Ten is a good number, at least for me. Diablocide X
has ten Demons; In Praise of Peace
has ten chapters.
I titled this blog post "X" for a number of reasons. The most interesting one for you Crazegame fans is that I am
planning on finishing (or at least working hard on) DX after the summer. Karsuman and I are already cooking up our next game* set in the universe of Visions & Voices
that we're going to dive into after the summer, so Diablocide might take a while... but it will get done.
This is because IPoP is a prequel to DX, and helps set up the game world for a potential third game I've been thinking about. Hm. I guess we'll just have to see how that turns out! Note that the games are still very, very separate; about a hundred years between, but it is the same world and there are definite connections. You will not need to play both games to get the full story or anything like that (although the third game will be much more intriguing if you played/beat DX, and I will probably allow you to use a DX save to unlock bonuses in the third game)**.
The catch is that my work with Karsuman comes before my personal projects, with this exception for IPoP. Basically: you WILL see a completed DX someday, just not today. Or tomorrow.
While Chapter III: Services Rendered
doesn't really have any gameplay yet, I have about a third of the mapping done, almost all of the dialogue written, and locations of mini-bosses/optional bosses/etc. mapped out. It has been an interesting challenge for me since it is an RTP forest. Screens will be coming shortly so you can judge whether or not it works.
*I say "our next game;" while I'm gone for the summer, there is a chance you might see another game set in the same universe come out without my direct input... you'll just have to see!
**Oh, what's that? That is the beautiful ringing of the Ruby Bells. They are sounding out "scripting makes your 2k3 games completely obsolete."
