  • I wish I can work faster on my game. But I don't want to get burned out. :(

    If you are working solo, make a to-do list / tree.

    Helps you keep track of what there is still to do and feel accomplished once you have certain branch done :).

    Continue to do what you feel comfortable with. If you push yourself too hard, you might grow to hate your work. I know that's happened to me before.

    you don't need to work fast than the others like you chasing the deadline. it's not good for yours.

    you need a time to rest,like playing games,reading a news,watching videos & more for your relaxation.

    My imagination works faster than my development process. At least, I can take pleasure in treating it as an adventure. :)

    I'd be surprised if you were capable of developing something quicker than you were able to imagine and think. :p

    Developing faster than thinking is the problem with games today sadly...

    Everyone's imagination can come up with more (hundreds of times more!) than they'll ever be able to make into a reality. The key is to make sure that you're picking out the best ideas to actually develop - and to have the discipline to stick to the development process for that great idea instead of chasing a new idea every week!
    Still working on Chapter 2. I originally said it was done, but decided to extent it a bit more because I felt the story was too fast-paced for my liking.
    I don't know how fast everyone works, but it usually takes me three-four months to finish a chapter. Mostly because I usually spend one hour a day to work on the game. Then I need to spend some time thinking on the story and drawing characters.

    Is it normal or abnormal?

    One hour a day, nearly every day, sounds like an incredibly healthy way to approach your game dev hobby, honestly. I wish I could be that healthy about it!

    If you're only committing an hour a day, though, months to complete a chapter sounds about right, and even a bit low (meaning you're making efficient use of your time).

    A new companion for the second chapter for the female protagonist's route. Although I say new, this character is one of the four original character that I have planned from the beginning. She underwent some redesign as I improved my drawings.

    Handshake protocal activated.

    Developing chapter 2 for the male protagonist had its highs and lows, but at least I am getting close to ending it and move on. :)
    Been slightly struggling with developing the latest chapter, I think I will downscale my ambitions and make it more linear.

    Linear is better if solo, as handing branches takes forever. I had branching endings just based on a choice you make at the end of the game and it took one day for each ending in the end.
    Good thing I asked my friend to playtest one of my chapters for me. He found bugs that I wasn't aware of. :D

    The more playtesters you have, the more bugs they will find. Solution ... don't have playtesters.
    As I am very soon going to let my friends play the demo of my game, I am fixing those annoying color lines that appears on top of the characters head durng battles :blush:

I ran out of paper sheets to draw, so I guess I'm forced to do digital for a while now...
