In the beginning, I created ten project ideas.
And these were without form, and I was unsure where I was going. And my train of thought moved like a bug upon glue.
And I said, let there be an idea: and there was an idea.
And I saw the idea, that it was good: and I divided the idea from the confusion.
I’m not trying to say that the creation of my project was anything like God creating the Earth. I’m simply recollecting on the origins of my project and I seem to naturally disregard the problems I faced. Nothing about Propel has been what I expected and maybe that’s for the best. I’ve trained myself to work past struggles that I never anticipated.
My project could be seen as a ‘struggle because’, but I’d prefer to see it as a ‘success despite’. I have unfortunately failed to meet my personal goals, this would usually bring my confidence down. However, when I reflect upon all that I have done, this is a minor problem. In the end, my project will be primarily a concept. My card game, Actually… will be completely developed and playable. I will have two sets of cards, my instruction manual, and a plan for graphic design. This isn’t a lot of product but it was a lot of work. It will be playable and fulfill my major goal, to have a solid game concept.
Recently, we have put together a brief description of my project. Click the link to see a concise overview of what I’ve been doing.
The final presentations at Nelson McIntyre Collegiate are coming up and if you want to hear more about my process, project and the projects my classmates have done you should attend.
I may be signing off on my blog, but my project will live on. I have had so much fun working on this game that I can’t leave it at the door of Propel. I will be attempting to complete the base elements of my game so I can launch my own personal project marketing and selling the game throughout 2019.
Thank you for reading my updates, putting up with my subtle jokes, and my far out metaphors. I have enjoyed keeping you updated on my journey through Propel. Have a lovely break and a joyous holiday. I look forward to seeing some of you in the New Year!
