I Didn't Die

Posted by A Tobias 6 months ago
I'm currently recovering from brain surgery, which I had last week. Things like this shake up life a lot... but now that it's over for the moment (but not for good), I feel a bit lost. I've been trying to get back to games development, though, so I'd like to write a bit about that here.

Soulmate Development 8: Pitch & Uncertainty

Posted by A Tobias 6 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 7 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 6: Villain Design

Posted by A Tobias 7 months ago
Phew, this one took ages! And I'm not even sure I like where I've gone with it so far.

Soulmate Development 5: Conversations

Posted by A Tobias 7 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 4: Protagonist Refining

Posted by A Tobias 7 months ago
These refined designs are only subtly different from the others, but I did say I'd post openly about the development of this game, so...

Soulmate Development 3: Protagonist Design

Posted by A Tobias 7 months ago
The design for this protagonist is going in quite a weird direction at the moment!

Soulmate Development 2: Setting & Mechanics

Posted by A Tobias 7 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.

Soulmate Development 1: Overview

Posted by A Tobias 7 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 8 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'.
