I don't program much at the moment. I'd like to change that.
I believe that one of the problems is my lack of experience. I just need to program more.
Through Minecraft, or more precisely its developer Markus Persson, I became aware of Game Jams, competitions/events in which developers try to create a game in very limited time. Appearently Markus has built games for Ludum Dare in 48h, and World of Goo started as one prototype amongst many, all developed in one week.
I like the idea and I think I'll try to create a game for the Experimental Gameplay Project in 7 days. The theme is drawing. I don't know what I'm going to do yet, but I'll think about it.
I'll have holidays soon, on Thursday, so I should have plenty of time. Oh, and there'll be Christmas, but you probably know that. And I still love the Steam Holiday Sale.
