What Has Become of Puzzlem00n?

Good question, title. Well, here are my goals so far as to what I’m going to do next.


This is basically all I’ve been doing lately around here. So far I’m at 47. My goal is to reach 100 so I can get a gold medal of coolness. I would be a lot farther along, but I started rating a bit late, and I don’t always have time, blah blah blah, excuses excuses, ect. So yeah, maybe I’ll make another post of my favorites later on.


I see a lot of people around continuing development on their games to turn them into a full release. I have to say that my game, Empty, will not have it’s development continued directly. It’s far to glitchy to build upon, it’s sort of annoying to play, and I don’t think I can do much more to it’s current engine to make a better game. What may occur in the future is that the game’s core mechanic ideas will be taken, balanced out into a more full game design, and then completely rebuilt from the ground up. I am really much moreĀ attachedĀ to the idea of the game then the game itself, so I feel this is the next logical step.


To be honest, I feel that I can barely say I have a career at all. I know this sounds like I’m being down on myself, but trust me, I’m not. Empty, to me, does not feel enough like a game to me for me to call myself a game developer. If I wanted to, I could probably call myself one and get away with it, but I don’t want to lie to myself. There’s nothing anyone can say to change my mind on this. I will not be a developer until I feel I can truly call myself one. And when will that be? When I make a game that feels like me.


I’m definitely going to start a blog up soon to post my games on and just write (I’m sort of into writing). I’m also going to do the next MiniLD, and all the ones after if I can. So0n, hopefully I’ll have a game that I can be proud of.

I suppose that sums everything up. Well, back to rating!
