I have been working on this game for a couple of months by now and I can officially say that I am in the middle of development. That is to say that I have just as far to go, as I have already gone.
To quote the The Rime of the Ancient Mariner:
Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.
at this point in development, I absolutely cannot tell whether what I have made has any merit what so ever. Some days I think this might be the best game that has ever been made, other days I think that this game will be so bad that I might never recover from the outfall of releasing this piece of shit.
The sad truth is that there is simply no way of knowing what the quality of this thing is until I have finished the game completely and that will be a couple of months still.
So until then all I can do is live in the pit of uncertainty, trying my hardest to make something I can be proud of and feeling as though I am failing all of the time.
