Hi again Pangaens!
It's been a very productive week! A lot of writing was done, the 0.3 Demo is getting more ideas, I'm getting some job interviews...one step at a time, though, let's go over everything:
The Legend of Pangaea
The focus has been on making the 0.3 demo and whether or not I want to expand the game past where it ends off at. I just don't feel it really captures the point of the game as well as what to look forward to. While I'm thinking about it, I'm also experimenting on redesigning some places.
The tunnel has been completely revamped. It will still have the same items and whatnot, but the layout is and design is different.
Zack's House is not being messed with too hard. I'm just trying to add some 21st century realism to it without trying to make it look like a specific place in America. The idea is I want players to feel that Zack may have come from across the street. not just some fictional city.
I'm also testing out an idea regarding New Home Town, but I don't like it much so far. I'll keep trying it out, but if it doesn't work out, I'll just save it for another location later in the game and put it back to normal.
The Adventurer's Journal
With the inclusion if Selvin, the Elvaan, and Miirah Jominsa, the Mithra, calling this section Korvik's Journal didn't make sense anymore. For now, I'm calling it The Adventurer's Journal so that all three are included. Mainly because after a certain point in the main story, all three will converge and join in the main adventure. When that happens, you'll be able to see the viewpoint of the three heroes as they join together in the missions to come. Some will be similar and some will be different.
Selvin and Miirah's story will be the focus for the time being to get caught up to Korvik's level. Initially, I had no intention of adding the other two, but I realized some people may have a fondness for the other two cities and what their stories are about.
Korvik's story will come back at a later time, but I'm still playing him to get him prepped for the missions to come. He's my main character for a reason. For now, I'm unlocking all the Advanced Jobs I can find without breaking the flow of the game too much. Writing down all the cutscenes is a bitch...
That's about all I have to report for now. Selvin and Miirah will continue getting more entries next week (I'm taking a small break so I can focus on my game-making) and I think I'll have a decision on what I want to do with Demo version 0.3 by next week too.
Thanks for everyone's support!! Hope you continue to enjoy the stories and the upcoming Demo.
