Hello there! First of all i don't know if this is the right section for this..
Ok so i need a little help with an idea. I have always been fascinated by open world games where i could explore the world freely and i would love to create a game like that but sadly it is rather impossible for a sole dev. So could you help me by giving me an alternative that would be easier to achieve and would give.. i don't know.. 'the same experience' in a way. For example i loved The Forest and it isn't very complicated having no set quests or side quests, you don't get to create a character etc. I have looked into other categories of games like platformers and such, but nothing attracts me like a nice world to explore.
Btw i love designing terrain/world and creating a story if that's of any help.
I know this is kind of vague, but i hope you can help and save me from wasting a huge amount of time by starting something i can't finish
Thanks in advance
