Have a good Monday, everyone ! The last week was supposed to be devoted to the creation of the dialogs of the first cutscene but a great misfortune happened to my production hard drive. This one has finished is life in a loud crashing noise. So I had to buy another one and reinstall all my softwares in order to be able to work again on the game. Fortunately, I lost only about 1 hour of work with the help of bitbucket. If you still  not work with an external source control, I really recommend it. It can save hours and hours of work in case of hardware problems. Before the crash of my hard drive, I began to draw a little  civilian who will walk in the base during the cutscene. I still have some work to do on it to improve it. Here is an animation of it:

During the week, I discovered an extraordinary website for planning video game projects. His name is Hacknplan. On this website, you can write your complete documentation. In addition, you can plan your work with the Agile method. Most importantly, there is a free version that can still do a lot for individual developers. I recommend you take a look at it: http://hacknplan.com/

In the next update, there should be more things to show since I changed my hard drive. If you have questions or comments, you can post it here.
