Soulmate Development 8: Pitch & Uncertainty

Posted by A Tobias 8 months ago
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...

Soulmate Development 7: Soulmate & Concepts

Posted by A Tobias 8 months ago
I'd been trying to dive straight into asset creation with Soulmate, though I realised that I needed to think much more carefully about the groundwork - the conceptual base, story and setting - first. So I've done that! Though normally I'd avoid posting openly about story development like this to avoid 'spoilers' for when the game is done, I think it'll be more interesting to be able to watch as things develop over time. To compare the final story to the notes I had at this stage. I've also drawn a rudimentary design of the eponymous, androgynous Soulmate character!

Soulmate Development 5: Conversations

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
I've gone beyond the concept stage (though there's still a lot of that left to do) and actually started on the actual game part of Soulmate! Well, I mean, I'm just reusing Taming Dreams' engine, so most of the work was already done, but still. Progress!

Soulmate Development 2: Setting & Mechanics

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
Continuing from the ∞ previous post ∞, I'll be describing the development process of my current project, Soulmate. While the other post covered the general gist of the story, this one will sketch out the world it's set in.

Taming Dreams Saving Issue

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
Just a quick note: People have told me that Taming Dreams isn't saving properly at the moment. This seems to be related to the saving service I was using (flox) updating or changing or something. I'm currently looking into it. Please bear with me.

Soulmate Development 1: Overview

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
I want to develop this new project, Soulmate, transparently; that is, I'll post about every step of the process in order to seek opinions and ensure that I'm making something that people will actually enjoy. In this first post, I want to (once again) sketch out the gist of the game as a whole. In the past, I didn't do this because I didn't want to reveal spoilers... but I am going to be quite spoilery here because it seems wiser than working on something that'll only disappoint.

Quick Update: A Decision

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
I wrote in the previous post about four ideas I could explore over the summer, uncertain which one to focus on. I've decided to direct my attention towards the one currently called 'Soulmate'.

4 Possible Game Ideas

Posted by A Tobias 9 months ago
I've been occupied recently with university exams, but now that they - and the first academic year - are over, I have several long, lonely months ahead of me which I can use to finally properly get back to games development. I'm unsure which direction to take it in, though; as ∞ before ∞, there are four ideas I could explore, though somewhat different ones this time!

Cultivate - Clothing

Posted by A Tobias 11 months ago
I'd hoped that this three-week break would allow me to get back to games development... and so far it has! I've been working on Cultivate - previously called Yden - and while there's a lot left to do, I thought I might as well document my progress as I go rather than just waiting until the end. So here are some screenshots!
