I dunno anon, maybe you could try making a game yourself or supporting the devs you like, that usually brings jealous devfags out of the woodwork.
For real though, there was a blog for a game called Monotose that got shut down not too long ago without warning. The creator started getting asks about why the MC looks so dumb on the title screen and he gave up almost immediately lol.
This is kind of cool. Sometimes I fantasize about leaving the real world and dedicating myself to just creating my own world and becoming a seasoned yet slightly crazy developer. Realistically though I would probably just end up killing myself after too much of that, and at the very least my mental and physical health would degrade
Wince because it's mostly too late for me.
I am okay, though.

I still suspect the sender of that happy note was part of the troop.
Oh, I remember this one.
Don't worry, I already lost the count of the number of people who dropped their shit without even publishing a single demo.
at least you gave us something…
>Be a dev starting out like everyone else with a shitty game
>make it substantially better and tie it into my own fictional universe
>enjoy a little fame for a bit
>no one cares about me not long afterwards
>quietly continue making games in hopes of tasting that small notoriety again
This looks cute and I like the colors
, at least it's not the bottom of the "I won't even pretend I put effort into this" unfinished games barrel.>>10506>I mostly do kusoge for ubuu
Post it, that's my shit
On another note, I find "live" threads on Uboachan pretty cool when I find them
Person from >>10507
here! You guys are a lot nicer than I expected about this.. the people who say uboachan shits on devs is pretty wrong.>>10511
Thank you! I actually did put quite a bit of effort into my tiles since I wanted my game to look pretty.
I wanna do an actual game sometime soon and I have enough time to do it, but I don't know if I will due to who I am as a person. But I really want to! Only reason I had to drop the earlier project for good was because my laptop died and took my files with it.
Yeah Uboachan pokes fun at us "devfags" from time to time, but the general reception to native devs and people who actually take the time to come here is lukewarm to good. We like progress updates.
>>10511>Post it, that's my shit
They are already up, man, scattered around the boards.>>8993>>>/ot/9384
I don't really wanna dig around the archives for other crap.>>10512>You guys are a lot nicer than I expected about this.. the people who say uboachan shits on devs is pretty wrong.
Oh yeah, the "uboachan is so evil" thing again… people here speak their mind with honest words; this is a chan after all, so it's pretty common to be kinda "harsh" and arrogant, but actually it's more of a thing to act that doesn't necessarily implies you're being an actual cunt. People new to any chan sees all these sarcasm and irony posts as malicious, but they don't realize it's more of a common treat around here than the "so called bashing" thing that people want to make out of this place. If you actually read the posts, they make good points, but it is generally dismissed because "oh noes must be bash", and honestly, I can't count more than 2 threads where some games had extremely negative feedback. But then again, this is the INTERNET, every forum has trolls and drama.

It is so true it's hard to finish and follow through. I admire M-256 a lot and always have because they're always completing whatever games they release, I actually feel really guilty I can't seem to do the same. This stuff is a real commitment and I did not expect that when getting involved in this and I'm afraid I won't be able to keep up in the end.
Like it's gotten to the point that I feel like I'm just stringing people along and that sucks and I am so sorry. I want to do better but I'm not sure how to go about it.
yourself up over it. Like I said here >>10515
, a lot of us here totally get it. I'd like to get some work done on things too once summer starts. We could work on it (I mean time management and getting projects done and stuff) together. But don't feel guilty about a project, that'll probably just hurt motivation because you won't want to think about it

I took a year-long break and am trying to finish at least a prologue to the game but it still feels overwhelming.
