I'm still working on Soulmate! I've made ∞ this page ∞
to briefly summarise what the game actually is and why I'm making it; it's quite rough at the moment, though, and I'll continue to update it (especially with concept art and screenshots when I have them to include). I've mostly been trying to figure out the details of the story recently, though I'm also plagued by uncertainty...
I made that page so then I can link people to it rather than trying to explain what I'm trying to do, or linking to these rambling development posts, but I wonder how well it actually explains anything. I feel some bits are probably just confusing, but it's hard to be sure when you can only imagine what someone who knows nothing about it might think.
While I have the 'backbone' of the story sorted out, the thread that ties all the events together, actually deciding on those individual events is proving more difficult! I've been doing a lot of brainstorming, and gathering inspiration; watching films, playing games, reading things. I didn't account for any of this when planning the tasks a while ago; things always take longer than they seem they might.
I could go on at length about all the doubts I'm having... but I suppose there's little point indulging such thoughts. Mostly I just keep imagining comments from critics and trolls, tsk-tsking at or mocking my every decision; a constant, unwelcome mental presence that's arisen from dealing with such people online before. I'm concerned that people won't even like a game like this, that I'm just annoying people by focusing on it... but we'll see.
Anyway, I'll write more blog posts about it when I have something more substantial to show or talk about!
