How many projects simultaneously?

Discuss game development design and post your game ideas

I would like to ask you about this... According to your experience, what do you think is better: one project, 2, 3...? And how many projects are you developing just now?

We all work differently, myself, active work on one project at a time, but have drawn up plans and ideas for later projects down the road.

Prefer Working on multiple projects.
Trick is to set milestones else you will never finish any of them. lol
I prefer working on many things, it mixes things up a bit and keeps one motivated.
Construct 2 projects: Currently working on 3 long term, and 2 short term projects.
You think you can do these things, but you can't, Nemo!
Just keep reading.
Just keep learning.

I like to keep a few projects running at a time.

One reason is to take a break when it starts to drag and just try something new and light so it doesn't get tedious this can be a bit like brain storming where you just go with the flow and see what happens.

Another is that lots of problems with game mechanics can be solved faster individually rather than in a large project. This way lots of little projects can come together and get to really shine as part of a larger project combining these elements.

Doesn't matter how many you have when you're still learning the program, but for me now I focus on finishing 1 project at a time (and a weekend hobby game :p).

I have 3 very little and easy games and one more complex non-game project running at the moment. :)

Don´t work alone btw, that also helps to keep you encouraged.

I do one project at a time but outside of it I'm doing art, music and writing to keep imagination going.
