Night into Day and still 10 Seconds away

As the night turned day drags on, so does the length of my titles…

Well, I’m heading off to bed at a good place! I’ve set some more realistic constraints on myself, got work done and finally incorporated everything into something workable.

The game, still not named yet, will now consist of the following:
1). 2 Spirtes
2). 3 Rooms not including The White Room
3). 3 10-Mississppi-second events
4). 3 Choices
5). Around 3,000~4,000 words
6). (5) possible endings; includes sudden-death ones

The music, SFX and possible GUI will be free resource. And, seeing as I’m defiantly jamming this one, I’ll be using some pre-existing code of mine. The art in the form of big pictures and the like is still up in the air and, I’m dreading trying to code even this with my sub-par skills… But I’ll do my best anyway!

This game will be a hybrid VN now too as it will contain timed events but will mostly be text-based aside from that. 10 rooms of the afterlife was way too ambitious plot and code wise already >>” I’m using Micah’s flippant personality to give myself some lee-way and start the plot of at a different place.

Speaking of plot and characters, I finally have some! The two main characters are now Stalarra-Micahla. He goes by Micah and he’s an angel tasked with helping lost souls get to their final resting place*. Darla, our resident Dorothy, is one such soul who’d been making her way through purgatory fine till she got to the “Former Life Reflections” phase. Realizing how meaningless and pitiful it was, she’s holed herself up in a blank slate room and refuses to advance. Until Micah stirs some trouble, pulls some strings and forces her through the last levels to learn the Eternal Virtues and somehow execute them in fun and exciting ways… All in under ten seconds.

I’ll be looking over my post (hopefully) on my computer tomorrow and will spell check and all that good stuff then! For now, I must sleep before I crash for real now!

I leave you with the opening blurb right after you click the start button. It’s rough but eh, it’s 2 AM and I don’t care.

I’ll be programming the preliminary stuff tomorrow so I’ll screen shot it then. This will also include sketches that don’t look like they were taken with night vision and properly scanned instead haha!

Bun Out!
*Not Final Destination I assure you. I don’t want to be sued~

//Dying ain’t easy.
Living just as hard.
Nothing comes for free, everyone has to work hard.
But just existing?
Breathing, eating and sleeping the days away?
Toiling and widing away your youth for what?
No one lives forever no matter how invincible, the dog days of summer make one believe….
That is so.
To the contray.
Life is just one meaningless loop or so they say.
But if a dull life is bad and an intangaible afterlife an even grimer prospect…
Then there isn’t nothing worse than ending up in neither or.
I’m stuck with no way out of here.
Repenting day after day after day–
For what!?
Bloated sense of purpose, mindless games to pass the time?
I don’t have a clue but I can tell you something.
It becomes somewhat of a hassle.
Boring more simply put.
I’d rater watch paint dry but, that seems to be the case already.
Locked up in an all white room all by my lonesome.
That’s what I get for being over zealous.
I wanted to ‘level up’ like it was some sort of game trying to get out from this afterlife.
But reality hit me like a cold splash of water.
Ain’t a got dang thing to do but wait…
And wait…
And wait.
Till now.
The sound of the bell a’ringing, something big is happening, I just hope it ain’t got nothing to do with that idiot of a gaurdien angel again!!//
