Looking back on this year it's been a good year and a bad year at the same time. If I look at it in a optimistic way, I have learned a new program - Unity. I have learned a new language - C# and I have released my first ever 2 games onto Mobile with Unity. This is good, I layed the foundations for learning new game development. If I was to look back in an pessimist way though I would think 2 games is not very much. I wasted too much time and could have completed more.
It's hard to decide which way to look at it. Doubts will always creep in your mind when you are any form of artist. Should I have done more? Was what I made good enough?
Either way I'm happy to have laid the foundations for 2019, games will be made quicker now I have more of a grasp on the program and language, since I used to previously work in Flash and use AS3.
I've also been held back by a few personal health problems and financial problems.
Overall I'm glad and proud to have gotten back into game development after a long break for a while. I battled some personal stuff I talked about in previous posts, and now that I'm back to normal and focusing on game development again I have a lot of ideas that will be coming to mobile for 2019.
Happy New Year from Eggys Games.
Have a merry christmas! from Eggy :) Hope you get lots of egg presents! Like an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg, inside an egg.
So as you may have saw my previous post below about Draw-Play being copied and they put ads in it to make money in the ripoff version, I'm happy to say that after contacting the ad websites about it they have removed the ripoff version from there ad network! It's good to see website owners taking action on behalf of developers and earns me a lot of respect for that website.
This is a good lesson for other developers if you see you work as been cloned and ripped off to always try your best to get in contact with ad companies and websites hosting the game to make sure they remove it.
So over the years it's been pretty common for people to blatantly ripoff my ideas. Some people say it's a form of flattery, which is fair enough it kind of is. I do take it that way. I'm surprised my games are still being copied 10 years later. However the most recent copy of my game is Draw-Play. They took it a little too far in how direct the copy is.
Here is my game Draw-Play below.
Now here below is the ripoff version
Now look, I don't mind people being inspired by my work. I in fact encourage it, inspiration though is different to blatant copying. If you're going to take inspiration from my game...can you at least CHANGE THE NAME? OR THE CHARACTER? OR EVEN GOD FORBID THE LEVELS?!?!
I'm laughing pretty hard at the badly drawn version of the Draw-Play character though.
Also if you want to make a parody/remake of my game thats cool just please do not try copy the name, or at least put credit to me somewhere.
I mean come on, they didn't even try make it any different, it's almost an exact clone. Now normally again I'd let it slide except the fact he put ads in it, and is making money off it. This annoys me, because I deserve any ad revenue made from the game.
I will be contacting any websites hosting it however to take it down because as usual with copy games they usually don't have any credits to them because the author doesn't want to be known as a thief.
But alas it's the internet and everything gets stolen, so that's part of life and is actually the reason my games spread so far, but I only encourage stealing as long as my game remains intact with my logos and ads, but hey if you're gonna copy my idea, I dont mind, but at least make it original? just change the graphics AT LEAST. and design your own levels for gods sake. Put in any effort what so ever, and I would be proud to see a game that was inspired by mine. Just don't copy every part about it and try take my ad revenue. Geez.
