Too Many Ideas

On the way to work today I was thinking about a failed concept from two years ago. For some reason this sparked an idea for a game with a similar theme but totally different mechanics and goals.

This new idea has potential and since it’s fresh my mind I’m driven to work on it. The problem is it will be taking time away from a big project H.M.S. Victory; I should be trying to get it ready for Origins. There is plenty of fine-tuning to do before I show it to publishers.

With Origins 7 weeks off I need to stay focused and get it done. The other can wait until after the show.

Ideas that are cool and really tempting to work really can be a curse when other work is waiting to be done (oftentimes the last really cool idea you had that had to be worked on right away).

Ugh. I definitely feel like it's a curse some at times!

Will really be good when my time frees up to just focus on one or two games.

In the past it would not have

In the past it would not have been such an issue. I could work my day job come home and work all evening. These days I’m not so motivated. A couple of hours an evening a couple of days a week is about all the effort I feel like putting in even with a deadline.
