I Didn't Die

Posted by A Tobias 10 months ago
I'm currently recovering from brain surgery, which I had last week. Things like this shake up life a lot... but now that it's over for the moment (but not for good), I feel a bit lost. I've been trying to get back to games development, though, so I'd like to write a bit about that here.

Taming Dreams Saving Issue

Posted by A Tobias 12 months ago
Just a quick note: People have told me that Taming Dreams isn't saving properly at the moment. This seems to be related to the saving service I was using (flox) updating or changing or something. I'm currently looking into it. Please bear with me.

Fears and Faltering

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
I've done little work recently, as my mind's still stuck in a state of wandering wondering about worries, loneliness and my uncertain path into the future, though I feel I'm taking steps towards getting out of this mental quagmire. I've been playing a game for inspiration. I held a human brain, which was one of my biggest fears and which turned out to be a positive experience. I drew some comedians!!

Juggling!

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
Agh, sorry about not making fast progress on my games or posting things here recently! I'm not used to having anything resembling a Life, so now that I am getting out almost every day, I'm not doing a particularly good job of handling everything at once. The biggest impediment to progress has been depression, though. I feel at least that I'm improving my life conditions - slowly but surely - so hopefully soon I'll be able to get back on track. Anyway, I'll write here about my plans, what I'm up to, etc.

Taming Taming Dreams

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
While I released the ∞ Android version of Taming Dreams ∞ a while ago, I'm uncertain, conflicted, and unmotivated about where to go from here, though I'm making progress with all of those things, which I'd like to write about here. I'll also address some of the things people mentioned in comments on my ∞ previous post ∞. Mostly, I want to talk about the creative process, the effect that judgement has on it, and various aspects of Taming Dreams that I feel could have been done better based on the feedback I've got so far, particularly in regards to storytelling and character depictions. I'll also touch on the common suggestion that I should be developing for Steam instead.

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.

The Future of Taming Dreams

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
As always, here's a link to the ∞ Android version of Taming Dreams ∞, since attention to it went down a lot when I didn't include one! Speaking of which, the game's not been a huge success so far. I know that's because I've yet to actively promote it, but - while most of the feedback has been positive, some very positive - some statistics and negative feedback makes me wonder about where I should actually go from here...

Delays!

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
I released the ∞ Android version of Taming Dreams ∞ recently, and I'm currently trying to get the iOS version up and running, though it's been taking time because I'm in the midst of exams. Sorry about that! They're almost over now, though, so development should speed up again shortly.

About the number of episodes...

Posted by A Tobias 1 year ago
The latest (2 star) review of Taming Dreams addresses a frustrating thing that others have also brought up, and which I'd like to respond to here because I don't have enough space to reply directly to the review. Basically, it's the idea that the series isn't 'worth it' because the episodes will be too expensive in total and there'll be too much of a delay between their releases.
