I Can't Continue - I'm Finished with this OneI'm exhausted. I've tried coffee, I've tried taking a walk, I've tried taking a nap. I'm just exhausted. Headache, lightheaded, aching arms. I'm done. I can't think clearly, I can't even force myself to work. My body hurts.
Here's what I accomplished:
- Made something like a game
- Will not have another "DNF" on my PyWeek record
- Have a complete game
- Work for an entire week on a single game
Still, I've learned some things. I've learned that art-heavy concepts aren't my strong point. I've learned that the "code painting" idea is something that I have over-though. I've learned that I can't force myself to work non-stop without hitting a wall. I've learned that a lot can go wrong in a week.
I've also learned to not waste time during a compo! I wasted so much time on days 4 and 5 that this was almost inevitable. That's embarrassing, and I won't do it again.
So... I'll see you folks in the ratings. Please be gentle, I know my game is incomplete and missing major features, but I tried. It does have the theme, though...
Peace, love, and refusing the Pyrrhic victory,
A "Pyrrhic victory" is when you succeed but lost so much that you might as well have failed.
If I were to continue, I wouldn't gain much in this length of time and I'd just be even more tired. Hence, it would have been a "Pyrrhic victory" for me.
