Blue Lemma's Development Journal

#1 Post by Blue Lemma » Thu Jan 29, 2004 11:16 pm

I thought it might be a good idea to record what I've been doing every few days (as far as game development. :P ) So here's my little development journal! Now you can find out what's going on behind the scenes without having to open the door on Lemma while she's changing.

Lemma: :shock:

Er, anyway, here's the first entry:

Jan. 29, 2004 - I've been very busy with a physics midterm, two quizzes, and a software engineering paper. So I didn't get much done. (Not a rolling start on the journal, huh? ^_^; ) Tonight I am continuing work on the Tales of Lemma 2 script. So far it's 64 pages, and I'm just getting to the good stuff! :wink: The good stuff is always fastest to write, so... :lol:
I expect to get a lot done this weekend since I have little homework. Now that you've read this, be good little boys and girls and play some Shoujo Attack! :P

I completely forgot about Shoujo Attack. Thanks for the reminder!

Yay! Journal that informs us of updates = Less threatening mail and other such nick-nacks involving ToL! Woo!

It's good that you're honest. I'll be more than happy to wait, especially if you have a more important matter at hand!

It's been a while, folks!

January 31, 2004:

Woo! Weekend time! 8) Since last time, I wrote a little more ToL 2 script and got 2 more artists for future projects. One of them is here:

I've gotten another secret game started with someone, but they're doing the art and story. I just need to do some programming, and since that's very different from the ToL 2 script-writing, it shouldn't interfere. Things are looking up! :D

Gotta hand it to ya, you've got skillz when it comes to hunting down artists. Good job.

Not nearly as skilled, but just as portable

February 6, 2004 - I'm CGing Mayu and some of her clothes. I also decided on a major story point in the script. This weekend I'm looking forward to finishing more graphics and script.

On a non-game note, I found out that I will be interning at LSI Logic starting the end of March. They make chips that go in the Playstation 2 and a wide range of products you use every day. The internship will be six months, but don't worry - I'll still be making games! 8) Soon it's time to go apartment-hunting. I think I'll take Miko and Lemma with me to keep me company :wink: :lol:

edit: Regarding Love Fairies and future projects, Love Fairies is on hold until I finish ToL 2. I'm trying to pull everything together and get it done as soon as I can. Some people have started doing work on other projects that will come later, so there are all sorts of things in development (as usual!) The remainder of the ToL 2 development is almost totally up to me, and with the delays I've had, I've decided to make it a top top priority.

This journal is a nice idea. It's nice to hear about things going on in the creators life beyond just work work work (on the creations we see anyway) or maybe that's just me ^^ Best of luck with your studies, I think I need luck too ^^;
I looked at the art link and she has some really pretty stuff, I look forward to seeing what game features that artwork.

Heh, good luck with that internship! Maybe now I should try to get serious with my exchange student search (I'm trying to go from Hawaii to Sasebo, Japan... Hopefully to end up in E.J. King High, but alas, I'm a lazy little bastard and the money's killing me..)
It's been a while, folks!

February 16, 2004 - I've been working on the ToL 2 script some more. I think I've identified one reason why it's taking me so long, so hopefully I can remedy that. I'm also sketching more because I want my pictures to look good. I want to do the characters justice! :)

Right now I'm going to whip up a random number program and select the Shoujo Attack! New Contest winners. Good luck to everyone! :D

March 2, 2004 - I'm working on improving my art skills. I've been feeling a little insecure about them lately. I want Yuki and Mayu to look at least pleasant :? I've also been hitting the ToL 2 script some more and been getting an artist and composer set up for working on a future ren'ai/RPG game. 8)

In other news, I went looking for apartments with my future roommate last week, and I got sick after that. :( At least we found a nice apartment! It should be an interesting internship, or so I hope. Too bad it's not a game-developing internship, huh? ^_^

LSI Logic? That's the company I'm doing my Capstone project for. I got to have a tour of the place lol. Got to go through the whole putting on sterialized clothes deal and walking around and getting a quick description of everything in the chip lab place. It was cool

March 25, 2004:
I've been doing more ToL 2 script and sketching Yuki. I've also started organizing something else for the future. :wink: Most of my time, lately, has gone towards finals and moving. Things should get back on track after the move, though!

I won't be online for a few days to a week or so because of the Internet situation where I'm moving. I hope to get it sorted out ASAP. In the meantime, optimus160 will be taking care of the board for me 8)

Maybe I'll bump into you sometime, Blackstream :D
