The problem with releasing a map, is that it’s generally expected you work on another one right away. I only released BOB (Bridge Out Battle) 2 weeks ago and already people are wanting the next thing. But what do I tackle? I have done nearly all genres of maps now… and to make matters worse. I have no idea what direction I want to go next. I’m thinking about doing another quickly with a second Eronev Chronicle map. Those are fun and easy to do, plus they give me a chance to flex my diversity muscle another time and try experimental things I wouldn’t normally try on a full release.
Right now I have 6 maps in my saves folder that I’ve started… some significantly older and in a worse state than others. One of them I haven’t touched since prototyping last October (yeah, 2012). I suppose it’s a matter of picking up which one will keep me interested until completion.
This new website has given me an outlet to organize and share my complete map works with everyone which is awesome. But despite my best efforts, map making continues to be under the hobby category since the revenues I get from both my youtube and this website are barely enough to keep the website running. Which of course means map making will come second fiddle to my real job. So all you guys and girls wanting new maps now, and wondering why I haven’t uploaded a new map in over 2 weeks(!) remember that I’m only doing these in my spare time.
That said, BOB is picking up steam thanks to Xisuma showcasing a game on his channel which you can see above. My POV of the same game is on my channel, I get a great view of the final battle. As well as another match I found online which proved to be quite entertaining.
Anyway… it’s back to the drawing board. Hopefully I can get something out before Animal Crossing comes out… it is likely to consume me.
