that's actually a pretty interesting idea. i haven't seen it done before though, has any other game done that?

probably but I can't think of one right now.
It just struck me that in your screenshots, the trees and other stuff lacked some kindof lighting when put near the particles

one bad thing about gm is that you can't ask for all the particle positions. there's no access to them at all (once they are placed and are moving). but yeah it'd be fun to adjust the lighting of an object with the particles

not with the particles obviously, but only with the particle emitter
if each particle emitted light, that would be overkill

What timer do you use for your pomodoros Paul? I found a program today called Focus Booster that's really simple and awesome. Or do you just watch a clock or something? I bet you already told me before.

i use two: an hourglass that's 20 minutes (which cost me like 35$ but looks cool) and 2$ ladybug kitchen timer which can be adjusted (i use that when i want to do one that's not 20 min, and i like to hear the ticking sometimes to keep my attention). i haven't tried any digital ones yet but i feel as if they would be less effective than something tangible

Interesting, I have a tomato timer that you twist but I found the ticking sound unbearable (maybe yours is quieter).

you can try putting it further away or under a blanket i guess; the ticking for mine isn't very loud but i don't have much of a standard of comparison. here's the one i have:

Paul is there any news about SD? Screenshots?

I was sorry to see it got overlooked in IGF but I think you are basically right about RPGs not really being a good fit for judges that have to play a lot of games.

Also, and this is a real but silly question, but how did living in NJ and seeing it flooded during Sandy affect how you view your game? Like, I saw eva tweet at one point that you were stuck w/o power but OK, then I saw a pic you posted of a part of NJ underwater, then I started to think... it's kind of a similar environment to Saturated Dreamers. Anyhow hopefully that isn't a tasteless question, I do mean it sincerely-- just kind of this weird coincidence.

rinky is making the final areas and knowing rinky there's like a 100 "final areas" so it's going to be a while

sandy and the flood were different events -- my city of paterson flooded (but had power) during hurricane irene, and had no power (but didn't flood) during hurricane sandy. both interrupted my ability to work on the game; with irene i had to stay at my father's place for a week, and with sandy we weren't forced to evacuate but we had 9 days without power, so i couldn't do much work on the game besides read through the notes and make plans and such. still that's only a week or so out of 52 weeks, not a big loss, though annoying

as for updates, like eva said i'm working on the final areas of the game -- the final ~100. there are planned to be 1000 hand-made areas, and i'm working on the final 10% of them -- about half of those 100 remaining will be normal exploration areas, and the other half will be dream mode (shmup) areas. i'm going at a rate of 1-2 areas per day so those shouldn't take all that long (another two months i'd guess). after those are done i need to finish up a few more minor tasks, and then put it into playtesting (anyone who volunteered in this thread will be pm'd a that time), and likely will release the game in late spring or early summer, unless of course the playtesters suggest so many improvements that it's worth it to implement their ideas before release

Ah, I didn't realize that Irene caused so much damage. It seemed everybody was just like "it's a dud" at the time, but I didn't follow too closely. But I guess what I meant is, aside from the disruption in work, did seeing a large area flooded up-close give you any uh, "inspiration" (for lack of a better word) for your game?

I just see large-scale destruction as a kind of surreal thing, I remember one time a small creek we have here flooded tremendously, like, into a raging torrent. It completely reshaped the landscape. I went and looked at it (from a safe distance, though probably still closer than would be reccommended) and it was just... like reality had been shuffled. It was even weirded when the water left and I rode my bike through the area, there are like completely new channels with flowing water that became permanent, and other changes to the landscape. Not to mention 8/13 bridges were washed out completely.

Cool stuff! I'm glad that the game is in the home stretch, I'm looking forward to it.

Eva thank you too for the update Smiley
