Many game developers struggles with the continuous pull towards creating new more exciting projects, instead of finishing the one they are already working on. This is known as the “Shiny Object Syndrome” (Source) and it’s very common among game developers, and I have found that I’m no exception! I tend to love starting new projects, and have a hard time pulling a project through to the end, and finishing it.. I’m kind of aware of this problem, but it’s really hard to resist! But this time it’s different I keep telling myself! This time I’ve actually returned to a game I’ve worked on before.. Voila, battlemaze or codename bttlmz returns! A game I started working on after I released my last finished game.. This time maybe I’ll be able to finish it? Only time will tell..
I’ve started focusing all my development energy on a game project named “Wacky Waves”. It’s going to be a fast paced action boating game with battles between players and the environment. I’ve put up a site www.wackywaves.com that will have some info on the game, and a twitter account @wackywavesgame that I’m sharing my progress on! I’ll be sharing my bigger progress posts on this blog mainly, to keep things in one place! Hopefully I’ll be able to share more regularly than I’ve been able to before! Here’s some very early screens from the game I’m working on!
