Working on Storyteller this week has been a bit of a challenge, as Buenos Aires is burdened by a high-humidity heat of 40 C (104 F). I always try to not rely on air conditioners but you could really feel the difference in this weather. Mosquitoes are adding extra spice on heat insomnia too.
Since I spent a lot of time making the a stable build, I decided to spend the next months breaking everything by adding new features:
- The Storyboard in the screenshot above is the "menu" of the game, where you can see your progress, pick the next story and improve old ones (more on this on future updates).
- You get stars by solving stories and figuring out special versions. These stars are actually needed to unlock the more complicated stories. I am still not sure I like this mechanism, but it allows me to make the game non-linear.
