Well hello again folks, long time no see.
Of course I’m pretty sure only a few of you remember me, if any at all.
Anyhow I started working on the games Ruins a few weeks but decided to hold off posting a topic until I actually got a demo up. Even if it is still a complete piece of crap, I’d like to have at least something to show for my work. Something more than just notes like Drifter. I still have 16 pages(and counting) of notes on this world, but atleast now I have a demo to show for my work as well.
Yeah I know, the demo rather shoddy right now, but most of it was sleep deprived work done during ungodly hours. Rest assured I will be going back and polishing it at some point, but for now atleast I have it up. Also the world is barely touched upon at this point, as most of the stuff I put the most time into and have the most plot relevance haven’t even been brought up yet. In addition these are also the things that are the most unique parts of the world so if it seems too stereotypical right now, just wait. Of course if people would prefer I can reveal some of the bigger secrets right now, but that would spoil the surprise the MC will experience.
Finally I want to quickly bring up my previous project, Drifter. First off it is not a dead project, I’ve put too much time and work into it to just kill it. However I am not at all prepared for it. Just one path was looking like it was going to head for the 100k mark and thats without any choices. In addition Ruins had three main paths that would be almost entirely different. That’s already way too many words for a novice writer and coder like me. So I figured I’d put it on hold, and start smaller. Smaller being Ruins.
Anyhow please tear apart the shoddiness of the demo and let me know if you have any questions about the world, I’m more than willing to answer. Also I’ll be putting up a little encyclopedia of sorts in the game itself for people who want to read about the world, however it will only update as your character learns more. Hence at all times you’ll know the things your character does.
