Being lazy...

As you might have noticed, I've been being lazy the past few days. I plan on getting a good days work on entities in tomorrow(er...today).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

For a while now, I've been contemplating writing some small utility programs that I might sell for some money. A long time ago, I decided I didn't want to sell any of my games for several reasons:

1. I don't think anyone would buy them.

2. If they did buy them, I would get less of an audience than if they were free.

3. I just wouldn't feel comfortable selling them. Writing games is a hobby to me, and since it is a hobby I don't feel at all stressed about the quality of it(although I do put my best work into my games).

However, writing some software to do useful tasks is something I would like to do. Problem is, I just can't think of any useful programs to write. I'm sure that if I had an idea for a useful program that people would use, I would write it and sell it for cheap.

Who knows though? I might eventually write a useful program, and than you'll see me here trying to peddle the trial demo[lol].

Edit: Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The game the quote was from is "Way of the Samurai 2", a little known Playstation 2 games. It's one of my favorites, though.

Wow, I loved that game and I didn't even recognize the quote[headshake].

I have the same problem, I've never been able to think of a decent application to write.

You could also set up a donation system. People have loved your games so far and I have no doubt that they'd donate to you. Even if its only a couple dollars.

You've played Way of the Samurai 2? I don't know why, but everytime I start playing it I get addicted.

I've considered setting up a donation system. I've heard it does work, if only for a small amount. Still, I would like to write software I could sell, though.
