So today I got a mysterious anon question in ask.fm (which is weird in itself because I don’t have that linked anywhere and WHY would a stranger talk to me through that I don’t know, and if it’s not a stranger why anon?) that asked “where I was nowadays”.
Going over it with some friends (because it was puzzling. Who’s asking that they don’t already know? Where else would I be?) I decided it MAY be someone who is not really close to me but somehow is interested in our game making…or well, I’ll just take this as a chance to update the blog. Anything works.
SO! Long story short, I’m working in In Search of Dragons. It’s going slowly, and honestly it’s pretty ARG work becuase it’s not the game I’d WANT to be working on. It’s the game we HAVE to work on, since after THAT we will move on to attempt a commercial game, and just abandoning dragons is somethign I don’t WANT to do. (Still, Dragons, bro, fuck you.)
So basically I have to revise and renew everything, because Dragons is now OLD (we put out four games since then, holy fuck this game is a writing mess). The old plot is done and revised, lotsa changed detials, scenes, and all that crap. Fomar is hijacking the gameplay and working his magic. It’s slow work, but we’re getting shit done, and with some luck we’ll be able to put out a polished demo around next month or so, I hope (by polished I mean the intro fo the FINISHED game, while we finish up the rest of the testing and so on).
I may as well say it here too: we’ll put out word for testers when It’s time (not quite yet but soonish). We’ll put a recruitment notice in the forums, but if anyone is interested send me the word (and by the way, testing means grueling, annoying, “try to find typos and break the game” fiddling, not just “playing the game early”, so if you just want to do that, believe me, don’t ask for testing because I am a royal PAIN to deal with when testing (and you know, generally, but especially when testing))
If anyone is interested I’m also looking for some savvy english speaking/native people to go over the script (and by this I mean the TEXT parts only, no gameplay) to check for the bane of my existence: typos and weird english usages or errors and all that jazz >3<
If anyone’s up to it send me a pm or get in contact with me and we’ll talk~
And….that’s it! We’re still working, so if anyone out there is worrying that we’ve dissapeared off the map, don’t fret. We’re still banging away.
