It's been a while since I last posted, mainly because I've been busy working on other games besides A Golden Wake. As I said in the last post about "game sorbets," sometimes breaks are needed.
In the past month, I made a very short and silly game for the MAGS competition called Bertha Butt's Boogie! as well as a game for the One Room One Week competition. This particular game is called The Rebirth, and was a lot of fun to do, because I collaborated with Ben304 to make 2 individual games which serve as teaser vignettes for something more. You can get both my game as well as Ben's, called The Reaper right here.
So what about A Golden Wake? I have gone back and tweaked every single background, as I found a much better lighting technique which makes them look a lot nicer than they did before, though honestly I think I might be the only person to notice this. I've also been practicing drawing character portraits, and feel I have reached a level I am pleased with for the time being.
On a personal note, I will be moving to New York on August 16, so I expect a bit of a delay in game-making during that transition. However, my goal is to have Chapter 2 completely playable by the time I leave, so I can focus on getting the second half of the game done once all the dust from moving settles. I'll definitely remember to back up my game before then, however!
