    Next month I'll probably have enough tested, written, and organized that I'll feel ready to build my game. Feels like calm before the storm.

    Delivery man tried to keep my stuff for himself and fake a signature saying I received it. The signing device had a date and location stamp

      I complained that I hadn't received and the company said they would send the guy to collect it wherever he delivered and then call me. I only found the geolocation data much later

      People like that shouldn't have jobs as couriers. Kinda like how abusive people shouldn't be working as carers. It amazes me at just how many people work in fields they're not suited for. I'm glad you got what you ordered in the end. Who knows what would've happened if you hadn't said something.

      I got pulled over by a Texas State Trooper on 85, on my way to New Mexico. I'd been on that road for 10 hours, day speed limit 80, night limit 65. Hadn't realized it had turned to night. That cop let me know lol

      Have you seen Fear And Loathing? For some reason I'm imagining this interaction as the one between Hunter S. Thompson (Johnny Depp) and Nick Nolte's cop.

      You do have a good point. I guess it's sort of an honor thing. I could leave it up as it is and let it keep generating money (which really isn't much, except for the last two days. It hasn't grossed $1K yet, though it might by the end of this week), but it's a massively flawed game in its current state.

      If I could predict future sales though, I'd guess that after everyone on the wishlist purchases the game it probably won't sell much after that even if I did leave it up, so I don't think I'll be losing much in the long run.

      If it's a matter of honor, I'd agree with taking it down. Money should always come second to things like that- showing your best work to the world is important, especially if a publisher happens to see it.

      Game development can be really tedious. Music is nice to listen to but for me, I need something more intellectually stimulating, like listening to a podcast on YT while working. Helps relieves the boredom of repetition.

      KazukiT is right though. Playing a game or watching something can inspire new motivation & even spark some new ideas.

      I briefly owned this game, I remember reading about it back in the day and I bought it on GC. I think I stopped playing early though, bc I feel like I remember the player being switched to some skeleton guy with a voice like Guildenstern from Onimusha. Am I thinking of the right game?

      Alright, I just watched a video to refresh my memory. You do control a skeleton guy, but his voice doesn't sound even remotely like Guildenstern. I totally fused those memories together ><

      lol! Yeah, you control the skeleton guy near the start, but only before he becomes skeleton guy. Most of the game you control the ancestors of a specific family throughout history who all have fought skeleton guy, stopping him from bringing about the end of the world by summoning his god.

    One of the benefits of learning how to edit images is that bust/sprite art can be broken apart and recombined in many different ways.

      Stock art pics made in different art styles can become usable together by being adjusted to match each other. This makes every purchase of edit-allowed stock art far more valuable and versatile.

      Change that to coding skill and you're going to change "different art style" with "plugins that aren't compatible with each other becomes compatible".
