Hi all,

Thank you to everyone who played and rated Mass-X. You’ve humbled me. I had one mission this time which was to make a game that was fun. My previous highest score for fun was 468th, which is basically ‘not very fun at all’ so 76th is definitely a step in the right direction.

But.. oh my word these are by far the best results I’ve ever had. Audio, Mood, Fun and Overall all in the top 100. I’m blown away.

The biggest surprise though, the one that I can’t quite get my head around, is coming 12th for graphics. I need to get a lot better at my pixel art, especially animation and was pretty gutted about only getting to spend a few hours doing the art. I HAD SUCH PLANS! Still, you didn’t punish me too harshly, so thank you.

Next time I want to beat that #76th for Fun score. That’s my goal. I think I’ve got the graphics and audio thing sorted, so time to focus on the one skill that really matters: Raw Game Design. Much easier to try to improve a smidge on one aspect of my game dev career than try to become ULTRA AWESOME GAME DEV overnight. Maybe I’ll succeed next time. Maybe it’ll take another four or five attempts. Maybe I’ll never achieve it but I’m never going to give up.

And that’s because of this community. You are the best.

Thank you again for all your votes and kind words and I’ll see you all again next time! 😀
