Hey guys! So I'm beginning work on a small demo that I'm tentatively calling Project Melancholy. Because I'm a 3D artist with no previous programming experience, this will be a great chance for me to learn a lot of disciplines outside of my own work.
One thing I've always admired are the devs on Twitter (#gamedev, #indiedev, etc) and other social media sites who very regularly post updates (no matter how small) and engage with the community through them. It's totally inspired me to want to do the same throughout the development process of this current project! I totally have no problem with being transparent on where I am in the project, or what I've been working on that day/week/month.
My can of worms question is: At what point is it smart to begin posting development updates on social media? Should a project be at a minimum point before putting your games idea out there?
