State of my Brain

State of my Brain
Progress on things has been pretty weird lately. I've been all over the place with what I've been working on and how I've been spending my time. I'm struggling to find things to talk about on the ole blog so I figured I'd write up just a bunch of thoughts and feelings that are bouncing around my noggin.

Super Sky Sisters
I've been feeling like this game is "almost done" for the past year. It's always felt that I'm one bullet point away from finishing it, but each bullet point reveals two or three more that I then have to work on. It just doesn't seem like the game has enough stuff for it to be called "finished." That and I'm also struggling with a lot of anxiety about the game.

Honestly what I really want to do is just release it on itch.io and call it a day, but I feel like I'm missing possible opportunities to do way more with it. Steam, Humble, maybe actually trying to get any sort of press for it... but all of these things make me feel incredibly anxious. I would be perfectly happy just quietly releasing it on itch, but am I just screwing myself over by doing that? I mean I do have to make money on my work otherwise it becomes pretty difficult to eat, but right now the thought of putting Sky Sisters in front of a potentially huge audience makes me feel pretty uneasy and I'm not sure exactly why.

These feelings of weird social anxiety that somehow carries over to my work is probably the biggest reason I haven't hurried up and finished it. My anxiety and "introvertedness" just gets stronger and stronger all the time and I'm not sure how to fight it! Whoops this part isn't exactly about Sky Sisters anymore.

Over the past week or so I sat down with my twitch stream and worked on a new background for Super Sky Sisters. Check it out!

One of the most common pieces of feedback I was getting is that the sky was not really as cool as everything else in the game, and over time I agreed more and more with that feedback so I finally ripped it out and did an all new one. I think I liked the look of the old one still, but it wasn't coming across as that great, so out it goes.

The old sky looked like this:

Not too bad, but I think this is definitely an improvement. There's a lot more character and life in this new sky!

Sorry for the all the dust around here lately! I've been caught up in a bunch of stuff this month, and I've started doing some cool game development streams on Twitch!

You can follow me on Twitch right here! Right now my schedule is every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday starting at noon pacific time. So far it's been a lot of fun and I've been streaming a lot of Super Sky Sisters stuff! With the help of the stream chat it's been pretty productive -- actually very surprisingly productive.

So I got a little bit swept up in getting my stream all put together so I forgot to write blog posts about my progress lately, but I'll be posting again this week with what's been going on with Sky Sisters. (You'll notice that I pivoted back to that from the dice rpg, but the dice RPG is still living on, I just am using streaming as a way to get back in the saddle of Sky Sisters so I can finally finish this dang game.)
