I’m almost there. I just need to write the editor, and then I can create the actual game.
Yet every single part of my programming soul wants to rip out the code and rewrite everything. Nothing really fits together, nothing is documented, very little is commented and I feel like I have to use every trick and hack in the book to get the editor become compatible with the “engine”. And on top of that, I’ve even forgotten what kind of game I wanted to create in the first place.
I’ll have to sleep on this, but I think I’ll have to go far back to the drawing board. Think about what I really want to create, set up a real and proper design document, and follow a better software design process than “Code and fix”.
