Risks and challenges

Making a videogame takes a lot of work. I wouldn't say that any one aspect is particularly enraging, but each aspect of videogame design is challenging and takes a lot of work and repetition. One of the most exciting and daunting tasks before me is the possibility of porting the games to the Wii U and 3DS consoles; this would make Vacuos Terra my first console release, and therefore the fulfillment of one of my long-time dreams.

Despite the fact that it will certainly be challenging to make, I am entirely confident that I have the ability to finish it with a bunch of love, detail, and polish. I've already worked extensively with the anti-gravity engine in the game, a crucial aspect to its design, and the outline for the game's levels, flow, and story are nearly complete at this point. I'm just so excited... I honestly believe this is gonna happen!!! So let's make it!
