So after the week 6 update, I realized that I desperately needed to find a pixel artist by the end of the month or I would probably be missing some important deadlines for milestones.
So I put out the word and put up 3 job postings on different artist forums. Coming up with the job description was so terrifying, I was extremely worried that I wouldn’t get any serious replies. But on the first day, I got 3 replies overnight. And in the next couple of days I got more and more, a total of 14. Some were bad, like real bad. Some were good, but hard to deal with. But I finally found someone who I can afford, gave me though out estimates for time to complete, and is talented to boot! Also I have a company logo now, it is like 90% ready, so I can’t wait to put that up everywhere.
I’ve been mostly doing business stuff these past two weeks, but I’ve been programming here and there. I finally added friends to the player party! And I’ve been testing the game on my Ouya, too! Not sure if I will be able to dual launch on PC and Ouya at the same time, yet, but it looks promising.
Oh and I’ve been writing a lot! I wrote out descriptions for all of the main characters and antagonists, but more importantly I wrote the ending! The ending is something I’ve been trying to figure out for the past month, but I finally found the perfect way to wrap everything up in a nice little bow. It’s no Breaking Bad ending, but I am pretty damn proud of it. I’ve got quite a bit more writing to do, but I feel like now I am just filling in the gaps. It’s like a big paint by numbers, I know what goes where, I just got to fill it in.
