Improved dialog system and near feature complete

Improved dialog system and near feature complete

Another week closer to a full game, and this week sees the squashing of close to 60 different bugs but also small things that I don’t like or need little improving. So a “fix” could also be something simple like: “move the dialog up 8 pixels”. It’s all a bit of polish mixed with bug-fixing and making sure we have the most kick-ass game possible!

I’ve been pushing daily-updates, since we now have a QA team testing the crap out of this thing, so I want them to have the latest build available. That means version numbers increase with a letter  (0.32a..b..c..g) during the week, and on Friday we push out a fresh new version!

I would call the current build pretty much feature-complete. There are no plans for adding big new things, the coming week I’ll just be adding achievements, and we’ll have to worry about translation (especially the font used, since it doesn’t support languages like Russian.. so I have to figure out a solution for that – meaning, find a font that works for such languages).

So not a lot of things to mention in this weeks update, except that IF you update: delete your save-game files, because you’ll most likely miss out on triggers and events and dialogs. So update, and start a fresh new crash..uh.. game!

Last week I introduced a cuter-version of PedeyB to the game, and in yesterdays devlog I talked about that and more!:
