I know all of my past attempts of a game or idea have failed (on my past keys) and I know it's because I just jumped into things without any plans or written down ideas. But i'm slowly trying to become a bit more serious in not only how I work, but now a bit of how I act. So i'm trying to form some strict rules for myself since I now wish to try and attempt the world of BYOND RPG (To me, I see it as "easier" because I don't have to stick with the anime's lore, story, and characters, instead I come up with "my own" concepts).
So with all of the above, is SilkWizard's 2 MB 'rule' the best way to go or a good idea. Or do you view it as arbitrary and foolish? and by 2 MB, does that mean the compressed version of a game, or the entire source code (because I somehow find that impossible for a full game). Maybe if I follow the 2 MB rule i'll make better decisions in adding things and asking the question, do I really need that? or am I doing this the most efficient way?
What are your thoughts on the 2 MB 'rule'
