It has been quite sometime since I returned to this blog of mine.
I have been very busy with my studies back then so I slowly neglected the blog.
Now that my national examinations are over, I'm not sure if I should go back to continue on this blog, or should I leave it as is.
The reasons for me to continue are pretty much as high as for me to leave.
Here are pretty much the reason why:
Why would I want to continue?
It has always been one of my interest to write. That's right, not blog, but write. But since I thought, hmm... maybe I should start a blog and start writing the crap out of everything. Hahaha, I've pretty much burned out of ideas. You can look at the burn out point for more information.
- My 2-3 years commitment made me unbearable to drop this blog
Imagine if you have worked very hard for something, like in this case, 2-3 years, can you let it go? No of course not! Or at least not for the majority of you and the same goes for me.
- As a part time job maybe...
This dream is probably not going to come true. But I did this blog in the first place so that I can gain some revenue for myself as well. But it didn't work out as well as I thought.
Why would I want to leave?- Burn Out
I have spent a lot time and apparently it's not converting very well for me. I have spent about 2 years of non-stop daily blogging and it's not turning out to what I expect it to be. Coming up with at least 1 post every single day back then. I'm pretty much burned out of post by this point.
- Spam... Spam... Spam...
As you've noticed I've disabled comments on this blog, simply because there is just WAYYY too many spam comments. The spam comments, the last time I check outnumber legit comments 8:1. Which pretty much shows that my blog is now a subject of spam.
While my national examinations might be over and currently waiting for my post to a higher level of education I am free. But after which my life will be very busy, filled with tons and tons of project works, or at least that's what my friend told me. So I'll have no time to do this blog.
With that all said, I would say that this might be my final post for this blog.
But before I end it, I would like to do one final advertising for something I've been working on for the past few years.
Black Galax: Revert.Link: http://rpgmaker.net/games/5874/
It's a game I'm making on RPG Maker VX Ace. Of course most of you who had heard of it might not like it because it is a 'simplistic engine' and whatnot. Yea, that might be the case, but if you did bother to read, I did mention that I like writing!
I really want to see my story being made into a game, thus I decided to use RPG Maker engine to make it. Don't underestimate me though, my mapping skills are pretty good!
If you do play Corpse Party, you should know that Corpse Party is actually made on RPG Maker 1995 version. Or maybe you saw Cry or Pewds play The Witch's House, or Ib or Mad Father or Misao, all are made in the older versions of RPG Maker. I myself have a Horror Game planned as well.
In my opinion, I think that there are many good undiscovered indie games out there that many had overlooked.
Not trying to flaunt or anything but my point here is that you shouldn't judge an engine by it's simplicity, but by it's capability. As a hobbyist myself, I think it's the perfect platform to integrate my story into a game.
But enough said about my game.
So I'm still thinking whether I should discontinue it? Or Continue it? I'm in a dilemma right now...
