I am glad to hear this. Historically during that time such romances did exist although below the radar, so there is no reason it couldn’t be done in Gilded Rails. I didn’t want to give false hope so I did not respond thus to Idon’t. So thank you for stepping up and answering.
As this title is one I am waiting for, I am waiting until release day to play it from start to finish. I don’t want any spoilers.
Well, damn, I mean, the first XOR may have taken 6-7 years to write, but that’s not indicative. Writing the first book of the series is in many ways a lot more than writing one book. Outlining the series as a whole, pinning down its ultimate goals, worldbuilding, setting and consistency and themes and and and… Basically all the work done on the first volume pays forward into each future installment.
Writing is still hard, and a lot could happen, but XOR 1 only came out last year and I see no reason to assume that XOR 2 won’t be out until, IDK, 2024.
It’s also worth considering that as the series goes on, keeping track of the branches, variables, and relationships within the games will probably get more complicated. XOR 2 doesn’t have all the planning of the series on it’s head, but it won’t necessarily be easier to write than XOR 1 was
Yeah, you can’t really tell in advance. Sometimes life happens, and you know. I was mainly thinking of the Harry Potter series, but that’s not really a good equivalence. I was just trying to point out that “seven years per installment” isn’t good math.
