Hello, I want to talk with the most serious thing you must be concerned, I am leaving Newgrounds and I want to stop working on "Madness: Sierra Nevada" due some reasons I will list below. The project wasn't bringing me the inner harmony how it is supposed to be and the feeling like I'm in chains until I'll suffer enough and finish the project I don't like was bothering me way too frequently. However, there are main reasons why I stopped working on the project
The lack of assistance - Yes, I was getting helped I'm not going to lie. I had REAL friends who were actually helping me in code, soundtrack and the animation which I'm very thankful to them. But there were many people not helping me but they asked me for. I really required help like in level design but they not only were doing nothing, they weren't telling me why and it caused many problems. I was working mostly alone on the project and I could not split the time on making levels, coding, animating and drawing. I simply could not that's why I was looking for assistance.
It wastes too much time - Making games is not easy job and I perfectly know, 1 year of development is not a short lifespan of my project which I'm so proud. However, I don't think that spending hours, nights of coding is a good idea, of course I could not do that but anyway I was always busy making the game so I could not speak with my friends and it caused me many personal problems.
The loss of interest - Yes, this is the biggest problem each creator can stuck, but I'm not interested in Madness anymore including the game so lately I'm not getting satisfied when I'm making the game.
I am tired of game dev - I don't want to make games yet and I'm interested in making music rather than developing computer games.
Newgrounds - I'm getting angry when in featuring arts I only see animu gurls with big boobs in erotic pose using tags like "oppai","big-tiddies","ass", etc. and then I read comments there like "OmG sO tHiCc 5 sTaRs". Also it is funny when the game with shitty gameplay but with the woman with big ass in the thumbnail becomes a game of year (Yes, Labyrneath, I'm talking about you)
The project is unoriginal - The game is just Madness-themed copy of Hotline Miami and I could do something more original but the lack of imagine didn't allow me to do this.
I think I'm done, well I'm sorry if I disappointed you but this is my project and I do whatever I want and I want to go my own path of my life. If you still have questions you may post them in comments, I'll try to answer them as possible as I can.
