I’m very, very lost with Lone Survivor right now. The stuff I’ve been adding has just made the game far more complicated, not necessarily better as far as I can tell. I seem to be heading down a path where there’s almost too much content for one person to create.
I’m not actually sure I can finish it at all at this point, but maybe with some space between me and it, I can figure it out. Maybe not, and if so, that’s just how it was meant to be.
In the meantime I will be experimenting with a number of small things, nothing in particular. I may have to get a job too, as I can’t support this kind of procrastination financially! I was giving some proper thought to returning to the ‘big game’ industry, but then I realised I should probably put some distance between myself and games for a while. I might try and get a really normal job, one that’s not creative for a change, just to give me some breathing space to think about what I really want to do, indie-games-wise, and life-wise.
Now my plans have changed a lot in the past few years, even from month to month, so it’s hard for me to predict if this hiatus will be short, long or even permanent. I just wanted to let you guys know, and to say thankyou to you all for all the support for this game and others I’ve made.
I’ll leave you with a final screenshot of the game, a new room I added last week:
So for now at least, it’s goodbye from me, and goodbye from You!
