Moonbright this week? Maybe...

I really thought it would take me a lot longer to make Moonbright since it's a much more complex game, but thanks to Frostfall it isn't taking nearly as long as I expected. I've mainly just had to write the story bits- almost all of the code was able to be transferred from Frostfall, so there have only been a few instances where I've needed to make totally new code.

The whole reason Frostfall took as long as it did was because I was both writing the story and learning the code, because I had no idea what Twine could do.

But now that I'm getting more comfortable it's just a matter of copying/pasting relevant bits of code from one game to the next. I wouldn't be surprised if Moonbright is finished this week :)

I've got all the "side endings" finished, so I'm just working on the grand finale ending now- basically, the ending you'd get to if you do all the side quests and all that stuff.

I'm even more excited to share this one than I was to share Frostfall! Moonbright is eeeeeepppiiiiiiiiiiiccccccc!!!

Just don't rush yourself. Take advantage of the fact that you have no deadline to meet and ensure everything is polished to perfection.

Also, there's a speed run of Halo: Combat Evolved right now on the SGDQ twitch stream. You like the FPS games, right? I'm not a big Halo fan, but I'll leave the stream on in the background while I play something on Steam.

Yesssss, I love halo! I actually just replayed the original about two weeks ago. Still my favorite FPS of all time
