The Struggle

Posted by A Tobias 11 months ago
It's been a long time since my last post here. Quite frankly, I've been struggling a lot recently with crippling depression... which isn't new for me, but which was certainly worsened by finding out that I have a brain tumour. I don't want to say that I've given up being creative; I've spent such a large chunk of my life making things that I can't imagine not doing that anymore. But making games alone is hard and potentially fruitless work, and my failure to connect with other people is really getting in the way of everything.

Fears and Faltering

Posted by A Tobias 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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.
