I'm going to stop responding to reviews of my old games. While I do enjoy getting feedback, I'm not actually getting feedback any more. The reviews I get now tend to be either:
- People telling me about the scenes they made, often with a badly-written RP-style narration
- Complaining that an older version doesn't have a certain feature and giving it a disproportionately low score as a result
- Something along the lines of "BEST GAME EVAR 100/10!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
...none of which are helpful to me in any capacity. The second type in particular is just downright annoying and nonsensical, and winds me up every time I see it (why are you bitching about something MMSC2 doesn't have when MMSC5 is a thing? Fucking play MMSC5 instead!)
This is, I think, another reminder that I've outgrown my NG fanbase, if not this website as a whole. When I made the first MMSC I was a borderline-autistic 12-year-old, much like most MMSC players seem to be now. But now I'm almost 20, midway through university, and studying to become a professional developer. I've grown up. My fanbase here hasn't. Did I mention that one time a kid from here found me on Facebook and sent my sister death threats just before a major operation she had to undergo? Yeah, that happened.
I don't like to moan about my fans. I mean, you guys made me. Front page, Daily Top 5, ad revenue cheques: that was all you. I hope you'll continue to support me in the future, whatever I end up doing. But please...grow up.
