So I had a little extra time to work on the game today. I wish I had a stable release date but it's still up in the air. I was hoping that Aval0n would establish one in his recent journal but there are still a few hold ups. As soon as he gets me what I need I should have the game ready within a week. Since Aval0n made an update journal I figured I should make one as well and tell you how things are going. School itself is going okay. I'm passing my tests and getting my homework turned in on time. I was a little disappointed at my Biology and Art History test scores though but that indicates that I just need to study a little harder. The homework for those classes is keeping my GPA up.
As for the game, all I really need from Aval0n is one more crucial ending that's key for the full game experience. While sorting though what we need, we've found there are a couple other dead ends that need to be addressed but are not crucial for the games release. Like the art, it can be added later to be discovered in another version. I really do think you'll like all that we've added. I can't promise it will be the greatest thing ever but I'm sure you'll enjoy it very much.
While waiting for the content I've needed though I can't help but feel like there's one more change I'd like to make but most people I've suggested this to have said no to it. For the past couple months while waiting for Aval0n to get in gear I've been playing Sims 3 on Steam. I've been experiment with generating backgrounds for a couple other game ideas. This is something I wish I came up with over a year ago since the backgrounds I've been generating have been turning out really nice. Now I've already changed the background once to mixed results and the concept of changing it again is the main motivation behind the big NO! Now what I could do is just recreate the backgrounds the best I can so that way they still capture the feel of the backgrounds already established.
The benefit of these 3d generated backgrounds would be to help them fit in better with some of the scenes giving better angles for some of the more adult situations. Again though, it all really comes down to how the fans feel about this. I know a lot of you are in love with the established static backgrounds and would hate for another sudden and radical change, so that's why I'm asking first. I'm sure most of you would say no but I just wanted to present my case. I've got tomorrow off so I'll post a couple examples tomorrow to show you the potential. Until then I'm gonna get some rest.
Thank you again for all your support, it's always appreciated. ^v^
