Goodbye chibi Brawl

So for a while there I thought that the project was saved. I was wrong. Of course I'm always wrong. Recently I've stumbled across something very similar to my project and you've probably heard of it. Lego Dimensions. Now let be clear they in no way took my idea, crossover games are a thing and a genre all their own.

But their doing something so similar to what I'm doing and so much than I'm doing it. That it reminds me how much my pewny game doesn't stand a chance in the real world let alone in its crossover genre. I'm giving up on chibi brawl. my last 3d modeler quit, the artists aren't responding to me, we have no budget to speak of, the only person that's kept in contact is Travis and I honestly feel like I'm letting him down.

I couldn't get the rights to barely anything and even the charities stopped responding to me, this game I'm guessing was never meant to be. It's a shame. I loved the concept of doing a game soley for charity, but I can't do that sort of thing by myself, let alone without a charity. I guess this just sounds like a bunch of excuses but this project has been dead for a while.

I still have other projects and I'll be keeping journals for them, but as of right now, chibi brawl has officially ended. I can't say I'm not disappointed but I was stupid to think that this project could ever work. Maybe one day it will be revived or something of the sort. But for now. Goodbye chibi brawl I'll miss you. -A.Snowflake

Don't beat yourself up over it. You at least explored the idea and learned some valuable lessons that can be applied as wisdom in future projects.


No matter how upset your team mates are, give thanks to them and at least give yourself credit for making a decision to close the project rather than muck everyone involved around with "maybe...maybe not". At least they know where they stand, which is important as they can move on - as well as you.


Speaking of which. After such a draining experience, give yourself time to reconnect with your passion. Maybe look at a smaller project that you know you can complete with about...80% confidence.  The goal: to have fun!  Eliminate the stress - financial gain, and all that business nonsense, and just set out to have some fun.  Its the best way to get back up on the horse, so to speak.


Best of luck and I wish you the very best for the future.
