Hey! Quick project update - after looking at the list of games I was intending to expand upon (Cliff Hanger, Mini Dungeon, and Rhythm Grocer), I realize that those projects already demonstrated the core concepts that I had intended. Most of the things I wanted to add to those games were polish or extra features... With the growing list of game ideas I'd like to try out, it makes more sense for me to move on and break new ground. The things lacking from those unfinished projects (sound, animations, etc.) are things I'll do my best to include in future projects, but part of maintaining my motivation to keep working is finding new game ideas.
Speaking of working, I'm going to try sticking to more consistent development habits. Since I'm a morning person, I think devoting the first hour or two of my day to programming will let me squeeze the most out of the limited time I have to code these days.
