Half way to forever…

So, we’re half way there already, huh?  Alright, I can live with that.  I got hung up for a while and didn’t make much progress for since the last update.  I’ve got the transition into battle ready.  I generate the enemy’s evomemes and deal with pre- and post-battle dialog.  Battle itself should be hard to implement… it’s mostly some numbers games, right?  Anyway, I’m gonna try to get a couple more hours’ work done tonight in case I’m interrupted tomorrow.  I still wanna get all the main mechanics done tonight if possible.  We’ll see what happens.  I’ll try to put out one more update before I go to bed if I can manage not to suddenly crash.


Also, next time I’ll have a screenshot, I promise!

Slow, incremental steps. Kinda like evolution?

Another short update – Making slow but steady-ish progress.  I’ve got the very basics of displaying and moving between rooms working.  I would post screenshots, but… it’s a text based game!  I figure there’s only so much of that sort of thing anyone can handle, so I’ll wait until I have a lot to show until I use up your patience.  Next step is to allow for rooms to add context-based commands to the prompt, such as talking to a person in the room, or battling something, or… whatever?  After that, it’ll be time to tackle actually creating the ‘mons and building the inventory, status, and battle systems!  Eek!
