A lot of good tips very well explained.…
Robotland 0.998 is available for free!

Screenshot103 by Ricardo73

This weekend I took my old Game Maker 8.1 to improve my game Robotland. After listening many critics about how difficult it is, I decided to include an "Easy" difficulty, with more medkits, less enemies, etc. I will be happy if someone is able to complete the game now!

Moreover both languages English and Spanish are now included in the same build.

Any constructive criticism is welcome.…

My isometric view of Terraria has received more than 1.700 likes in Steam so far. Not bad...

I saw your Half-Life pixel art on steam and I loved it so much. I had to check out your profile and it was the best decision I ever made! Love your stuff, keep it up!

Hey Ricardo

I drew comics and did some programming back in the day then had to "grow up" and go to college and put all that stuff behind me. Literally from 19 to 33 I worked, came home, ran errands, slept, rinse and repeat... 

I'm lazy and apathetic also lol! We could be friends! hehe I am a textbook example of a bad perfectionist, I never start anything and when I do it's because the planets aligned.. even knowing acknowledging this I still can't get past the mental block. 

Anyways, lately I've gotten really interested in being creative again, and reading your profile and seeing the great quality of your pixel art is truly motivating. 

PS Don't worry about fitting in!

Thanks for your message.

I know I am not alone, procrastination is the fifth horseman of the apocalypse. As you said, there is a mental block, the first step is always the harder one. Sometimes, thinking about doing something creative, I feel so stressed and overwhelmed that I have to change my mind and do something else instead...

It is true that I did some pixel art and some other stuff, but this is just the 1% of what I could do if I can actually break that mental block...

Well, there is no point on whining and that is not my intention. I just whant to thank you for the message. I think I am going to draw something right now, and I invite you to do the same.
