For this week’s Thousander Club update:
Game Hours: 10.5 / 1000
Game Ideas: 58 / 1000
Since I technically started tracking the last week of January, I’ve decided to readjust the total numbers I should keep as weekly targets. Today I should have 63 to keep on track for 1,000 hours by the end of next January. Otherwise, if I kept the old numbers, I would constantly feel bad for not catching up with almost a month of inactivity.
I’m hitting my goals for game ideas, which are fairly easy to come up with each day. I could think of three to 10 ideas in a few moments.
On the other hand, game development takes time. I can’t immediately get one, two, or three hours of game development. While I can’t always dedicate hours of development each afternoon, I think I might need to come up with a simple list of 5, 10, or 15 minute game development activities. I managed to get 30 minutes of programming before going to my day job this past week because I was finishing up some code I wrote to experiment with TinyXML. I think if I can take advantage of more “weird” windows of time, I should be able to make greater progress than if I expected to work during scheduled sessions.
