In my experience game development is a game of place holders. As you develop you game, in the rush of creativity, you simply cannot be bothered with making something look nice. So you create a placeholder object. Something that isn’t necessarily good, but definitely good enough.
This, however, is a double edged sword. On one hand, you have something that works, but on the other hand you have a mess of work that you have to do in the future to make the project look somewhat decent.
I currently find myself in this placeholder hell with the enemies that make up the bulk of the challenge in “The chain broke”.
They are definitely good enough, but there is nothing distinctive about them, they are just “good enough”.
moving forward, I will have to find a way to make these monsters something to be feared. They need to be made scary.
