Hey there everyone! Just a quick progress report so that you're all up to date on how the update is going.
I figured I should go ahead and give this report now since I've pretty much finished and wrapped up the first of the three paths. (Ricky's, as that was the easiest and quickest to do so I just decided to get it done with today. Though it is a little longer than I thought since I decided to add something more in to even it out with the other paths. Those of you who have wanted more scenes with your divorcee will be happy about that.)
Other than that, the QnA/Daisy Kiddens Sidequest is almost done, but that's mostly because I realized, timing-wise, that the sidequest had to be set up here but happen later. So you'll activate the sidequest in the QnA but it'll be stored until after we catch up with the "present-day" part of the story.
And, finally, Yolanda's QnA has become a lot bigger than I originally anticipated it would be, but it's also progressing well. (Just a little slower than expected due to size.) I really wanted to try making it flow like a conversation, so it's now the scene with (so-far) the most amount of variation depending on your previous choices. But, it's fun! I like exploring all the different ways your conversation with Yolanda can go.
Word-wise, well, I'm doing Camp Nano so I'd say that's a pretty easy way to track most of what's been written (give or take a few considering I started working on this update a little beforehand), so, that means I'm 26,201 words into the update (with a solid 90% of that being located in the 1x1 Interview).
I'm hoping it won't be too long before I'm able to put all that and more into the actual public demo. I have a stopping point in mind for when it'll all be actually-updated and it's almost directly after you leave the party so it won't be so long after I finish up these three scenes.
But, yeah! Thank you for your continued patience!
