Ladies and gentlemen, LAWyers and LAWyettes of all ages, I am pleased to announce the existence of the Act I Remake! Having been worked on for a number of months now, this new version of Act I is intended to be a significant upgrade over previous versions. Most maps have been tweaked, edited, and in many cases completely redone. Some examples:
All new mapping, as well as other new gameplay additions are thanks to the tireless and talented efforts of SGCN.
In addition, the new version will feature voice acting, new subquests, and new picture cutscenes! Hereâ€™s an example of the latter:
All new artwork comes from the remarkably talented hand of Reirei18 and is colored by the brilliant King-sama.
And letâ€™s not forget improvements to the writing!
The basic structure of Act I is virtually complete; all that remains is the wait for the â€œbells and whistlesâ€ to be completed, as well as beta testing. My hope is that everything will come together in a couple of months. If you have any comments, questions, suggestions or other feedback, Iâ€™d love to hear from you!
...would you like to see in a piece of artwork? I'm holding a bit of a contest to determine just that! It can be anyone from the lowliest of NPCs, to the most major of main characters. All you have to do is post here (or in the topic in the LAW forum, should you be so inclined) and let us know your top two favorite candidates! The two with the highest vote count will be drawn by Shmeckie (the creator of Money and Power, no less). This contest will conclude by the end of October, so let us know before then!
And this is the first. Well, I'll briefly note that I continue to work on Love and War in general, but more specifically am trying to get a smaller-scale side project done, which hopefully will have its own page(s?) here on RMN sometime this year. (Maybe, possibly, hopefully, coulda shoulda woulda. *ahem*)
That aside, I continue to wrestle with the idea of perhaps releasing some sort of significant update, maybe even a full-fledged remake, of Act I. I can see a lot of things I'd like to change or update with the benefit of hindsight, and with a new mapper, I might just be able to have a more graphically pleasing Act as well... It might be a good idea, but it would probably cause a fair amount of delay and disruption to Act II (which itself has been delayed for I-don't-know-how-long). Hard to say, hard to say...
Oh, the LAW website has also moved, so I've updated the links.
