Overall I had a long break from the game lately but I've still been working a bit more on it. I started working on the skillsets for the main characters but I think I made them more complex then they needed to be afterwards. I actually want to keep them much more simplistic for this game, so I'll probably be going over that again sometime soon when I'm ready to retry all of it.

I keep making changes to the equipment mechanics as well. I probably will have accessories after all and leave it to accessories, two rings slots and one orb slot. I'm going to wait longer before discussion this further.

I have also made some progress with the new story for Chained Worlds MV. I'm starting it again but with a foundation on what the previous version of Chained Worlds story was about. At the moment a lot of thing are uncertain, but I started adding some flashback scenes of the past and I think I'm slowly changing a lot of the story too, based on those flashback scenes. It's still early thoughts but it's progress.

A lot of ideas on certain scenes have been written out, only a summary of what happens not much of the actual dialogue yet, but the scenes may still change later.

I've been really unsure about whether I want Rohan to have the exact same main story, plot events and character arc from the previous game or not. At the moment with the flashback scenes I've left it in a way that I can keep it all the same or change it entirely, or even change things slightly. I haven't made up my mind yet where this goes but I did want Crystal to seem more important than before with her role in the game, and that's been achieved.

Owen is very different too, possibly going to be a Dark Knight role, he has a bit of a darker personality, while Delicia is more cheerful, but while there is a lot more thought in the characters and there personalities, I'm not fully sure where this is all going yet.

It does not look like much of a progress report but actually the whole story aspect requires a lot of thinking for me, so it takes a lot of time. I think the story so far is a lot better, but based on the scene summaries, the dialogue for the game will remain pretty simplistic at this stage, I think I want that actually but I will decide when I reach that stage what I'd do.

Plan Completion

Plan remains at 15% complete, since I want to redo the skillsets again. 22% drafted out.

Story Plan I'd say is 5% complete. 8% drafted out.

Again, just wait for next time. : )

Keeping an eye out for this!

All the best with the game. ^_^
Good luck, even with simple stories you can end up having a lot to think about at times.

But once you've got a clear beginning and end points in place it gets easier to place the various milestones and plot beats.

That advice is very solid and true. You can do a lot with very little! That's definitely possible. : ) Thanks for the advice and comment!
