Games are very technical and creative, so they get a lot of public opinion. From good games to bad games, why it’s the best game, why it’s the worst game of all time, and everything in between.
Now if you’re a game developer or a creative person in general. Whatever you do, you’ve probably heard the saying “don’t read the comments” at least once. Whatever you make, once posted online, people will tell you what they think about it without any filters. Well, because that’s the internet for you.
Not long ago, while scrolling through my Twitter timeline, I came across a post from a developer who, sadly, I don’t remember who it was. Comments people posted about their work. They can keep these comments in a folder and then look back at them for inspiration and motivation.
I thought this was a fantastic idea and I’ve been doing the same thing ever since. As creative individuals, we tend to focus on negative comments, and we remember best when there are mountains of good positive comments to see. So I read comments about the games I make and log feedback to improve them, but now I also take screenshots of positive comments about my work so I can revisit them when I need them. Motivation to continue the project.
Until next time!
