FOR UPCOMING GAME STAY TUNED
sorry i haven’t posted anything in a while! been quite busy but the dust is settling
here’s the title screen i made for atius, you can see it in a higher quality here
thanks so much for your support! i’ll answer this publicly too cause it might help someone, even though i don’t have a ton of experience yet.
i would say one big thing for me was just taking breaks… i did make the little game in about a month with a bunch of other schoolwork and other projects to do butttt i also played an upsetting amount of league of legends haha x_x which might seem like a waste of time but honestly, sometimes i think you just need a break, so you can not only get out of your rut but to also go back to your projects with open eyes.
i also painted a lot on the side, even if i didn’t necessarily show it to everyone it was relaxing.
also one thing that helps for me is setting yourself deadlines, but make them extremely hard deadlines. i’m someone that works best under pressure so i simulate that myself, especially when i’m not very motivated. basically i’ll give myself a task and a timeframe to do it, and i /have/ to come up with a solution, even if it’s the most hackfucked thing ever. then i at least have something “finished” and i can always go back and fix it.
otherwise just draw every day and keep pushing through. good luck, i hope your share your game with me!
right now a couple of things actually! i’ll answer public just so everyone can know.
while doing my little flash game, i was also helping out with doing concept art for project atius. i also did some 2d work but that’s not in their build currently; i’ll post it up when it is. you can see the logo i made though!
i’m also going back to working on a 3d environment in UDK with the same partner i did project eve with (i still need to clean those concepts up…). we’re also both talking about making a unity game together after we finish up our new environment. more details about that when i cross that bridge.
in terms of my flash projects again uh… who knows? i was thinking of making a game for lordminion777 next, as i have another flash class coming up where i could create the basic framework for the game and then complete the art into the summer. might be fun to help support another one of my favorite LPers!
Haha thanks so much all of youuu (i got a few anons like this so i’ll just blanket reply to all of them as to not spam all my new followers, welcome guys!). i know a lot of you emailed/tweeted him to facilitate him playing it and i’m so thankful to everyone for your support!
