The hardest part of making games is learning how to do it. Now that you know how to make a good one, it won't take as much work as it did the first time. Don't look at it as losing your work, look at it as cutting loose all the dead weight and moving forward a leaner, meaner, game making machiner.

Giz speaks the truth! Your games may be gone, but the knowledge you gained while making them will stay with you!

Use that to your advantage! You won't regret it! Big grin

So your harddisk died?

Yes, it's really painful. Learn to make backups. It seems like almost everyone loses a game or two because they didn't make backups!

You first have to lose a game before you start making backups. =p

Too bad humans prefer to learn from their own mistakes rather than from the mistakes of others.
