      Here today, gone tomorrow - and after over a decade, still haven't made a SINGLE game. (Played a lot of 'em tho! Heh.)

        It definitely takes time and devotion. There is also a great deal to learn. For as much work that you put in, sometimes it doesn't seem you do a whole lot.

        Been there... still there. I'm a decade-no-games-made maker as well. It's easy to get discouraged. My only advice is to keep trying and find a system that works for you. I found agile (cuz that's what we use at my job) and it's helped me actually get builds out. Any kind of progress is better than no progress :) good luck!

      Back after an almost 2 year hiatus (if anyone cares).  Just purchased MV.

      Here I am almost a year later, all plans for our fledgling development on hold or likely permanent hiatus, and I'm back to puttering around on my own...life I guess.

      So, that's in then - I'm officially "sucked back in" to the world of indie game development. I'm either incredibly nuts or I need to eat more chocolate! (or both!)

        Did you just say CHOCOLATE?!

        I say both. Nuts and chocolate go well together, after all.

        You can eat chocolate while you're making games. Best of both worlds :)

        I love it - though this one will probably push my nerdy factor right over the edge - but I actually say "banana beans" quite frequently and "ohh mylanta" - I think I need help!!! LOL!

      So what kind of games are you making?
      1. Ari

        To be honest, not entirely sure what you'd call it - I suppose I'm hoping it will turn into a sort of melding of a strategy/sim and quest type game. No combat or random encounters though - at least not in the "traditional" sense.

        cool, when I buy the rpg maker vx ace program I am gonna make lots of final fantasy and summoner like games. I actually made a full game that only takes about 2 or 3 hours called tournament of the ages.

      Wow, that was an ugly flu/cold - so bad my darn EYES hurt. LOL - but think I'm slowly on the mend now and hopefully have enough energy to spend a little time working on my game

        You can double post after 72 hours of your last post if no one else made a post (that's a lot of post), so you can just BUMP it yourself or make the post anew.

        Feel free! :) Isn't it funny? Most people think of being home with hours of freetime as a complete luxury - but after doing it for awhile now (forced due to some personal circumstances) it becomes as stressful and weighty as anything, and I'd gladly trade it in for being too busy with work and other things...

        I got the same situation, Ari. I have a lot of spare time after work, and recently I have been working like crazy on my game.. It's a alot of fun though so I'm not really complaining :)

        Yeah, I'm actually looking forward to really throwing myself into trying to be a game maker. It's a personal challenge as well - because for years I _was_ working in the commercial gaming and social networking arena, but mostly from the "office" side. I did project management, and some game design (concept level) and managed other very talented artists, programmers, musicians, etc. So it's definitely interesting to see if a talentless hack like me (i.e. management *chuc...

        I am actually learning quite a bit from them - though I still find the whole "character" setup a bit boggling. (Experience gain, system - and I don't plan on using that much anyway in the game(s) I'm planning so I guess that's not a huge deal. Still, I figure the more I understand the tool the better I am able to "work around" it. :p But yeah, they are very well done and very helpful. :)
