Seriously. I can only take so much.
Now the save files go bad when the game crashes. I test this game for weeks and months and it’s always OK, and now it starts doing this. Now. Now that I want to release it.
My every attempt to finish this game has resulted in problems popping up where before everything was fine. Even when I change nothing about how something works, it suddenly starts doing something it shouldn’t.
I’m tired of this. I’m a writer, not a programmer, and I’ve been struggling with code for weeks now, day after fucking day.
So I give up. There, the universe wins. No more Phenomenon 32, just a broken semi-game for people to laugh at, or maybe feel pity for. And no more games from me. I’m tried of fighting to get an idea out of my head and having to reinvent the wheel every five minutes to do it.
I tried. I tried very hard. I gave up pretty much everything else to make this game. But it can’t be done. It just can’t be done. I failed. Life wins, I lose.
If you’re curious about what the game would’ve been like, you can still download the version from the previous post.
