I have to admit. I’ve started tons of blogs in the past but none really lasted long except for NoCommand. Lack of motivation and the process of coming out with the ‘Perfect’ blog post are the two main factors as to why most of them never pulled through. Heck, my last post on this site was over 6 months ago. That goes to show how ‘committed’ I was in keeping things alive.
Then a couple of days ago, I came across a blog post from Dale Rodgers titled “Bloggers, You Don’t Need To Get It Right, You Just Need To Get It Going..”. I will put a link at the end but long story short, reading what Rodgers wrote made me realised that I need to stop thinking too much and just get on putting contents on this site. It doesn’t have to be perfect nor does it have to be 10 pages long. The key point is to be consistent. And that is the first thing I’m going to change, my own attitude.
The next thing I’ve added is webcomics. I will be putting in some effort in making webcomics related to games and indie game developments (base on my own experiences). Yes, I do realise that there are plenty of game related webcomics on the internet but this is more for my own personal gain which is to improve my drawing skills.
Back in May 2015 I made a post about Project Wings and pre-maturely declared that the game will be out by June of the same year. At the time, I was pretty satisfied with what I have done. However as development progresses on, I realised that the game isn’t ‘fun’. It was just a simple endless top-down shooter with enemy planes coming in from the top or from the sides. There was no variation to the enemies movements, no cool boss fights, no interesting enemy projectiles. Stale would be the best word to describe it.
Since then, a lot of has changed on Project Wings. Codes have been optimized, there are more enemy variations, and I have added boss fights. Unfortunately due to time constraints there will only be one stage at the time of release. I will talk about it on a later post.
Well I guess that’s about it for now. As promised, below is the link for the blog post I mentioned earlier. Bloggers who are just starting out, you should definitely give it a read.
