I'm writing this as I do my live-stream blog (kind of). I actually stopped midway since I wanted to give you guys my attention. These things are always short.
I'm still working on mechanics and not sure I'll be done before August, but I fully intend to try. The environmental battle system is kicking my ass like it did before -_- For now, I'm focused on the basic mechanics before I deal with the complex stuff. I've also downgraded the battle animations for now since that also eats up a lot of time. This is not even an alpha of the game demo after all. It's a prototype, I think it's called. Point is it's not 1.0
This was a small update, I know, but I've been busy with real life stuff as well as the game. A lot of unexpected things have come up (like loss of internet at unexpected times). I still appreciate everyone's support. It means a lot to me!
This week has kept me busy for all the wrong reasons.
I'm back to working on mechanics and the environmental battle system. Because I don't have my notes anymore and am rewriting everything, I'm dealing with old issues I ran across the last time. Fortunately, they're familiar so I have some idea of what to do. Still gonna take me a while since I'm back to improvising. But with school over until the end of August, I should be able to work on the game more fluidly after tomorrow. I'm hoping to get this done before school starts back up, but no promises.
What do I mean by that? Well, if you caught my stream earlier today, I've been left with a lot of housework and high maintenance pets. I got maybe an hour's worth of work and then like 10 hours worth of housework. I didn't think the house was such a big mess, but wow! Or maybe I'm OCD and never knew til now. Either way, 3 shedding pets, tons of plants in hot-ass weather, dishes from complex meals, an 8 hour job...yeah, I'm always busy. Fortunately, they'll be back tomorrow afternoon so the burden will be lifted. My parents may be retired, but my dad loves to keep busy.
A big thanks to everyone who's still supporting the game, even now. I've had more setbacks than I care for, but I can finally see the finish line.
Sorry for not posting anything yesterday. Truth be told, I have literally nothing to report. My finals are two days away and I'm drowning in homework and practice tests. I was hoping to get a little bit done, but I couldn't get the time. It's the same reason I didn't do a stream yesterday. Come next Wednesday, though, I'll be free and finishing up version 0.5 as soon as possible.
Sorry for the disappointment, everyone. I'll keep everyone posted!
