Hey guys,

I am a game dev myself and I struggled with motivation a lot until I understood it. This is my experience how to deal with motivation.

In short, you need discipline instead of 'motivation'.

Start with a simple game, something that wont take you more then 3 months to make. It doesn't have to be complex, or even original. Set short and easy to achieve weekly deadlines and monitor your own progress, maybe 1 enemy or 1 level tile set every few days.

Make working on your game a habit, when you get home start working on it after your meal. It takes about 5 days for a habit to stick so after that it wont feel like your working. After a while it may become weird when your not working on your game in your spare time.
