It's going to be a slow couple of weeks on the gam mak front because I need to get caught up on work in preparation for the sluggish winter season. I will probably have to move the tentative deadline to mid-to-late December. The tl;dr is I'm gonna need at least 80 hours to finish the game to the level of standards set forth in the demo (and ideally more) - that's about 4 weeks of part-time effort.
Here's where I stand with everything:
Planning: 95 percent complete (2+ hours of work remaining, mostly in the details surrounding the plot twists that are coming up)
Mapping: 70 percent complete (10+ hours of work remaining)
Eventing: 50 percent complete (60+ hours of work remaining)
Database: 40 percent complete (5+ hours of work remaining)
Part 1 Rewrite/Expanded Intro: 0 percent complete (5+ hours of work remaining)
I'm really hoping that I don't get screwed over by life here. I REALLY want to finish a game, even more than when I attempted to do so with Solitary. An illness and then a pretty crazy relationship kinda put Solitary on the backburner last year. Luckily I'm in a pretty mellow place in life, so I don't expect the sky to fall here.
