Is this still in development? How is the pivoting coming along?

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!

Is this still in development? How is the pivoting coming along?
Yep, still very much in development! Just trying to avoid the temptations (and distractions) of social media. Pivoting away from a traditional point-and-click towards something more visual-novel-like was probably for the best. Lets me focus on the story. And reduces the need for elaborate animation (which I'm completely rubbish at!) while still letting me have nicely rendered backgrounds.

Here are some screenshots that have accumulated over the past few months:

So I had this idea of using a shader to give my 2D backgrounds an illusion of depth... and it turns out it works way better than I expected! Was expecting all kinds of artifacts, but it holds up surprisingly well as long as I don't take it too far. The effect really makes the 2D backgrounds pop!

It's kinda neat how the hotspots seem to move towards the mouse cursor as if to assist the player in their pixel hunt:

Some lighting studies for one of the few scenes taking place down town. Kinda playing around with the idea of telling different stories by simply turning lights on and off.
