Just a note...
04/03/12 at 9:17pm
 
I'm currently drawing the very last piece of artwork for Dungeon Crawl.

What's been keeping the game back is a whole bunch of artwork I had to do, and in the last few days I've kicked my ass into gear and been drawing up a storm.  Now, finally, I'm on the last drawing, which is the final boss for Gates of Infernyssus.  After this, I have to color a couple dozen drawings, then tidy up the new Gates of Infernyssus book, and, I think, the game will be ready to go live!

I'm excited, you jerks!

I bet its taking so long because Biff takes a disproportionate amount of time to draw breasts.

His male butt-cheeks however are perfect first time.

Haha.  Actually, I finished all the Hero drawings way long ago and have only been working on the Monster and boss Monster portraits.  No boobs there.   Sad

Time to draw some female ogres?  Grin

All drawings are done, all of them scanned.  Three and a half more to color.

I've been at it almost daily.  This weekend I probably won't get much work done, but it's safe to say that all artwork will be completed next week.

I don't have a time approximation for when the Adventure Book will be completed.  I'm not sure how much work needs to be done in there.

Not having much time to work on the stuff since my boy is spending his summer vacation with me.  Basically all my free time goes to him.

As for the progress, there's only one more piece of art that needs to be scanned and colored... and it will be a very quick color job since it's going to be only a few colors... but I seem to have misplaced the artwork!

So, my plans so far are:

1.  Locate the artwork.
2.  Scan the artwork.
3.  Color the artwork.
4.  Place all the new artwork in the game.
5.  Create Game Component pages for the new pieces (Mostly Boss stand-ups).
6.  Review the Adventure Book.  The Adventures have been tweaked, and new maps have been made for all of them, but I'm going to give it one final pass to add more "event" style stuff.  In the end I felt that there was too much "just go in and fight" in the Adventures, and not enough multiple choice/multiple outcome stuff in there.  Basically, more interactivity with the dungeon beyond killing stuff.  It's kind of a big project, but the payoff will be worth it.

After all that, that's it!

I'll post updates when I get any of that list done.

Alright so scratch 1 off the list.  Found the wayward artwork in a folder with a bunch of other Dungeon Crawl artwork.  No idea how it got separated.

I'll try to get to 2 and 3 soon.

That said, this summer it's going to be difficult to get much done.  Work's got me slammed as we have to prepare a ton of shit for Comic Con, and at the same time, my boy is spending his whole summer vacation with me, so my attention is split between those two things.

I'm gonna try to make time for finishing up DC, but it might be slow going for a few weeks/next month.

Awesome!

The final piece of artwork is just about finished.  I'm gonna try and get 4 done, and possibly start on 5, but I know that one is going to be a real pain in the ass.

Will keep updating as things happen.

Hey guys, had a liiiiittle bit of time this weekend and got started on 4.  I spent quite a while getting all my files organized, because everything was just ALL over the place, but now things are good.  It looks like a bunch of the artwork took a hit when my hard drive crashed way back when, and I had to do some restoration on some of the graphics.  I'll have to do a whole lot more if the old graphics need to be repurposed for some reason.  Sucks pretty hard.

Anyway, I've started putting the bosses in their frames (got Square and Round done, now I have to do the stand-ups), then add a few more regular Monsters, and then finally an NPC.  Then I can get started on step 5.

So!  In the middle of step 4, and I'm trying to work with all these files which I stupidly put together, and now I'm thinking, I need to re-do all of the Hero/Monster/Boss game tokens/standups.

The problem is that I have a very inefficient system for the files, and they're all strewn about, and it's giving me headaches trying to add just a few characters to the mix.  It's going to be a bit of extra work to unify everything and make it all better, but when this is done (it's a night's work) we'll have a system that makes it easy to drop in new graphics, thus lightening the load when adding new stuff to the game.

But man, what a pain in the ass!

Anyway, that's the update.  I'm just about finished with 4, then 5 is actually going to change into "Create new pages for all character components".  Not too big a deal.

Thanks, I'm glad you're enjoying it!

The game's been on the home stretch for over a year now Grin  I just keep piling on more work just to make it a liiiiite bit better.

At this rate though, barring any unforeseen interruptions (another hard drive crash would be FABULOUS!), I'm really hoping to have a final release by the end of the year.
