Well, our little natural disaster has ended. I spent a few good hours clearing branches from the yard that had collapsed due to ice accumulation. There's still a tree leaning on my barn that I need to take care of too.
I'm considering launching a kickstarter for this project. Natural disaster aside, I haven't been able to work a full day on the project since I first thought it up, mostly because I need to work and pay bills. Theoretically writing the code out for the game shouldn't take too long because I'm not doing anything terribly new or difficult, but getting the time to do it has proved a lot harder than I expected. As of right now I have less than a week's worth of work done over the course of nearly three months.
Now, normally this would be due to laziness or procrastination or lack of motivation, but I have managed to be productive throughout this time, and I really want to make this game, but I just haven't had the time to focus. There've also been a few setbacks that have made some of the work I've done obsolete, and I think a lot of those setbacks are also due to doing work very sporadically without time to really plan and think things through as I do them. (e.g. making art in an inconsistent style, making xml files in a difficult-to-parse method, etc.)
Summary: I want to make the game! Oh look, no time to do it lol.
Put it on kickstarter!!
I will definitely donate to it
