Hey everyone, CykaDev here!
[Insert absolutely generic apology because I forgot the news yesterday]
For real though, I think I might just alternate between Sundays and Mondays for these news. It’s just much more convenient for me, since I don’t have the pressure to release the news every Sunday. Even though I keep forgetting. Please forgive me.
Let’s move on to the actual news.
First of all, the website I’m working on. There aren’t any notable features that I’ve worked on. I’m mostly working on the administrator panel to make sure that all the news and games will be easy to manage. I’d like to make it so that the CykaDev website eventually becomes our own little game store once we have enough projects, and for that, I have to make sure that we have all the tools we need at our disposal. It’s a heavy task, but I’m pretty sure it’s worth it.
Now, about the game itself. Recently, I’ve been noticing a slight decrease in my efficiency. After thinking for a bit and overdosing on coffee (note: actually, I haven’t), I’ve finally decided to rearrange my planning to go through my days in the most serene way possible. As of now, the writing rhythm is still the same, I’ve recovered my efficiency, and I feel much better. So that’s cool!
As for the efficiency regarding the game, I think I’ll be done with the second PD tomorrow or the day after. I’ll have to move on to the third one, meaning restarting everything again, but this is part of the job, after all! I’ve reached 170.000 lines for 851.000 words. Little fun fact: 851.000 words is about 56 hours of gameplay, which is almost what we had initially planned for this game. Pretty insane to think it’s gonna be even longer.
Now last but not least, I just want to thank all of you for still being part of the community and following this project. As the days go, I keep getting more and more excited to share this project and get your feedback. It’s a real pleasure to be able to work on such a game on a daily basis, and I hope it’ll be worth it in the end.
That’s it for today’s news. Thanks for reading, and have a good week!
