It was a lot of hard work to do in 2 months for YaoiJam 2018. I am shocked I got anything done, so there is some level of pride in the work that I put into it, even if it's a really short game! There was so much scope creep, and I am grateful for all the support and contributions from people in my social network. I am truly humbled that people were willing to contribute to this silly game of mine! The people participating/following the jam were also very positive and supportive. It was a great feeling.
I hadn't coloured on computer in so long, but there was so much drawing/colouring to be done for this game. I learned a lot about asset making, writing management, programming (where indentation matters a lot), and all that jazz. I would love to share all of that some day, maybe after I recover from this jam!! I am really impressed at how powerful Renpy is as a tool, so much potential!
I'm excited to go back to comics though; I think I'm more comfortable telling singular narratives, rather than branching ones.
It's a milestone! Today I was born, and I also birthed a game. Cool!
