    There’s a lot of random factors involved, but this far in the competition, this is all I can afford in terms of depth.

    The sweet smell of progress!

    It’s playable! Not good, but playable nonetheless.

    You guys.

    I decided to carry on and submit for the jam, this really is one of the best communities around.

    Isn’t it my tradition to make this post every comp?

    I’m out.

    I picked an idea I know I can do,  and I’m considering adopting this as a full time project, but developing a compo version from where I am right now to the end of the competition, it just doesn’t sound like a fun workload to me. I could continue and probably have a game by the end off all this, but I’d be miserable in doing so.

    All the boring technicals.

    Not sure if this is allowed, but my Look What I Made Weekend Game + Timelapse

    Since a lot of people might not know, Look What I Made Weekend is similar to ludum dare except you can make whatever, not just a game. It’s hosted by one of the more popular game development streamers dvColgan. As a sort of warm up for Ludum Dare 30, since I’ve dropped out of two of them and completed only one,  I decided to compete in it and see a project through from start to finish. Though my result wasn’t pretty, I’m currently working on a post compo version of this with better graphics, better gameplay, and a ton more content. This is officially my second game in the history of ever that’s actually playable, and with this I’m confident looking to the future.

    I recovered from my mental breakdown!

    My last post on this site, and really any recent post from me is grim. To summarize them all, I’m a quitter. Not just in the competition, but for games in general. My only completed ludum dare and my only completed game both came out of ludum dare 25(Two whole years since I saw a project through! )

    I’ve competed in 4 ludum dare tournaments, counting last one, and dropped out of all but 25. Last time when I dropped out I had a bit of a mental fit and publicly claimed I was unfit for game design. I was more than ready to stick by that, too.

    It was 4 whole months before I’d ever touch a line of code again. Starting on July first to present, I’ve been developing a game. Sure 9 days isn’t much to you industry savi people,  but that’s probably the longest I’ve ever worked on a game, and I’m proud of what little I have accomplished.

    I think it’s safe to say that those 3 years of pumping out incomplete games and cancelling them developed a pattern in me to be a quiter.  As one gets use to this same demoralizing routine, they soon wish to value death more than life  and are simply unable to complete anything. I feel the only reason I even finished 25 was because I developed the majority of it in a public setting and felt the pressure.

    Well, I say no more to any of that. After a good long break and a good comeback, I think I might finally be ready to complete a ludum dare, not out of pressure, but out of my own desire to create something.

    Here’s to hopefully completing ludum dare 30, and the game I’ve been developing!

    So I suppose I have no option but to drop out.

    This is honestly one of the worst posts I’ve ever had to type out.

    I have no option but to drop out. There’s no foreseeable solution to my problem, I have so little time to finish this game when even the very base code isn’t laid out, I failed. It’s also impossible to start on a new idea and have it done in time for the compo. This will likely be my last ludum dare, as it’s evident for my now 4 times attempted, and only one time suceeding, that game design isn’t cut out for me.

    I’m not going to be able to get the comp done.

    I slacked off far too much yesterday, went to bed early, woke up late, AND had to reprogram my computer. This really isn’t looking too good.

    Boy do I have a lot of work to do.
