One game per week. Day 23

Hello everyone!

Making one game per week has teached me a lot.
The 3rd weeks game will not be released anywhere as it is an unplayabale mess.

I will keep this as brief as possible and shortly explain why this weeks game has failed:

1) I did not make a  prototype.
I just started working without testing the core mechanic. I thought that I would not need that, I was sure that it was great. I was wrong.

2) The core mechanic is not as fun as i though
This was only clear after I was too far in developement. Having to push on with developement when you know that your game is not much fun is something I do not want to have to do ever again.
 

3) I did not take care of myself
Like, not at all.
 

4) I did not document my developement process     
I had no documentation, no style sheet, no daily recapitulation. This made a lot of my work ineffective and useless as I was not taking care of the important parts of the game.

 

I have to apologize to @TrinaTan, @freakinbehemoth and @TheSharkBite. These awesome newgrounds members provided voice acting and music for a game that I fucked up.

I am sorry.

I hope to have finally learned my lesson this week and will only fail in different areas from now on.

Cheers,
Josh

EDIT:
I knew about all the things that I did wrong before doing them. I guess I had to learn the hard way. Next Mondays game will be made under consideration of all of them. It will also be about comics.

Oh... Sorry to hear about that... Anyhow... Do you need anything else? I'd be happy to help for another piece of yours! It's not just because I want to work, but I'm a personal fan. PM Me!

Don't stress about it! It's just a week, so if you learnt something and won't repeat the mistake in the future it's for the better.

Great post bro.

Keep on making stuff and stay positive.
Failing is learning in best form.

Road to greatness doesnt come easy so hard work pays in the end.
