    Hello all, it's (almost) June, which means it is time for another goal and progress thread. For most of us, it is summer vacation, which means it is time for vacation to exciting locations.

    [​IMG]

    Or, we can instead make exciting locations for our characters to go to! Please post your goals and progress for the month of June below.

    June Goals:

    -Well, RL is going to be really busy in June, as I'm teaching 2 6 week summer classes which end June 28th. So I'll say my goal is to do as much on the game as I can without burning myself out. Thankfully the game is so close to release that I can probably do my last items that I need to do for it in one week, then use the rest of the month to get the trailer and such together. So my goals are:

    -Finish the proofreading run-through of The Book of Shadows.
    -Get an official title screen. What I got will work if I can't come up with one, but I'd like a better one.
    -Find a couple graphics which will help in towns IF I can find them. If not I don't think anyone will notice, but I'd like them for a couple little things which will make the towns look better.
    -Update the manual
    -Update the trailer

    1. Finish up the mapping and plot flow. Unless something comes up, I anticipate only 2 more towns (I hate towns) and 3-4 more dungeons. Yay~
    2. Begin creating encounters and actually balancing the combat out. You know, the part that's actually fun. Sooo sick of mapping, I almost want to pay some below-minimum-wage slave to do it for me.

    6.1 Update:
    -Finished the proofreading run of The Book of Shadows. Also made the balance tweaks the game needed for Chapters 7 and 9, and tested them. Only thing left to test is make sure the optional super dungeon can be beaten, which is the next thing to do.

    1. I didn't manage to complete the May goals so I still have to complete the character portraits! 3 are done along with different facial expressions. Infinite more to go! (Depending on how the story goes nee characters will be added from time to time)
    ...I'll just do 5 more. For this month.
    2. Place doodads on all the empty rooms...
    3. Fix the collision boxes because pixel movement is a pain in my back.

    Am I allowed to ask for a quick feedback about something?

    Would you play a game with this type of artwork? I've honestly never tried making character busts before... if this is not allowed for this thread I'm soryy!!! I'll remove it if that's the case.

    Oh. It's June. Well OK. I actually don't really know what I'm doing this month, since it's exam time, so my primary goal is just to get my game past preliminary testing (AKA, my family) and get it on to secondary testing (AKA, anyone else) so I can get some decent feedback and work towards making it public.

    Also @Hyouryuu-Na I like. It's quite cute, though I would increase the contrast in some parts.

    Good thing I didn't make 'post here regularly' a goal, that one I would've failed so much the past couple months. xD
    I finished my May goal, sort of, and went back to some older notes and plans for my June goals:
    • create the proper map with spaced out rooms that I'd planned using my placeholder greyscale tiles
    • use said map to see if there's-- I mean, to see the things I haven't thought about (and maybe get some feedback on the layout before I commit to anything)
    After this, things get a little less clear; in theory, I should be able to get these things done in a few hours tops, but the time management thing is the tricky part. So for now, everything else gets put on the Nice To Have List:
    • some proper designs for the rooms and furniture (actually excited about getting to iterate on all the things. I get brain implosions from just thinking about the sheer amount of possibilities I have for everything even after some decisions I'd made earlier this year)
    • style tests for the busts. While realistic-ish proportions are pretty much a given with me, there's still so many different ways I could stylize things. Again, excited for many, many options

    June will be the month. The month my long awaited V2 release of Journey of The Scroll releases.

    I literally have only 2-3 characters I need to cut and level their lines, then I have to apply them all. I might be able to do that all today, add some stuff tomorrow (more interactables), and then compile it. I smell a Tuseday release.

    Congrats on that @Kokoro Hane . As for the goals I'm working toward for this reporting cycle, I started work on updating scenes and locations as well as asset materials, including a few left-field potshots that are designed to be so unanticipated that you'll have to see for yourself as to what happens. This also includes two new dungeon levels that I just finished to start the month (okay, so it's actually one regular dungeon and a new, final sublevel of the massive endgame dungeon that I already have).

    I hope to eventually get my cyberpunk RPG, Collector, into a playable demo.

    Goals:
    • Add an "Unlock door?" choice tree to every door that can be unlocked (normally, you either unlock it or can't based on your Security skill level.
    • Add more unique content, whether it be NPCs, quests, or just interesting things in general to both of the existing city districts. This is sure to take the longest and is only a general overall goal.
    • Playtest the game.
    For a fantasy RPG (which I will be renaming from The Four Runegems to something else), I have A TON.

    Goals:
    • Redo all the dialogue to coincide with lore revisions.
    • Add more unique content, whether it be NPCs, quests, or just interesting things in general.
    • Re-balance/change items to coincide with lore revisions.
    • Finish the class and subclass designs.
    • Update all skills to coincide with lore revisions.
    • Map out story line plans.
    How many of these will actually be completed? Who knows. I do this as a hobby (and not to mention for free), so progress is slow.

    Goals for June, hmm... I'm not really sure, but I'd like to finish mission II.12 at least. Now that I defined all upcoming secondary missions, I want to map them :D

    As for progress, at least I'm done with a new type of transport ship, a mix between a carriage and some space tech :

    Major rewrites. A recent story change that impacts one crew member has forced the decision to write a matching plot twist for another.

    @Schlangan So happy you shared it with us sorry I am a wee bit long here.

    This is my B-month and I think all the first third and end of it will be about exterminating bedbugs. So I want to get done my cats heads and Itchio trial content. And I want to do that Hybrid Lettership that I was to do for months.

    Yikes at that rythm, the apartment block will collapse on me!

    (also, trying to take good time with the feline company)
