Programming games with frenzied abandon!

This resonates. I recommend bringing this attitude to your game development, especially if it is a side project and *especially* if you're a solo dev. As long as you stick with it, it'll get done. But you won't stick with it if you burn yourself out.
Whether it's making art, exercise, developing a skill, or learning a new subject, consistency matters so much more than intensity. It's so much better to show up and do a shitty little 20 minutes of effort regularly, yet people always *think* they need to work in intense binges

Added a trail to the portable turret's lasers, as suggested by @crypto_console. I'm digging it a lot more. Still needs some tweaking though. I did try other colors, but yellow seems best. #gamedev #indiedev #indiegamedev #madewithunity #solodev #indiegame

Implementing a remote turret the player can call to their location. Just added the attack system, accuracy needs tweaking. Not quite happy with the laser color, any suggestions? #gamedev #indiedev #indiegamedev #madewithunity #solodev #indiegame

How do you make a toast? By combining fire and bread, of course! What do you think of the #FunForbidden object crafting approach? Add the game to your wishlist if you're interested bit.ly/3jzsz64 #indiegamedev #indiegame #gamedev #unity #indiedev #indiegames #game #VR

Apart from bug causing spontaneous combustion of building's corners, this is going somewhere #Precursor #gamedev #indiedev #pixelart #monogame

I'm implementing a turret system the player can request to come to their location, but I need your opinion. Which ship type do you prefer? A. The ones on the left, or B. The ones on the right? #gamedev #indiedev #indiegamedev #indiegames #indiegame #solodev

Do you ever end up in a situation where your battle turns into a competition between your frogs and the enemy's frog ghosts? #gamedev #heroshour #indiedev
