So, I've been working on my game for a few months now, and I'm enjoying the process immensely. I think it's coming along well, and I WANT to be proud of what I've created. The problem is whenever I look at the game, I can't help but think "this is just an EarthBound clone". It's not like I'm intentionally stealing story beats or anything, and I'd like to think I have enough unique elements to make my game stand out. Even so, I fear that from the outside looking in it's not enough and my inner critic won't shut up. Can anyone else relate to these feelings? If so, how did you deal with them, whether that be by changing your mindset or changing your game?
