I've been hacking on Roguelike Browser Boilerplate non-stop. I've had some really great feedback from people testing it, and I'm in the home stretch now fixing and polishing the last bits and pieces.
But something has been bothering me about this project and I couldn't figure out what it was. Something is making me really worried about releasing it.
I'm no stranger to launching. I've got projects with hundreds of GitHub stars and I've product hunted stuff, and been on the front page of HN, but for some reason this time is different. Then I figured out what it is.
What's different is this time it's a paid product.
I'm scared of the money because payment up front means accountability and expectations. When I got feedback on how to price this I was alarmed by the answers. They were much higher than I expected. Looking at what I have created I am getting hardcore imposter syndrome at the idea of somebody buying this and finding out the horrible truth, that it was made by just some guy on the internet. 😱
Of course, there is only one solution: keep going.
