Long time no see >w<

I just realized (at 2 am) that I haven't posted any progress for a long time now.
That's mostly due to the fact that I'm not working very regularly on Erayu... cause time and such things... and cause I'm not a real blogger. >w<
I'm never sure what to really tell and what stuff actually is too boring to write about. xD

So... where to start?

Maybe with:

Pictures

No, they aren't just to show you my progress in learning to draw. ;P
They actually will appear ingame from now on. I plan to make those for some of the more funny or important scenes, cause I like those stuff and it's fun to draw them. :D

Menu and Music
I know, most of you very much like my choice of music for the levels... but I myself were never completely satisfied with some. xD
So I'm currently searching for free music to replace some of those tracks. (But just in case I really find some, which I like better than the current ones.)

You may also have noticed that there is a new main menu now. I found the old one boring and wanted to make something more... fancy?
So, if you haven't already... look! (The music is too quiet though -.-)


There is also one more little change. The diary will now be accessible from the ingame's esc-menu instead of from the inventory. (It's just more convenient to use).

Sprites
One of the things that bugged me for a long time now are the sprites of the real world characters. I find that they are still too similar to the ones ingame. So I decided to overcome my laziness and redo them. :D
The proportions are now more realistic and should be noticeable different to the ingame sprites.
So far, all of Josh's sprites and poses are done (and there are a lot of them >_>). The rest will follow.


Dialogues and chapters
I went over my dialogues... nowadays I find some of them really terrible. xD
So I nearly completely rewrote them in the first chapter. I also started to rework some of the second chapter and more will follow.
Also the puzzles changed a tiny bit here and there and some should feel more intuitive now. (At least I hope so >___> )
And there was this one evening where I shared a bottle of mead with my husband... and we spend much time brainstorming about certain chapters and events of the game. And now I have a whole bunch of new and other ideas, that will be implemented.
They will hopefully make the whole feeling of some scenes and the story better...
We'll see. :D

Okay, I think that's all for now.

Have a nice time and sty tuned! ^w^/)
