Don’t get me wrong – I really like game concept (rendering) and all its possibilities
But technically speaking its not my game its Java port of opensource game,
even if from original code is left less then 5%
and other 95% totally rewrite on new manner
Its not making this game totally mine.
So I am not sure about breaking Status-Quo: constantly updating it , adding new features
and even traverse existing game mechanics (concepts) / game mood / basic ideas.
From small changes I can add multiple sequence Flag points
– or even add racing maybe even multiplayer.
From big changes maybe add subtractive geometry and make sometimes similar to worms 3d
But once again - its not my game
(maybe if original author want cooperate we can make something…)
And more importantly – engine changes: not for 1-2 days, its take much longer time…
Its not even about money
– its about for who we make games – I don’t see interested audience in it
And games must be for someone, not random: “look what I can do” (or even worst: “make as much money as possible”)
Here very interesting videos about overall game concepts and industry
And take a look how different they are on almost similar games
do you see many examples how game creators continue to create games(update same game) after 10-20 years in industry?
Some of them make money, some of them none
– but many of them disappear – after couple of years
Someone can argue that if couple of projects is failed and they run out of money they leave industry,
But maybe problem not in fails – what if problem was in there success – what if they success was random – or some magic happen – or it was hard work of other people, and not of them itself
offtop Some big speculation CAUTION:
Also way happen to internet nowadays
I don’t want to disappoint no one but here funny stats
Here what show forum (Most Online Today: 363)
And for 4 days 12 people click a link to take a look the game on itch (not download - 12 views)
Like what?) Who other 300, are they bots?
And that on basic forum, what about other places, where views directly affect income
Is they also have ~90% fake views? Or even more because its may directly generate income…
(and yes to hiding themselves they may watch random video on youtube, and other ~9.9%
are 8-14 kids? who may watch videos all day long and showing them ads is wasted time and money)
Now take a deep breath if its touched you in some way
Relax and be positive its not so bad as it looks – there are millions real people out there who more important and grateful then view counter on you screen
This real people will help you and will support you – make games for them not for Rates or imaginary piles of money
Its all about the sharing and not taking away something from someone!!!
