What should I make?
h

So I have this thing where whenever I start making something, which I know I won’t get anything from, after a few days/weeks, when I’m in the middle of it, I get bored of it and stop doing it. And I also get bored when I’m not making anything.
So I’m thinking of making something which I might get some profits (money) from.
Do you guys have any ideas on what I could make which could get me some money?
Thanks

This is a very common problem, and you're not alone. My only advice is to work on smaller projects whenever possible. And when you're working on a big project, use the AGILE/Sprints system to break things down to small chunks.

As @SixBeeps stated, itch.io is a great venue for small developers to make an impact. I can tell you that as long as you keep regular updates on your game it will gain proper traction. I highly recommend learning either Unity or Unreal as they're great game engines especially for indie developers.

Okay I’ll try that @lynnlo

You could try your hand at game dev and publish something on Itch with a name-your-price thing.
