Title: How was year 2017?
Post by: Krice on December 26, 2017, 09:52:42 PM
I think mine was a bit lame. I had big hopes to finish Teemu 1.3 before the end of year, but it didn't happen because I wanted to create more complex dungeon generation algorithms which I did and currently doing. I was also making some progress in Kaduria and Brick Atelier, but nothing too exciting. In "real life" I have had difficulties with many things, including not finding a job this year. I believe things are getting even worse, but somehow I don't panic about it. In a way I'm too busy with various stuff like trying to make some music etc.

I have mixed feelings. In real life - it wasn't bad year. Finally I got a grip and I took an action to change my crappy job and poor career prospects, by learning cnc. I hope it'll work somehow :D Speaking of roguelikes, not so good. Despite efforts, I didn't make anything productive for a long time. I can't focus; I'm worrying about non-perfect solutions instead of, well, sitting and writing code that gets job done.

I have learned to not worry too much about source code quality, because it's really not the point of game development. Keeping a healthy amount of code quality is ok, but trying to reach that "perfect" level is waste of time.

True. Looking for perfect solutions killed my productivity. And made hobby much more similar to work.

What is Brick Atelier? I haven't heard about that. Could you tell something specific about that project?

It's a tile editor developed for "fun" I guess. I have kept developing it because nothing exactly like it exists, but still it has missing features which makes it also a bit painful to use. But I'm working on it.

Personally had a relatively crappy year, lacking in health, money, creativity and discipline. On the RL side of things, I think LoSt saw a single release. But the next version should come within the winter months, with some nice additions. Well, well, hoping for a better 2018 for all :)

As always,

It was a pretty productive year --->   https://blog.slashie.net/2017/12/31/slashware-2017-rewind/

I also had a daughter, and lots of almost fun work bringing enough revenue to probably buy a house next year, so I'd say it was a pretty good year :)

As we say here in Finland you'll soon have a mortgage loan and a big Volvo for kids.

Congrats on the little one, Slash. It can be combined w/RL dev[1] ;) I have two in elementary school, but am more or less as much of a weirdo/bohemian as I was ten years ago.

As always,

[1] Even for an eternal hobbyist as myself. And if actually selling that stuff, you obviously just have to make it work :)

It sucks big time, I have noticed fraud in the company but I choose to keep quiet. It sucks that I am still stuck in this company and I have no chance of escaping hell.
