Great palette and good gameplay ideas. I'm looking forward for more of this.
Thank you! I'm working hard on a demo, but I think it might take a while. I think before the end of the year is a good deadline? I'll do my best.
About the story, I hope there's more than what you've shared, there should be something unique about this to make it stand out. You sound like you have your story figured out and didn't share it, so I hope it's cool
I updated the story a little. It still doesn't give much away, but I think it gives a better image of the mood of the story, perhaps.
Well having a deadline is a good thing, and whenever you set it is up to you, depending on how much you want to show in that demo, but I think having a prototype as soon as possible will help you to see which direction you're going.
Also the updated story sounds promising, keep up the good work!
