It’s time to tally up the results again. The big winners this month in terms of progress were various wedding-related tasks, and reading. I finished two books this month without actually spending any time reading recreationally. My cell phone e-reader turns dead time into reading time. By the way, when it comes to cell phones, borrower beware.
I did get in a pretty good stab at the scripting engine, though it appears that I’m being outpaced by our friend Michael Morris at Blue Booth Studios. He doesn’t know it yet, but we’re having a race to see who can finish an RPG engine first. En garde!
As for other exciting developments, a very talented friend of ours offered to help spruce up our website. I’ll have more info on that for you soon, and hopefully a link to his professional page so y’all can admire his handiwork!
Once our scripting engine is finished, it’s time to start playing with it, and to do that we’ll need to start prototyping our maps. I think I may be the one who will be drafting them initially, and as a result I expect them to be ugly as sin. Oh well, I’ll still take it as an opportunity for gratuitous screenshotting!
Lastly, Lewis and I are pursuing a few leads for finding an art contractor to create some finished assets for us. We’ll be drawing on experience from our arty-type friends to come up with some reasonable estimates, then making a plan of attack. We prefer local people. Feel free to give us a shout if you know somebody.
None of you schmucks gave me any suggestions for Friday Cinema. Now we all have to suffer…
