    Helpless artist/coder/musician?

    Post by SoulRed12 on 5/10/2009, 8:50 pm

    Are you a one-man gaming factory? I'm just curious how many people out there work independently but struggle with one or more aspect of game design. Like for me, I'm a capable programmer and good musician, but a crappy artist.

    Usually, I find (or found, as it may be), that I can think of a great idea for a game but whenever my ideas hit production they always fell apart when I realized I can't make the graphics for it or when I realize the graphics will take to long. Really disappointing Sad That's even part of the reason why I quit game making altogether.

    So what is your Achilles heal when it comes to game making?

    Graphics and Music.

    I can program and make sounds nicely. But when it comes to graphics I get discouraged and I hate looking for music online. I'd rather have someone make the music for me. And what I wouldn't do for an artist!

    Graphics and Motivation

    Graphics and stuff aren't really my thing. I can make great music either on the computer, or on my keyboard. And I'm a pretty good programmer.

    Motivation is a problem though. Can't seem to stay with whatever I'm working on. Sometimes caused by losing my work due to a malicious program I made Very Happy

    The game sells for $20 and has probably made millions by now. Even I have a copy Razz (but i got it on sale so it was worth it)
