The State of Things

Hi all, it's me. Ya boi skinny penis


..Anyway.

So, my last blog for this game stated I was on the final countdown to completion...fat lot of shit that was, huh? Aha. To put it in the simplest way I got stuck on that branching section before the boss rush.

To put it in a far more intimately honest way, my life has been a pile of fucking shit for the last 8-9ish years and my motivation waxes and wanes depending on how shitty it is, hallelujah.
Regardless, I've been working on the game again.

My currently goal is to get an exhibition demo out by Jan 10th, 2019.

But wasn't it almost finished?

In reality? No. It needs far heavier testing and there's a lot I'm not happy with. A big problem facing ReE as a whole was that I couldn't get the game to balance. PTB is a fuck when you want things to be both fun and difficult.

Which is why I've switched to MV.

But Puddor, doesn't that involve rebuilding the entire game?

I've ported all the maps and plonked in a 32x32 tilesize script so, no. It does not. There's a few things currently not operational (the message graphics, animations) but aside from that majority of the structure is intact.

That said, given I've refreshed myself and been given a burst of motivation from various sources, I am broadening the game's scope-- not beyond what the original intention was, but to be how I had originally envisioned it.

I could waffle on about my game design document and my intentions for a long time -- and I might if asked, but honestly I feel I often don't shut up in blogs as it is.

The other notable thing is that I've also decided on a couple more details which is:

ReCrisis is being built as a prequel and not as a 'first game'. ReEvolution comes first and then you play ReCrisis to gain a greater understanding of what happened 'before'. That is not to say ReEvolution won't refer to ReCrisis events. Because of the way I'm building ReEvo you should be able to replay it with a different perspective and understanding once you've completed ReCrisis. Entwined games but playable separately, you know?

I'm probably going to hide Cosplay Crisis. It...as much as it physically pains me to do so I don't want that game contaminating these games. I know I'm not the first or last person to be inspired by something that eventually grows into its own entity separate from the inspiration. I don't want anyone else coming into ReEvo or ReC thinking...'where's the Final Fantasy'.

Shocking for me, I know. But if it's a step I have to take for these games to be taken seriously...it has to be done.
