This sure has been an exciting week, Pangaeans!
I don't know if you follow sports, but if you do, you knew history was made November 2nd. For those who don't, like myself, you wonder what the big deal was. The big deal, non-sports guys, is that the Chicago Cubs have never won a World Series (Baseball championship) since 1908. And they never made it TO the World Series since 1974. They were presumed cursed because that's impossibly long for any baseball team to have such a dry spell. That dry spell ended this year in one of the closest games the World Series has ever seen. You heard it from me first: Hollywood is gonna make a movie out of this real soon!
Ok, enough sports talk (or maybe you skipped here because you care that little about it lol)! What's been going on? I've recently sent out a poll. Originally, I had The Adventures of Ace be a book series, but considering the fact I'm also making fun of RPG inconsistencies as the game goes along, I can't help but wonder if I should make it a video game instead. For the time being, I'm keeping it based on a book, but if players want to do make it based off a video game instead, it won't be hard for me to change some things here and there. Bottom line: There would be no delays if it turns out the polls favored a video-game theme of a book theme. Here's where you can go to vote:
This brings up another announcement I'm not happy to make: I've decided to remove the release date for now since I'm coming across other ideas, problems, etc. I really apologize for this, but the goal is to make this game RIGHT and Since I became unemployed, my focus has been elsewhere. Namely, finding a job, go back to college, and trying to pursue my other goals. I have bills to pay after all, even this website and my MMOs.
Speaking of which, I want to apologize for Miirah's chapter being late. It was goofiness on my part. As I was doing the quest, I kept passing by the spot I needed to get to and didn't realize it until I analyzed the area more thoroughly. Color me embarrassed...hopefully that won't happen with these two. Selvin's chapter will be up sometime Saturday and I'll try to get Miirah's up Sunday. Don't worry about Korvik, I haven't forgotten him. He's simply on standby until the right time approaches.
This leads to my final news report. I haven't abandoned Demo version 0.3, but it hinges on the poll's results. I decided to go through with expanding on the game a bit past New Home Town after all to the first real boss fight. It's pretty much ready to go, but my dilemma has me keeping from sending it out. Once I get the votes collected and it's been decided, then I can make the changes necessary (or not), and deliver Demo 0.3 into the new year.
Thanks for everyone showing support for the game!! Keep bringing in ideas and other suggestions!
