The path to Stompy
Five weeks ago I had never finished a game. I had been studying in my spare time for YEARS but never really felt prepared to start.
Then one day I just DID. I put down a landscape. Threw a flat panel down above the landscape and rode it around like a skateboard within a few hours. I thought to myself: "A few hours? I can finish this whole thing in a week!" So I decided to go for it.
It took me five weeks.
But now it's up! It's done!
And now I am attacking my main project with super confidence. Honestly just the confidence that I finished something. Even if it's this. :)
And EVERY step I took in this I saw improvements. Sometimes I did them, others I had to toss them so I could finish this thing.
At one point I experimented with a terrain style I LOVED. But I was just too far. I would have set myself backwards at least another week.
So it will go in my next project. It was that way with so many things.
This has been a lot of fun.
