      Sounds like you need a break. WHen you start feeling too busy or stretched thin, that's your brain telling you that you're doing too much and you need some time to unwind and just be. Go rest and just switch off for a couple of days.

      Doing some research is a must when developing a game, and also finding out which option is the best one for what you are trying to achieve. What is wrong is going for too many features that are not even needed (feature creep).

      To help you understanding what is good and what is not for your project I recommend reading "MDA, a Formal Approach to Game Design and Game Research" by Hunicke, LeBlanc, Zubek, 2004.

      It is a short essay (5 pages) that explains how to approach Game Design in the most efficient way. There are other documents, but I deem this one the most concise and informative, in short: it is a good starting point.

    RPG Maker taught me the true importance of naming variables normally, using functions and keeping proper documentation.

      I heard people use maps that are only for cutscenes, isn't it confusing though?

      I find it easier to manage. Sometimes, a map ends up cluttered with so many events that it becomes a pain to work with; this often happens when you have a few different cutscene events, plus the standard map events, on one map. I don't do it for every map, just for certain ones.

      I usually have a lot of events on a single map, so I use picture labels to know immediately which are cutscenes, mini cutscenes, initialization, teleports, etc. So I don't have any blank events.

      I thought about using copies of maps for cutscenes but I feel it would make me more confused than it would be helpful to me. But I understand it might be helpful to other people.

      @Heirukichi It's not much more convenient because you're still limited to constrained text boxes and it doesn't solve the original issue of more convenient dialogue, either. Look at this mess: $game_message.add("Hello")
      While in something like Renpy you can just type:
      "Hello"
      But maybe that's not fair, because afaik in most game engines the dialogue scripting is a mess.

      You can bind multiple script boxes together using proper ruby knowledge and, on top of it, you can use a single string for multiple dialogues (not many are aware of it though). Even so, it is still better to press a button every 26 lines rather than pressing multiple buttons every time.

      Pleasant dreams are nice. They're like little sleepy treats for your brain. Have you ever dreamt that someone close to you had done something wrong, and woke up angry with them? I have. lol. You know it was just a dream, but you can't exactly control your emotions.

      @Poryg i think most of people will wake up from nightmares, unless, that deep inside you don't want to wake up from it =)
