Welcome to the Game Universe. My name is Joshua Ewell and I am the Solo Indy Developer for the games produced here. I build video games using Unreal Engine 4.
Somehow... my game got deleted...
I was super close to release a demo... maybe in 2 more months... and somehow my folder got corrupted...
The main character would not stand up correctly and somehow my content folders were not working as they had before. Configurations were all off... I could not figure out why. I was implementing a new system called Universal Monster and I started having bugs. But, I know it was not Universal Monster because I tried using it on another project with the same engine and same character build as last time and it worked fine.
I think I just lost 3 months worth of real care and work...
Upon trying to repair bugs the wrong folder was removed and because the project was so large it was not saved in trash... thus it's gone forever.
Just like all things in life.. nothing lasts.
I cannot remake it as it was special and a lot of heart, soul and care went into crafting the story line and details. Now I am trying to figure out where to go from here... I need to learn to always back up my work........
I wonder if this troll who trolls all my work got into my system some how? But how I only saw him trolling me on social media accounts and Youtube?
I deleted all my work before because I constantly got trashed on by trolls and realized they are not real people. Also I had very little people showing interest and I would get tired of trying to make the process work. But... I realized this time to just hunker down and finish a project... then now this :(
I'm gonna remove social media and other links to anything where anyone could get access... also i have to chalk it up to my own human error as well because I am the one that deleted the folder.. Somehow thinking it was not the entire game but the main components of my backed up FPS that I could easily re implement. But.. no.. it was the actually entire data...
Now.. I suppose I will take a hard look at what I should do to make this work and how to rebuild everything and start over? or do a new project? No... I think Killing Evil will be built and I will remake it. I will make this work. Regardless of trolls and haters... hackers and more....
I will find a way to make this game come to reality.
