So, after a little more design work, my idea is slowly coming together. Hopefully in the next few weeks, I can have a proper concept together that I can then leave for a few weeks. During this time, I will either focus on work stuff or work on another game idea. The reason being is that I want to be able to come back to this idea and realise that it’s actually a good idea rather than the “it’s the greatest idea ever” mentality that everyone has whenever they come up with an idea for anything.
I’ve started putting together a Trello board for keeping track of everything (thank god there is a mobile app) as well as some reference images from various different games and movies. I do have a few novels on my TODO list as well because I honestly haven’t read a novel in a number of years (visual novels don’t count). Probably the last Harry Potter novel was the last one I read and that was a long time ago.
Hopefully all of this sparks my imagination something shocking because I really want a good idea to potentially become great but if I come back to it after leaving it and it’s bad, at least I will have dodged a bullet.
