Remember the time when you said that your game is “almost finished” and that “you just need to add one more thing”.
Well, I’ve noticed this to happen to my own game’s engine. I’m using this browser based system, and noticed that once again I need to add this “one more thing”. Okay, this feature I add is good thing to add. It will help making changes much, much easier – so in reality instead of spending several hours doing repetitive work, I create a system that let’s me edit crucial data online & realtime.
In this specific case (bit hard to explain), I am actually saving quite a bit of time – since I’m sure my game won’t be balanced. Cannot be. Thus, I need an easy way to change numbers and help in balancing.
This is acceptable, but it is also a reminder about “adding one more thing”.
There’s always one more thing to add.
When was the last time when you said that you “just need to add this one thing and it’s done” (and ended doing another, and another, and another, and another change…)?
