It’s been 3 weeks since I last posted? Time sure files…
It’s true I haven’t been working on the game too much, but at this stage there’s nothing much to show, and no one wants to hear (read?) me talk about how I struggle with code problems.
The biggest task ahead of me right now is putting the sprites in. I really, really, REALLY don’t want to do it. It’s so tedious… Playing the whole game, frame by frame and adding each expression. This sucks for me because I’m such a perfectionist when it comes to things like this. To be honest, when I play a VN a lot of the time I don’t even look at the character’s face, unless I pick an option and wait to see how he/she reacts. Still… when I think about a line in the game, I know exactly how the character would say it, but the player doesn’t. Punctuation helps of course, but I’m never sure if people actually catch the difference between “Oh.” and “Oh!” and I tend to use them a lot. The best thing I can do is help them by changing the character’s expression. So I have to make sure to do it right. This is why I dread the thought of putting the sprites in. It’s so much responsibility… And no one hates responsibility as much as me.
I didn’t really know what to put as the mandatory picture of the post. So… I thought since Valentine’s Day was just a few days ago, some funny pick-up lines from the boys. 😛 Not very creative, I know.
