(no subject)


Don't look too closely, in between Tutorial Tim and Tess Turmoil, you'll see Robert Patrick. There's nothing wrong about Robert Patrick, he just doesn't know he's in my game. And he won't be, once I do another hour of PhotoShop scribbling.

I made a task list, with priorities. I knocked off a few things tonight:

  • played and tuned all the levels - they're all finishable, some are hard. That's the idea. Some aren't hard. That's good, too.
  • buttons click - not important, but it feels good that buttons click when you, uh, click them.
  • press 'S' to toggle sound
  • press 'M' to toggle music - some people play at work.
  • press 'Y' to invert the mouse - some systems are screwy.
  • press 'C' to... well, the pattern-assist for colorblind people will be in soonish, and 'C' is the way you'd activate that.
  • scribbly portrait of Tutorial Tim. Goes along with the scribbly portrait of Turmoil Tess. Woody and Tyger Blake remain. I'm getting better at scribbly portraits. In that I can turn them out faster. They're still scribbly.

According to my spreadsheet, I have 16 hours of work left to do, and that's counting 3 1/2 hours of stuff I may blow off.

REMINDER if you want to send me voice clips, my gmail address is tsmaster. I would like to have them by Friday afternoon. Thank you very much!


Thanks to everybody who's sent in voices! Each one of them is great - I've found myself laughing at what you folks have brought to these people that were just wispy figments of my imagination yesterday.

I do have a little bit of doubling up of voices, so what I'll do is have them a little like radio stations, or DVD audio tracks - if the player wants to switch over to a different voice, they can hit 'v' and tune to the next channel over. I know, I'd be a terrible director, having to pick ONE person for a part. Everyone's so great, I want to use everything you fine people have given me.

Also, if you were thinking of sending in voices, I can still use more - everyone brings a new flavor to the stew, a new personality to the party.

You guys rock!

see me, hear me...


The big addition here is wendywoowho's voicework for Tess Turmoil. Press 'M' to turn off the music, so you can hear her without distraction.

There's some other stuff, too, like touched up artwork for the clock and 'mistake' box.

14+ hours of work to be done in the next 32 hours, less sleep, less a day in the office. I think I can do it, but I'll be exhausted when I'm done. But that's part of the fun - the burn after the race well run.
