Kenon's quest to finish something for once! Part 1

Posted by Kenon on Aug. 10, 2012, 10:26 p.m.

Hey people! If you know who I am, this title comes as a shock. I've never finished anything in my life. Ever. I'm the king of delaying things indefinitely. Forever.

Well, I want this to be changed. After meeting Rawrspoon and him telling me I needed to finish something in my life, I went to thinking and decided that maybe my time on earth is really small. I don't have much longer to finish anything.

So I want to finish something. But I'm not sure what. So this is where this blog starts. My idea of wanting to finish a project, start to finish.

The first thing that comes to mind is PLatformed. Unfortunately, I'm not an idiot. That'll never be finished because of how massive it is in my mind. It'd be too much of a project for me at this stage. I'll have to have more experience in finishing things before I jump to something that size. I want something smaller, but not too small. I want it to feel like an accomplishment when I finish it. And I want it to be a game.

A long time ago I made a minigame called Zombeez. I'm thinking of remaking that game on a much larger scale. The central core idea of an arcade-style game of killing lots of zombies using godlike abilities. This time I won't have it be mouse-only.

I think that's the route I'm going for. Zombeez 2. Arcade style infinite wave defense. Maybe not infinite with a storyline mode thing to it. I wouldn't mind creating an over the top storyline, similar to the storyline of Plants vs Zombies. The first was pretty bad.

Or maybe I should just wait until Scary Four Digits 2? Zombeez 2 would be a good game to make for that if that's the next one.

Until later!

When the fuck did you meet rawrspoon, and where's the obligatory thumbs up picture of you two?

I somehow had a wild guess that you would not be talking about completing PLatformed. =3

Me and Rawrspoon met at quakecon. I'm certain he has a pic of us somewhere.

Yeah there's no way in hell that I can complete PLatformed. I'd have to have the ability to make games like YoMamasMomma or Mega or Ultimortal if I wanted to complete it.

by then you may want to make something new entirely. but yeah arcade games are a great place to start, i'd love to see what you come up with. especially regarding storylines :P

You shouldn't completely drop PLatformed though.

Also, you did finish making the best faction in Sapphire Tears.

I'm not dropping PLatformed. I can't. It always comes back when I try to get rid of it!

So why exactly is the L capitalized in PLatformed? I've always wondered that.

It's a typo which is impossible to not make.

you are not alone… though i have finished things, i haven't really completed any full-length projects like i want to and i end up dropping 75% of my projects.
