I have this really strange feeling now, since my first game had been released on Steam more than a month ago. Before the release, I have spent almost all my spare time on development, and now I really don’t know how should I continue. Of course if I encounter a bug in A Long Road Home, I fix it, and I’m working on some improvements now and then, but I’m still not decided about what should I do next.
My first thought was supporting the game via DLCs, but then it struck me that I’m not really sure if there is a demand for that right now. I mean, the game got moderate sales, which are OK for a first project I guess, but it is not a runaway success. Does this game warrant a DLC, does it worth the time and money? Or would it be more beneficial to start a new project, start developing my next game.
Because as soon as I finished developing A Long Road Home, I started to get all kind of ideas, which I could expand, and maybe make it a game. And that would be more exciting than just doing DLCs. That said, I still have a feeling that I should support my first game, not just abandon it after its release.
So here I am now, and I don’t know if I should start a brand new project, or stick to the current one and work some more on that. I guess we will know my decision soon enough, I can’t continue doing nothing forever.
