Nice questions. That's a good oppurtinity to answer many things.
Will this remain active?
It will remain active unless I say so. Nothing is set in stone.
Can you put in the time to develop a full-fledged video game, even if it's just an indie/fan project?
That's one of the major problems, I am working hard to become a game designer and personally I want to get right into developing my own IPs. This game is more like a learning step. There's also the fact that my family has companies that are in a dire situation, unlike most people, my life doesn't depend on my education, but instead depends on world economy, managing social circles & in general, risking my financial life daily
So, I shouldn't really make any big promises like other fangames may do.
Can you depend on your team to stay in contact and put in the necessary work along with you?
I really don't have much of a team, programming/spriting is taken by me, I am new at programming but I am pretty confident in graphics department. I also have art covered, all I need is some musicians for sfx and music. But, in general, yes, I will and want to depend on my team.
Can you regularly update this development blog and push the project in other locations in order to garner publicity, as RPM is a relatively small community?
I will try to update this devblog as much as I can. As for other communities, I don't want to gather too much publicity before a demo is released. I would actually prefer to develop the full game before it spreads to other communities. I spend so much time in this place & I know that RPM is where I can find many talented & creative people.
How passionate are you about this project? Is it a fleeting idea, or something you want, with all your heart, to see through to the end?
This is the trickiest question. Sometimes, I don't want to work on it & sometimes, I am passionate about it. It really depends on my financial situation, whatever I have time or not. Afterall, in the end, this is a fangame, it can wait. But my survival or social life can't
(Not to mention that the country I live in is at the brink of economical collapse & possibly civil war. Really makes it harder to live peacefully
Thank you for being honest
