Welcome to March, everyone. With the new month comes new weather, and ample amounts of free time to work hard at Scrap Metal. Of course, I am joking. However, neither the weather or the lack of free-time is enough to stop me working away in the background. Here’s what I’ve been working on this week…
This week, work has been primarily me trying to stick to the arranged schedule – I think I’ve done pretty well, truth be told. I’ve been working at creating a full table of statistics, which is coming along nicely. As I am posting my current designs at Scrap Metal, I don’t feel like I have to get it all done at once, which is nice. It gives a calm feeling towards the whole project, and a strange time frame which is close and yet as much time as I could want.
That’s the power of working a one-man project.
However, as great as it is, it does make doing things a little more awkward. Finding contacts for pricing and places, for example, is a little difficult. Thanks to some friends I have made at The Mature Gamer Podcast forums, I’m actually being pointed in the right direction for a number of things.
One of my chief concerns at the moment is whether the whole thing is feasible. It takes a lot of money to do what I want to do, and I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. It’s why I need to find these prices and question everything.
My end goal is to have something that everyone can enjoy. I want this game to be played, and there is no reason why it shouldn’t be. It is a good idea, stretching out into unusual territories, and I want it to bring together gamers today like so many games have done before it.
Tall order, yes.
Achievable? We’ll have to wait and see.
