For some time I've been saying that I'll post a journal about the current progress of Babysitting Cream and how current life things are going. Unfortunately, I really haven't had much to post about. Aval0n has been busy with real life and so have I. I do come baring some good news though. My fall semester in college actually starts on August 22nd. With my summer semester ending on August 1st, this gives me some more time to work on the game itself before the fall semester starts. Though I do have to use that time to prepare for school as well, buying books and planning my day to day schedule.
Right now we're still trying to keep with a deadline of getting the scripts done by August 1st. My hope was to have them not only finished, but edited and spell checked by then but as I've said before, real life takes priority sometimes. I can't help but feel like the delays are all my fault though. We've been having trouble organizing a few ideas that I've shoe horned in over the course of the development. Chances are if I didn't keep pitching ideas we wouldn't be this far behind. Even now we're still getting ideas that would go awesome in the game, but we're saving those in a document for perhaps another project.
Along with writing, I've also been doing what I can to help improve the overall engine of the game. While I've made some small changes to the presentation I haven't completely changed the overall feel of the game. Things like background and HUD interfaces will remain the same. The only real significant change I've made is to the dialogue boxes. I finally devised a dynamic system that will be easy to not only post, but change in case of an emergency. This text box style also allows me to be able to hide the text box for certain naughty scenes, and for a future build, allow for a toggle to change the displayed the text in another language since we have received a lot of offers to translate the game.
That's all the updates I have to give at the moment. If you have any questions please feel free to ask them in journal and I'll respond in a timely manner. Please keep in mind though that I still don't have a solid release day, and I can't give out spoilers. Also, I've stopped going to pawsru.org and I really don't care what they're saying about us on there. So PLEASE don't bring them up. Have a nice day ^v^
