Day Dreaming Derpy Dev Log #10 (Game Builds)

2017-01-20 17:35:01 by sonicboy112

Phase 1 is complete! To say the response to the DEMO v0.1 was overwhelming would be an understatement because as far as releases go, this might be the one of the most well received! First thing's first though...

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SHARED OR PLAYED DAY DREAMING DERPY!

I'm so glad that ya'll enjoyed the little I had to offer for the demo and I'm looking forward to further develop and polish this game for you all to enjoy in it's final form! But fear not, for those antsy enough not to wait for the full release, here's how the development builds are gonna go down!

The current version v0.1, while packed with everything I've worked on so far, does have some bugs and unintended events that couldn't be foreseen prior to release, so builds like v0.11 / v0.12 would be common enough to replace the current download at rpgmaker.net. Think of these like patches that fix minor things in the current version to make the experience/gameplay smoother. Upon testing, old save files do function as they should with these small tweaks added, so simply transferring your save file to the new game folder would work just as fine and you can continue playing from where you left off.

Future builds like v0.2 or v0.3 and so on will contain major additions to the game, these include new dreams, areas, characters, additions to the battle system, etc. Essentially, with each new build I will be working closer toward the complete product with v1.0 being the "content complete" status. Save files can be transferred to the new game folder in the same way, but I'd do so with caution as crashes may occur if large changes conflict with the save file's data.

Game dev mumbo jumbo aside, if you watch for any updates or announcements for a new build, you'd slowly play the entire(yet flawed) pre-release version of the game. It's like getting a steady stream of appetizers before the main course!

Of course, I'll still be releasing dev logs on how the game's going and my ramblings on game design and whatnot; I hope this entertains those of you interested in following the game's behind the scenes progress.

As for anyone who has volunteered their services to help with development, I would like to thank you for all the offers. I'm sort of one-man-army-ing this thing so any help is appreciated and I will send out another post if, and when I do need to draw upon your phenomenal cosmic powers~!

Again, I'd like to thank everyone who has made this release get as big as it did! And feel free to let know if there's anything you'd like to see from me or in the game!

Thanks, ya'll @^@
