    But that has gotten too big too, so moved to a more smaller game... That game started as one short story, but developed into three short stories.

    I have some ideas in the back of my mind, but... they're all too big XD
    I just really enjoy creating characters and giving them big adventures... _( :3 」∠)_

    from my exp - starting and stopping projects can dmg my morale. Start with small projects and build from there. A demo for example of a larger project might be quite short and a good starting point for a large project but wont take too much time to create!

    I'm fine with putting them all aside, as they all are in like the beginning stage anyway, so I have more time to properly polish their stories and ideas^^
    I thought so about starting with a demo or small chapter! But I kind of dont feel satisfied to start in that way lol. I'll see if I can come up with something

    You know, my first complete game was actually my 4th game I tried to make. I had to trim all those big ideas into a really small idea, because man, i really want to know the feel of actually complete a game

    Even with that I kept getting an idea like, "what if I add a bestiary? what if I add a statistic menu? what if I add ...." etc etc

    I think if you start with a one-quest story, you will probably wind up at the right size for a first game. Resist the urge to add more to it. Just getting finished with something that you can play takes a lot longer than you think (as you've realized) but finishing something that you can share is priceless!

    And once you have that simple project DONE, it's a lot easier to add to it than it would be to remove things from a too-large-to-finish project.

    To begin, I recommend you make a short game using the resources that the RM you use has. then you can make a short game by creating original resources of yours.

    @Brrt I did this actually a bit to get used with the mapping, but it was just something silly and I wasnt as invested as I would be with doing something fully original, but that just might be the artist in me lol
