I usually come up with at least personality first and then choose a name with meaning that fits the character. Sometimes there are exceptions to this and the name comes first, but I think a character's name is very important. I'll either make one up or choose from a list I have already or I'll search for names on baby name websites and look at the meanings lol

I usually think of a realistic region on earth where the game might take place, look at their cultures names and maybe combine a couple or find one you like.

Job description and hair colour really, Blue haired Knight, Purple haired Healer, Orange haired Elf Chemist. I really don't like meaningful names unless its meaningful that the character have a meaningful name.

Finished that egg-sitting mini-game I mentioned here a couple weeks back. Now to fix the weather system so it doesn't rain indoors while you're playing it. >.> A simple fix in itself; leave it to me to take it as an excuse to completely revamp the time/weather/lighting system from scratch.
I'm really tempting to pre order cyberpunk 2077... should I do it or not :/ I really want to play the game but don't want to take a big hit to my saving because of it
So I need to come up with quite a few action sequences.
Was stressing about this plugin earlier, but pretty happy with how its looking now! Purple makes it pop more too!! :)
