Finish your abandoned RPG

At the start of this year, I resolved to move onto new projects every month! I thought it was time for an update on how that’s going.

My February game is Big Hero, and it’s going really well. I started this last year around June or so and only worked on it for three or four days, but it’s a project I’ve thought about quite a bit since. Over the last week or so I feel like I’ve started to get into a groove with it, and I’m excited about how it’s developing!

Unfortunately, I probably won’t have time to actually finish it this month, just because there are so many other things happening in the next two weeks that I want to do instead – Klik of the Month is tomorrow night, Mini Ludum Dare 16 is this weekend, the 371-Pirate Kart is next weekend, and at some point before the end of the month I also want to try making a NotGame. Oh well!

My January game was an untitled first person shooter. What with January being VVVVVV month and all, I never really got this project to a point where it had any momentum. All that’s really implemented here is a basic raycaster in flash.

Right at the start of the year I said that I want to make more shooters this year, and this was supposed to be a first attempt at trying out a particular approach I’m curious about. If I have the time and inclination later in the year I’ll revisit it.

    Man, I’m happy to see you working on anything, but since I only get to experience things that you complete to a level of satisfaction that you’re okay with releasing to the public, I really hope you finish something to that level.

    Ever a fan,

    Cheers 🙂

    I am really liking how Big Hero is developing, so I’m thinking I might just forget about Ludum Dare and the NotGame and totally focus on it instead for the rest of the month. Especially since this LD theme might be a bit too tricky for me…

    Is there a reason why your KOTM, LD, or notgames entry cannot be your February game?

    I guess I sorta see all them as “minor” games, whereas my monthly games are meant to be a little more ambitious. I guess it doesn’t really matter, though.

    Looking forward to Big Hero!
    And if you ever make a first person shooter I’ll be right there to play it! =0
    Do what you like. I don’t mind waiting for any game from you.
