It would seem so! Another 3 hours of work on this today resulted in a whole new chapter/episode/day/whatever being completed. I am now finished 3 of those and moving onto a fourth.
I've been thinking about the demo request from the previous blog, and in case you missed my response, I said I hate releasing demos but it is probably doable. What I could do, for the sake of a demo, is to skip right to Phase 3 of development after the completion of Phase 1. This would result in an entire day/episode/chapter/whatever being completed and ready for testing. It'll go straight to my locker, as I don't want reviews or anything for an unrefined version of the beginning of the game. I'll blog about it when the time comes.
It's been a busy few days for this project, and I'm miraculously moving forward at a quicker pace than I'd even hoped. What can this mean for the actual release date? Well... I'm still not certain, but it'll be moved up drastically if I can keep my pace. That also depends on how I divide my attention between this, FH's new version, FH2, and EL4. I'm crazy that way. I'll keep y'all posted on how it's going though, and we'll start to get a clearer picture over the next month or so.
