Probably one of my busier weekends in retrospect. Saturday morning, I tried my hand at making pumpkin pie for the group. I undercooked the first one and overcooked the second one, but they’re both still edible and sitting in my freezer right now until Wednesday.
Then Brit calls me up and tells me she and T and heading out to a Long Way Down concert. So we end up spending an hour driving around the city based on bad directions and never finding the place. So we went to the U of A Power Plant instead for a friend’s birthday, where I drank an Orangina and jumped around to techno music while throwing balloons around. Then we watched some babes play with hula hoops. And then a squirrel jumped down on me, but it was a flying squirrel, so it deployed it’s flaps at the last second and glided over to another tree.
Sunday was spend helping my little brother move out of his apartment and back home, where the whole family sat around eating pasta and veggies and watched the Mythbusters bust ninja myths. Also, my mom adopted two more cats from the move, but they’re both dicks like Skittles. At least we got to stick them in a box and carry them around Griswald-style during the transfer.
The rest of the week was spent working on the game. In fact, the whole of the last 3-4 weeks was been spent trying to bring “Incinerations” back up to speed after all the time I spent working on TSL (I’ll blog about that one when they finish it.) The good news is that the first 3 chapters are now fully playable, complete with sprites and over an hour’s worth of dialogue and game-play. Complete nightmare in the programming department getting them working, but I think the worst is over.
In the meantime, I figured I’d release a few screenshots from the game to show everyone what I’m working on. Nothing too exciting just yet. These are just gameplay stills. Most of the action is done through the cinematics, and I’m starting on those tonight. If you want hints at the action, you can always watch the trailer (now on YouTube.)
And it’s Monday! Heroes Season 3 starts tonight! Schweet!
