        Bug festival, eh? Sounds fun. Is it anything like the Download Festival, or the Reading Festival? If so, I Imagine it's filled with awkward tent sex, drink, drugs, and okay music. :p

        Well, the worst of it was because I usually don't run any saved game while testing small bits. Got a few problems with some of my plugins data.

        @Vaena : Same here. The first goal is to be able to produce an ok enough demo. So that's the part I'm working on. Also, i want to give more stuff for my alpha tester to just walk around and speak with everyone.

        It's a lot of extra work and thinking for some optional content. I'll probably keep working on it for some time. On the bright side, it's still content. It brings some life into the characters. Hopefully some people will enjoy it. :x

      The hardest part when designing quizz is actually to come up with plausible enough wrong answers.

        A few days of no feedback is pretty common, just give it time. I'm planning on playing through the submissions when I can, though it'll have to wait until the weekend.

        Actually since it's the first time I release a game, and was in a bit of rush. I wonder if it's working properly. I'll try to test it a bit more during the next days and eventually release a v1.1 to adjust some minor stuff.

        I'm up to 6 events already (with 2 doors...).
        About 1/3 of the mapping is done (90x45 map).
        The 2 main characters are also done. I just need a few more NPCs.
        And then mostly writing and eventing !

        Very relatable. Suddenly the work needed to game time ratio goes through the roof in those segments.

        It's like making art: hours of work and a person looks at it for 2 seconds :p Or cooking a long meal, eaten in 15 minutes.
        But when it all comes together it's worth it.

        Some players know about the work. Others will think it was much harder than it actually was ;)

        You get this often with beautifully designed in-game maps. You might spend hours to make one really pretty map and the player will whizz past it while holding down the dash button within 5 seconds. Whoosh. All the hard work is barely even noticed. :p

        @Kes : Honestly, I'm not sure yet how it will sort out. It still feels pretty hard to create different "rooms".
        @bgillisp : Yeah Kind of. One of the bosses has a huge appetite. Seemed fitting that the whole party just got swallowed. lol

      After 200+ maps, and counting, I wonder if maping is not the worst part. Luckily, I can work on other stuff to take my mind off it.

        I don't exactly hate it, but I'm probably not particularly good at it within the limitations of RM. At some point I just get tired and need to do anything else. lol
        Cutscenes on the other hand, I love it. It feels more like actual programming. I just wish I had the sprites to make them better.

        I like big rosters, if the characters are different and have at least a little bit of story. It's more fun than being stuck with a few characters that I don't like.

        I know the feeling. Played Star Ocean 4 recently, just wanted to punch the lead hero in the face so bad...
        As a player I like big rosters too. As a game maker, not so much. lol
        On a usual game, you have the whole story to develop your characters, it kinda feels easier. Love the challenge though : more possibilities, more fun with the dialogs...
