    Sketch of my characters having a friendly conversation. :)
    My imagination works faster than my development process. At least, I can take pleasure in treating it as an adventure. :)

    I'd be surprised if you were capable of developing something quicker than you were able to imagine and think. :p

    Developing faster than thinking is the problem with games today sadly...

    Everyone's imagination can come up with more (hundreds of times more!) than they'll ever be able to make into a reality. The key is to make sure that you're picking out the best ideas to actually develop - and to have the discipline to stick to the development process for that great idea instead of chasing a new idea every week!
    Still working on Chapter 2. I originally said it was done, but decided to extent it a bit more because I felt the story was too fast-paced for my liking.
    I don't know how fast everyone works, but it usually takes me three-four months to finish a chapter. Mostly because I usually spend one hour a day to work on the game. Then I need to spend some time thinking on the story and drawing characters.

    Is it normal or abnormal?

    One hour a day, nearly every day, sounds like an incredibly healthy way to approach your game dev hobby, honestly. I wish I could be that healthy about it!

    If you're only committing an hour a day, though, months to complete a chapter sounds about right, and even a bit low (meaning you're making efficient use of your time).

    A new companion for the second chapter for the female protagonist's route. Although I say new, this character is one of the four original character that I have planned from the beginning. She underwent some redesign as I improved my drawings.

    Handshake protocal activated.

    Developing chapter 2 for the male protagonist had its highs and lows, but at least I am getting close to ending it and move on. :)
    Been slightly struggling with developing the latest chapter, I think I will downscale my ambitions and make it more linear.

    Linear is better if solo, as handing branches takes forever. I had branching endings just based on a choice you make at the end of the game and it took one day for each ending in the end.
    Good thing I asked my friend to playtest one of my chapters for me. He found bugs that I wasn't aware of. :D

    The more playtesters you have, the more bugs they will find. Solution ... don't have playtesters.
    As I am very soon going to let my friends play the demo of my game, I am fixing those annoying color lines that appears on top of the characters head durng battles :blush:
    A part of me wants to return back to the beginning and first two chapters and remake them with parallax map. But I have decided not to. Every chapter is just another step in the journey. No need to walk back unless I have to revise dialouge.

    I'm not familiar w/ any of the specifics of your project but I think that's generally the right decision!
    I like new party members. Unfortunately, that also means a whole new set of SV for them :(

    Those can be tedious to draw

    Use front view battles. Problem solved ;)

Just spent $174 on Shining the Holy Ark on the Saturn. Good lord.
My brain when designing quests:
There is piano, it needs help --> The organ (yes organ now) is missing a component! --> Where the heck am I supposed to put this missing piece!??! --> Add an entire new mini dungeon specifically created to house this new piece. --> Connect this brand new mini dungeon to an already designed dungeon with background information about the town it's found it.

Me: :LZYhuh:
Rising of the Shield Hero!
Sheesh, Guys, don't think you can throw easy prices like $25/$50 on potions/ethers then have monsters pay you $75 for killing them (never understood that concept btw lol) and think it'll all work out!!! Just realized my prcies vs payout left my players unable to get decent stuff without some serious farming from the start, i'm about to call H&R Block to help my MC get his stimulus check just to buy new armor :LZSlol:
