Last night there was this very loud and flashing lightning storm. I was feeling a bit down for various reasons and I got to thinking about Balance. As for my original goals, Balance succeeded, I created a system that was fairly accurate for my goals, could do almost anything. However, I never finished actually writing it. And, with Turf Wars, I put it on even more hold.

Frustrating, isn't it?

Fluffy and Bouncy are both against me trying something new. I should just "finish it" since I've been working on it for eight years now. On one side, finishing it would be a very important thing. On the other, I don't know if I can actually make it fun to play. The need to simplify it further and further is hitting the point of where the system can't take any more simplification. By its design, it was written to do "anything" and that makes it a complicated system.

I'm just not sure what to do.
