I’m pleased to announce that, after a long absence, Vendetta: Rise of a Gangster has once again resumed in development. Suffice it to say, one of life’s “little hiccups” got in the way of finishing this thing in 2013, so here’s hoping 2014 will be a better year…
I’ve decided to start a brand new thread for the game, partly for a fresh start and partly because the last one was, I understand, way too big for easy phone access. If you’re interested:
Rusty as I am, I’ve spent the last few weeks easing back into things (and trying not to break anything in the process!) but there is at least an update of the Demo Chapter One now online. It will however be quite a while before the full actual Playtest resumes, or is even itself updated.
This Demo update includes -
Reworked some aspects of Big Jim’s Bathhouse, mostly involving Carina’s story.
A brand new potential romantic interest / entirely new Demo scene if you choose not to ‘linger’ too long at the Bathhouse… and thereby have some spare time before attending Gina’s funeral later in the day.
Various minor tweaks and balancing throughout, e.g. characters you meet will more often take your appearance into consideration.
The Modus Operandi screen has had an overhaul too, partly to begin taking into account the improvements made to ChoiceScript during my absence, and partly to implement some planned long-term features. An immediate example of this is the “Your Appearance” description, which now mentions more than just the clothes on your back, and alters accordingly as you progress through the game.
As always, any and all feedback would be very much appreciated.
