AFC Story Sketches

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
Alora Fane: Creation is a game that I've been making which is largely about making your own 'quests' using a special, easy-to-use editor. These 'quests' are short stories where you design all the characters, maps, monsters, dialogue, etc. The point of the game will eventually be to make and share these quests.

Weekly Update!

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
Whoops, I forgot to write one of these yesterday; I thought it was Saturday and not Sunday. Surely the world is in disarray now because everyone in it cares so dearly about the empty promises and lies of some has-been games developer!!1

Weekly Update

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
Sadly, this week I bring unfortunate news. I finished the story I'd been working on for a month or so - in Alora Fane: Creation quest form, I mean - and showed it off to testers... but the reception was, uh, not good. Apparently the story I'd come out with was disturbing and not exactly well-constructed, and the characters weren't appealing, etc.

Weekly Update!

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
I've got quite a lot done this week! After months of barely doing any development work at all, I'm back at the point now where I'm spending several hours every day working constantly on Alora Fane: Creation.

Weekly Update!!

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
It's Friday, right?!? I think I said I'd write this on Friday, but Sunday seems a better day anyway. Yes. That's my excuse or whatever.

Weekly Updates!

Posted by A Tobias 3 years ago
I'm planning to write a weekly progress report about my games, as I did in the past, specifically AFC. Partly it's to produce hype, but also it's to motivate myself; if I know I need to have something to show off at the end of the week, then it'll encourage me - I hope - to actually get to work.
