Throwback Thursday? No, it’s Tuesday

Digging back through my old posts, I found a little something that a bright-eyed Elekctra wrote just after Perfect Chemistry.

Four years later, let’s revisit.

“But I can say this:  I’ve learned a lot from making Perfect Chemistry.  There are a lot of things that I would do differently.This is true. Starting out strong here.

  1. This game will be longer.  I’m starting to outline the storyline and it’s looking like a monster.  Um…no.  Not even close.  Monster plot lines tend to get me in trouble.  I did learn how to outline, though.  That’s saying something.
  2. The writing will be better.  Perfect Chemistry was my first time writing in first-person POV (I usually prefer third-person omniscient).  Since I wrote the script a year ago, I’ve taken a writing class and I’ve specifically worked on my first-person style.  I think this one’s true.  I don’t think I knew how to do a proper first-person back then.  But that’s debatable.  What do you think?
  3. There will be more obtainable characters.  Choices are awesome, aren’t they?  Yes!  Totally did this!
  4. There will be AT LEAST ONE CG.  That was one thing that bothered me about Perfect Chemistry–the lack of CG’s.  Seeing as I’m not feeling too comfortable with my artistic ability (or lack thereof) I don’t want to make too many promises.  But I think I can safely say that there will be at least one CG.  Fail.  There are zero CG’s.  Goose egg.  Nope.  I’m not an artist.  I’ve come to terms with that fact.  Now, I can dream…
  5. The sprites will be better.  On the topic of art, I’ve been practicing, so I think my sprites are just a little prettier now!  Yay!  Yes.*  The sprites look fantastic, but read the fine print.  *The sprites are way better…because they’re not mine.  See above where I admit to not being an artist.  The awesomeness you see is all to the credit of the fantastic SilverHyena.  Check them out.
  6. You will get to see all of the development right here, three times a week.”  LOL.

Looks like I’m four for seven (I gave myself partial credit for two of them).  But you know what they say about the ‘best laid plans of mice and men,’ right?
