Howdy gumshoes! Welcome to this month's two-for-the-price-of-one double-dense update! There's a lot to cover, so let's jump right in!
WHAT DID YOU WORK ON?
-Rebuilt the lakeside scene including adding a bunch of characters who existed in a scene we removed because it no longer worked with the story.
-Created new animations for Jenny, Suzie, Mrs Glatz, The Sheriff, students, cops, towns people, and birds
-Redesigned several characters whose roles in the game have changed ( A LOT )
-Completed layout of all secret █████ ███████
-Finished laying out a super spiffy lab scene
-Redesigned one of the big puzzles in the lab scene to be ( hopefully ) more fun for the player
-Created a system to more rapidly import and export dialogue to and from google docs
-Created scene-specifc art for the prologue
-Built out most of the opening scene for the game... the prologue
-Finished story and interaction elements that take place in Suzie's room
-Finished layout and interaction for scene where you escape from Suzie's house
We are crawling ever closer to getting everything in the game built and running. The beta test is on the horizon! But first, Ben and I have been working into the wee hours of the night, day after day. So we will be taking a few days off at the beginning of August. Then it’s a dive headlong into the final stretch of development. It's exciting to see everything coming together as we breathe life into Jenny's world!
I hope you all know how genuinely grateful we are for the opportunity to build this epic adventure! Thank you thank you thank you! =]
