I've been making promises about my games for years that I haven't kept.
- I promised not to make a Riddle School 4, and then I made one.
- I promised not to make a Riddle School 6, then I made Riddle Transfer.
- I promised to make RT a whole series, then I stopped after one game.
- I promised to stop making so many fan games, then I made more.
The only promises I haven't broken are that I won't make a Riddle Transfer 2, and that I won't make a One Night at Flumpty's 3 (the latter of which is a much more recent promise). I don't regret my decisions to stop working on these series, because I've been able to branch out and experiment with other things as a result. However, I do regret my promises.
I thought that outright saying I wouldn't continue making something would be a "freeing" feeling, and to an extent, it is. Saying I absolutely wouldn't continue the Riddle Transfer series meant I no longer felt like I had an obligation to finish it, and I could work on anything else in the world if I wanted to. But it also meant my ability to return to it, if I felt one day inspired, became impossible, and that feels... limiting.
The only reason I've made these promises of perpetual discontinuation has been to put ease on myself; I wanted to stop the people who ask me, "Will there be a One Night at Flumpty's 3?" from continuing to ask that question by giving them a very finalized response. I didn't want people to be too hopeful for something I felt little confidence would ever exist. But I've come to terms with the fact that these should not be promises.
I hereby withdraw these promises. I can't promise that RT2 or ONAF3 will exist. Although I can't promise that they won't, either (even if it is unlikely). My personal policy for a long time has been to follow my inspiration wherever it may lead me--but who is to say it won't lead me back to places I've already been? And if it does, who am I to say no, if I believe I can make people happy as a result?
That's what I've been thinking about lately. *eats a closet*
