Yeah, I get it. I get things. :)
Maybe 'The Kid' is his given name. His parents were unusually cruel. And their last name was Kid. :P

Mini Update:

I've been working on a website for Far-off Daydream Games, and speaking to voice actors, trying to put a trailer together. We have a preliminary voice cast assembled, so that's good.

I kind of feel like I'm juggling a few things at once, when it might be best to focus on one objective at a time.
Also, an awesome thing happened - I got permission to use a really nice spiritual song in this project. :)

Oooh, a website sounds awesome. ^_^ I'll be sure to check it out once it's up!

It's good to focus on one objective, but some people work better when switching between a few tasks. Whatever floats your boat. c: Awesome news about the song, I look forward to hearing it in the game.

Yeah, but it prolongs your completion of said tasks. I think it's more rewarding to start and finish one thing, pat yourself on the back, possibly brag about it, and then move on to the next. :P

I think the song is really nice, I'll keep its identity a mystery for now. :)

We have a brand new website! It only took forever to put together...

With this finally done, I can jump back on the trailer.

Thanks Zelan! :)

I'm really happy with it. Note the responsiveness if you open it on a desktop and scale the width down to mobile phone size. I learned a lot about responsive design! Also, that there is no shortage of layout things to keep tinkering with and being OCD about, down to the single pixel - to get it just right...

Working on the first trailer now, I have 17 lines of dialogue to integrate with the visuals and music. It's coming together really nice so far!

Awesome job! ^_^ The voice actors did amazingly. And the music choice was perfect for setting up the tone.

Thanks Zelan! :)
It was really great working with the voice actors. It was more of a wishlist element for me for a while and mind you I haven't had to implement voice audio into the game yet (which I expect will be a ton of work!), but they definitely inspired me to do my best to get voice acting into the project.

Mini Update:

Our composer is doing a great job putting some tracks together for the game.
Our BG artist is doing a great job on backgrounds (my original on the left, and the new one on the right):

And hopefully I've been doing a good job working on art for the opening. :)
