Does anyone else do what I like to call Project Hopping?
This is when you get bored of one project, or otherwise move onto a different one.
I know this is kind of ‘bad’, because you should focus on seeing a project through to completion which I find challenging, but I often just come up with new ideas I’d rather make, so I work on those for a while, and then a new idea comes up again.
It’s not all bad… It lets me learn lots of different things. But on the other hand, if all that effort went into seeing my best idea through to completion, I might have a good game close to completion. Now, the farthest I’d say I am is a generous 20% into any particular project (for my personal projects anyway, I have completed projects for others without issue, so it’s not that I CAN’T stick with one, it’s just that I don’t… unless I’m doing it for someone). Generally I get all the functionality in place but lose interest around actually adding content to my game.
What are your experiences with this? Has anyone conquered it, or does anyone have any advice? Or, since I’m mostly just a hobbyist anyway, is it not all that big of a deal as long as I’m having fun?
