Jeez V2.0 Aria - Lost in Shadows released with lots of updates, and lots of bugs. Knocking em down as soon as they are brought to my attention, sometimes think the playtester works and hides bugs from you!
Ack life be getting busy. Should have V2 update for the Aria - Lost in Shadows Beta done soon though. Was going to do a smaller update first but already made so many changes it necessitates just doing a large lump sum update. Soon I think I will have practiced the systems enough to move it to completed games, and move on to making it into a full concept, Aria - Do Nightmare's Subside? (also sequel).
Learning pixel art to assist with editing and creating art for my projects. Currently doing a pseudo 16x16 style to practice and limiting myself to a 4 color palette. Maybe I will get a game out for the current game jam with the style? Depends, still working 60 hours a week as an essential employee.
Just going to use stationary water for the randomized maps. Sure, particles would look cool... But this is about compromising and not spending countless hours making the perfect water particle for each set piece with water.
Maybe I should get rid of the Banish ability in my game. It's a non-elemental spell that doesn't even appear in the magic chart. It's only there because my Elementalist doesn't use light or dark magic. It only effects summoned creatures.
