So the results for the latest Ludum Dare just came in today and my first thoughts where “Oh just a bunch of 3s with some 2s again, It’s not even as good as my last games score with fun and overall. And I though it was my best one yet, I guess I haven’t improved at making games all these years. Especially as it seems like most creators just get such boosts in such a short time”. As the dare voting system is 1-5 stars constantly getting 3s makes me feel mediocre and lowers my every fluctuating self esteem. Then I realized how unhealthy those thought are to me. So and took and looked into how healthy that state of mind actually is.
