Hey everyone! I updated the main post to be more recent. The old version was from 6+ months ago!

If you haven't noticed, I don't update here often. It's very hard to maintain two development logs. If you have any feedback or comments you are completely welcome to leave them here though and I will respond! (aggieblue92 and I talked in email)

If you want to keep track of the project, please follow me on twitter or visit the devlog on TIG.

I'd also like to mention that I have a kickstarter coming on October 14th! Stay tuned!

Hey, your project looks really nice, I like it a lot.
But I have a question. Why exactly do you need to go on kickstarter? Like what are those money needed for? smile.png
Also, as I am from Czech Republic, I could do Czech Translation if you would want me to do so.

 

Technically we could make the game without any funding, but if we did it would take us much, much longer and wouldn't be nearly what we want it to be. We may not use kickstarter, but we simply don't have the means to make this game without financial assistance. Thank you for the feedback!


In Topic: Is story important in games?

18 February 2014 - 12:21 AM

I think it really depends on the game. Some games really don't need a story and the lack of a story can lend to the game's mystery in a way. Take Minecraft for example. No story. You're just thrown in and told nothing. It really worked with that game. Some games really feel lacking without a story though. If you're playing an RPG and you're just thrown in with no explanation, then it kinda feels like all the stuff you're doing has no real point to it. The most important thing though I think is that if you have a story you don't half-ass it. If you put story in your game, it really needs to be a good story. Otherwise it makes your whole game feel sour.
