    I'd tell myself to never give up and when it gets hard to keep going on and not to lose hope :)

    The demo can't save. Stop making the same game over and over. It's heartbreak. Also the floppies will go corrupt. It's all heartbreak.

    Stick to your guns, stick to your plans, and most importantly, stick to your word. Temptation not to do so is everywhere.

    Take more time to polish the graphics. Remove all of the \| from the text. Tone down the sophomore humour.

    I would stay silent, because making noise would let first project Em know there was an RM community, and then first project Em would have posted their projects online to be mocked mercilessly.

    u did good waiting until u had a fraction of talent, em.  u did good.

    The first thing I would say is:


    LEARN THE PROGRAM FIRST! 


    LEARN HOW TO DO EVERYTHING BEFORE YOU TRY ANYTHING LARGE!!


    It's a really good thing I didn't post it on this site. That game was a crime against humanity...
