Hey I’m back again. Last week I announced that I decided to switch to a bi-weekly update schedule so that I’d have more to talk about, which is already paying off because I have a ton to talk about this update! I’ll first be talking about the changes to the AI that I made, then talk a bit about the health system and some of the feedback I’ve implemented before I talk about what I’m aiming for on the next update.
I’ve been busy this week about as much as I usually have been, but I’d like to say that I’ve thought about it and decided to move the blog schedule to bi-weekly, meaning that I’ll have one out every 14 days instead of every – on Wednesday as they always have been.
The reasoning for this relates to my general dissatisfaction with posting weekly while working at school, something I mentioned during last week’s report. While weekly posts made a bit of sense when I was working far more hours per week, they still take time out of my day to write and ultimately don’t convey a whole lot that’s worth drawing out just for a blog. I’d much rather write a longer blog every two weeks about more important notes of progress than struggle for something to write about every single Wednesday.
As this blog is more for posterity than for communicating with an active user-base, I’m pretty comfortable with doing things this way.
I suppose my aim with this blog was to chart my progress, meaning that as long as I have interesting information to chart, the timescale doesn’t matter. Twitter is better for posting the shorter kind of stuff I’ve been putting here, so I’d recommend that if anybody reading this would prefer it. As it stands, I’ve found a blog is more of a good way to reorient myself to my design goals, making it a necessary piece of the production as I brainstorm out my immediate goals and look at how they’ve been coming along.
With all this in mind, yeah: Two weeks, should result in longer posts. See my twitter for shorter-term but less consistent content. Next blog is next Wednesday.
We are back to the regularly scheduled devlog with a busy week and some good progress. I mull over the art style a little, talk about the current and future state of combat, then mention a few small things I did before talking about what’s coming up next week.
We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Programming…
Hey folks, it’s Wednesday. This is going to be fairly sparse, but I want to get this out fast to get back to work, so I’ll try to recount what I’ve done recently and show a few pieces of art I’ve enjoyed recently to make it visually interesting.
I’ve been listening to a NieR Tribute Album recently, which isn’t a genre I typically listen to, but it takes a bizarre and super fresh take to what is probably one of the best soundtracks of last decade. Anyway, onto the blog.
It’s still Wednesday somewhere in the world, which means it’s time to share what I did over the past 7 days – this time from a hotel in San Francisco. I talk a little about the AI’s current capabilities and what I hope to accomplish next.
Thus begins the task of implementing the enemy. Most of the talk is my plan while the webm’s do the real heavy-lifting if you just want to see some progress. I can also confirm this is a Wednesday blog now.
