Ohhhh, we're half way there!

I've hit a pretty big milestone yesterday in development, and I'm sure everyoen here will be glad to hear this one: The entire first half of the game is complete and fully playable! That's at least one and a half to two hours' worth of content for those keeping track!

So does that mean we're at the halfway mark? Well, I'm actually quite a bit farther than that! I have many of the materials that I need to continue building the game; all of the non-boss monster sprites are finished, two of the three remaining tilesets are complete, as is quite a bit of the database, spell animations, and other "guts" work.

A lot of the reason that the content takes a while to assemble is factoring in all of the branching storyline paths. Depending on how you handle each of the game's major decisions, some of the key cutscenes have major variations of how they play out. While less noticeable earlier in the game, a number of the game's major cutscenes have upwards of four completely different ways of playing out. It's a lot of work, but I'm excited to hear different reactions to the different cutscenes people will see.

If I had to put a number on it, I want to say that Soma Spirits is about 70% complete as it stands now. Many of the building blocks are there; it's mostly just a matter of putting those blocks together to build the final product.

Thank you for continuing to follow this project! Here’s another awful MS Paint thing I did:

Thank you! Might be more of a trot than a sprint though, haha. I started working full time about a month ago, so I only really get to buckle down on this project on the weekends. Even then, I'm making pretty good time.
I should probably say that the music has received a bit of an update since the demo was released as well, so if you played that, maybe you'd enjoy just a little sampler of a more polished product...

@SpecialAgentApe Sounding really good! Reminds me a lot of VVVVVV.
