This game is way too big.

I mean, it's way too big.

I started this project 3 years ago, before I had any experience making games. I did the classic make-a-gigantic-game-for-your-first-game mistake that a lot of people do. Ya, it's embarrassing but at the same time who cares? I've since started a game company with a good friend of mine, & we've made small games on contract & for ourselves. We've learned a lot about how to make games properly, & one way to make a good game is to make a small game that is actually manageable.

Cloudface will be scaled back a lot. Like, it's going to be a really small game now. I'm sure some people will not like that, but oh well. We still need funding to make it happen, but having a more realistic budget to work with is an easier project to get funded than a very expensive one.

So, if anyone still cares, that's where the game is at right now & it's still nowhere near being done, but scaling the scope of the game back to something actually doable is going to help a lot.

good luck with that. I've only just scrapped my first game temporarily too (technical reasons and not knowing how to solve/frustration). with the same engine I restarted end of december and have come much further. the scope is a lot smaller, a lot less complexity. best decision ever. I might just go back to the old game when the new one is done, but for now I'm having a lot more fun.

Sorry to hear about this but good on you figuring out there were scope issues and adjusting.

Glad to hear you're making it happen on other fronts though!

Argh I'm sorry to hear that - good luck with the pilot and I hope to see a Cloudface game one day! That, or tune into the Cloudface cartoon on a Saturday morning Smiley

Oh I missed this post. Cloudface could've been a neat little platformer, and I'm sorry to hear it's cancelled. All the best with your future projects!
