Devlog #4 - Feedback and Secrets
Hello everyone! Welcome to this month’s devlog! If you just stumbled upon this, I am Adrienne, also known as insertdisc5! I’m the developer, writer, artist, main programmer, etc of the game. The game being In Stars and Time, which is the next and final game in the START AGAIN series, following START AGAIN: a prologue (available here! And currently 15% off for the Steam Summer Sale!). You can find out more about In Stars and Time here!!!
ALRIGHT LET’S GET TO IT
What did I do this month. A lot, I dare say! Sadly I can’t show much because it’s either 1. Secret or 2. Boring to talk about.
Some big personal news though, is that I've been working on this game for the last year and a half (?!?) while juggling my daytime job, which I've realized a few weeks ago was a little... Too much. So I'm very happy to announce this week is my last week at my job, and I'll be able to focus 100% on In Stars and Time for the very last stretch!!! Yahoo!!! I'll miss the friends I've made at my job, but I'm glad I'll finally get all the time I want to make ISAT the best it can be!
And so, since I knew July would be the start of working on ISAT full time, and more specifically Act 5 and 6, I've taken the time this month to work on Acts 1 through 4, playing through them, fixing any bugs I've been ignoring, and adding any events and sidequests I hadn't added yet. I've FINALLY finished writing and implementing Secret Sidequests for all the main characters too, and I can't wait for everyone to find them!
I went through the visuals I had so far as well and updated them a little. Look at this new gameover screen.
My publisher Armor Games Studios also finally got to play the latest build of the game, and I've gotten some very valuable feedback from them! Like for example: did you know people who either don't play RPGs or even video games at all might play my game. And so. It means. I should have more tutorials explaining how the game works. It's one of those things that I completely forgot about!!! Some people don't even know the arrow keys make you move!!! Unheard of!!! So I've added a bunch of (quick! short! fun!) tutorial sections to the game to make sure everyone can have a good time!
Getting Armor Games to play the latest build also means I got some nice story feedback.
A lot more happened this month that I can’t talk about, but Oh My God! Some good stuff is coming!!! But that’s all I have to say for today! Let me know if you have any questions, or if there’s any aspect of the game development struggle you’d like me to talk about! See you next time!!!
AND DON’T FORGET TO WISHLIST THE GAME ON STEAM ALSO IT REALLY HELPS BECAUSE STEAM’S ALGORITHM IS MORE LIKELY TO SHOW OFF GAMES WITH A HIGH AMOUNT OF WISHLISTS THAT’S THE REASON WHY GAME DEVS ALWAYS ASK TO WISHLIST!!! OKAY BYE!!!!
