    Never played that game but heard a lot of good about it!

    WOAH! DIDN'T REALIZED IT WAS IN MY HOMETOWN!!!
    Finished playing Pier Solar and the Great Architects. Not bad, some good moments. But why did they add mandatory agility puzzles?!

    Liquid water has been found on Mars, says NASA. I feel like a little kid.

    Bet with water there's also life on Mars.

    Knew it! If there's water on the moon it'd be strange to not have it on Mars.

    That picture makes me think of Dark City. And Mr Quaid... you plan staying 2 weeks there?
    And I'm done! 174,000+ words translated into English. Next time, I make a Pac-Man clone. ;)

    Cool! I am doing the opposite of you sometimes... My native language is French! ;)
    cabfe
    cabfe
    Same for me. Usually, you translate from a foreign language into your own (in my case, French) but the cost for hiring a professional translator was just too high (5 digits). I'll still have to hire a proofreader/copy editor, though.
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    Ack! I understand. I didn't wanted one of my animated project translated by me once and... when I saw how the title was translated in English, I was afraid it would be a word by word. o_O
    I have one free Steam key for Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack to give, if someone is interested.

    :3 Seems nice you already played this once?

    Not yet, but I already had a copy from another bundle. So I'm giving away my second key.
    Man, it's so hard to let go your baby. I should be fixing bugs only, not constantly improve and add new stuff...

    Marquise*
    Phew! I started to read your sentence and was worried for your human and/or feline family at one point!

    Sorry for the scare, Marquise! No, they are all right ;)

    An interesting set of analysis and advices for Choice&Consequence:



    It's 2 years old, but still valid today.

    That was very informative. I'm taking mental notes from that.


    I always found it kind of weird how character loyalty in ME2 somehow made them less likely to die in the last mission. XD

    I have to REPOST this on Steam. Thank-you very much!
    English native speakers, you don't know your luck. When you're done with your game, you don't have to spend months translating afterwards, and then have it proofread/corrected...
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    I'm French-Canadian too (Quebecer), and I can relate. It ain't just proofreading... For now my first test game is bilingual half-English interface and dialogues in French! :p


    Just wondering if I just should do another game on the side with the English title and interface and dialogue... arrrgh!


    Well if I do all in French all Spanish/Germans/Phillipine/Japanese/Italian/Etcetera peoples won't understand anything but English!
    cabfe
    cabfe
    I know of French developers who release their games in English only, because internationalization.


    Mine is bilingual French/English, but I'm pretty sure the vast majority of players worldwide chose English at game launch.


    However, I think it's important to release your game in all possible languages you can translate into because, as a player, it's so much comfort to read in your language.
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    I'm all with you on that one. Might even recruit translators ;)
    Guys, if you didn't already, consider data compression. I had my game go through a thorough resources compression diet (audio+pics), it got a 52% reduction in weight!
    I have something really important to say, but... NDA. Seems to be the most recurring word these days(^o^)!

    They're a pain but necessary. Remember though, if you think it's bad hearing the word, imagine how it is for the person who needs to stick to the agreement ;)

    I find these agreements to be an abomination. A way for business to literally screw with you and forbid you to talk about it.


    Just remember that you can declare an NDA in abeyance if they do not meet their end, to the letter.
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    I know I have a show my stuff ache now XD


    NDA!
    Playtesting my game... I guess it's a good sign if I spend more time improving rather than fixing events. May it stay that way!
    I wrote the prototype for my trailer, played it in my head. It's over 4 mins... Gotta cut and cut again. Although I may keep it for an extended trailer afterwards.

    Any trailer more than 2 Minutes just bores me and I leave.


    So yeah, 2 mins max.
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    At least you didn't had the blank page syndrome. But true, sometimes cutting the fat is the longest hardest task!
    cabfe
    cabfe
    I'm not afraid of the blank page. On the contrary I tend to write too much T-T. I thought I had only told the essential of my story+description of the gameplay, but it's still too long. Gameplay is around 50s by itself, leaving a short amount of time for story.


    I'll aim for 1'30-2'00 max then.
    How do you like Commentary modes? I'm writing mine, but I fear I might be too verbose.
    cabfe
    cabfe
    New scenes are scheduled, but I didn't think about skipping long previous ones. I'll see if I can add it. Thanks for the suggestion!

    That's actually a very good idea you had there cabfe, I would like to see it in your game. I personally would do it with voice though (would be more cool).
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    It depends. I like it when replaying and hearing about techniques.
    My endings are done, now working on the credits. It feels like it's over but there are still work to be done in redoing old parts that look subpar quality-wise. And then playtest-translation-more playtest->release!
    Sometimes, you reinvent the wheel. I needed some special ground tiles so I made them for the 4 directions. Then thought it'd be nice to have curves. Before you say it, I drew all the positions instead of making an autotile... At least, it's easy to convert.
    Seriel
    Seriel
    I don't make tiles, but when mapping, I like it better if they're in pieces, sure, it requires more work, but it's also flexible to make what you want with, instead of messing about with Shift Mapping and other annoying things.
    cabfe
    cabfe
    I already did an autotile before and it took a long time. That's why I only wanted to create small parts. I just got carried too much in the process ^^

    One day...just one day... I really want to learn how to do these things so I don<t feel the most stupid of the tread. ^^
    Cool, Indiegala's bundle today has The book of Legends and 3 Stars of Destiny, along with some other RM games. *Picks up credit card*.
    I think I've just drawn the last bust of my game. There's still a few non-interactive NPC sprites to do, but I'm starting to see the light!

    Can't wait to see the result. Hard works pays off! I'm kinda jelly xD!
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    Try not to burn your punch very hard by showing them everywhere! ;) But I want to see your game soon. :D Seems worth it just because of the busts.
    Darn flies. I can't open a window without having flies circling around the chandelier. At least that makes living toys for the cats.
    cabfe
    cabfe
    Carnivorous plants would suit you though, Dalph ;)

    Around here it's standard to have screens on all the windows to keep the bugs out. I didn't know it wasn't common everywhere.
    Marquise*
    Marquise*
    I should get those magnetic closeable net doors. Since I have cats and plants on the balcony... Well I would be cruel to not let the flies in :p Note that mother cat is really happr to sho that to a human relative century old lady she's still able to run, jump and catch those buggers! GO MOMMY CAT GO!

Decided to add the option to customize decor/furniture in the player's base -- a couple of item options per furniture slot, some different carpets, etc. It's not really difficult to event, but oh goodness it's much more tedious to implement than I anticipated :'D
Dunno but maybe I'll make an art raffle soon. Anyone interested in it?
