Backwards postmortem (miniLD 57)

Ok, this is going to be weird. Writing a post mortem before the game
is something I never attempted.

And yet, I’m pretty sure what is going to go well and go wrong with
my game.

First, I know I will pick up a game I will like, and this is going to
be very helpful. This way I’m going to be very excited about my game
and will be very excited to seee the finished result.

Second, I will overshoot my idea by a countrymile, making it
impossible to create in the time frame of the miniLD. For sure, it is
going to be something so huge and impossible to make and the final
result is going to look like an incomplete mess.

Third, I know that I will interrupt my first idea right in the middle
and I will starting to work on a new idea ex novo, because “it’s so
much better!”, just to finish with a game that is probably worse than
my first idea could have done because of the lack of time.

This is a complete postmortem, and is going to be very accurate when
I’m done with my game. How do I know? Because it looks exactly like
all of my 5 postmortems so far.

Best thing though is that it is going to be a very fun mini ludum dare.

I know because they always are.
