I'm really cruising through my game now. Making a lot of progress. But I'm thinking about other potential games as well, including Superstep's idea. Some of the concepts I've entertained is a day and night cycle, clothing (instead of equipment), and maybe having your character have to eat and sleep. Don't know about that. If there was a day/night cycle, I'd like it to be slow, and count down in a real time for about an hour per day, and an hour per night. Maybe traveling by public transportation would take time out of that.
I've been talking to Superstep about a game concept I can't stop thinking about. In it, you would be in a JRPG type world, but there'd be no combat or saving the world, but the main point would be to talk and interact with the townspeople and residents of the world. And you could also walk in between the towns to discover other fun interactions, but there's no combat, no mining, no farming, none of that shit, just interacting with people.
I've been working pretty hard on my visual novel. It's time consuming, but it's coming into shape. I think I finally found a "game" medium I can make myself (except for art). I've been fucking with the flowchart (it's huge now) and experimenting with variables. So for instance, if you make a decision, the game will remember it and characters will talk to ou differently. I always liked talking games, but most visual novels are too anime and don't appeal to me. Curious to see how it turns out.
I haven't played Mass Effect or done any writing these past couple days. Just been lazy and aimless, haven't gotten anything done. Hope to change things today. Hey, check out this French made JRPG coming out at the end of the month: http://store.steampowered.com/app/366640/
