I am still working on the Endgame area. I had hoped to be done with it by the end of last year, if you can believe that. So I would say things are progressing quite a bit slower than anticipated. With that said, the puzzle design for this area is now complete, as is most of the art, so I’ve just been assembling the pieces that I’ve created. Wiring up the bits and the bobs, so to speak. I’ve been doing a lot of this on stream, compromising a bit on my desire to keep everything about the Endgame unspoiled, but I think it’s more important for me to be able to focus and get the Endgame area done as quickly as I can.
Here’s a spoiler-free screenshot of some of that:
Once I finish the Endgame, there’s really only one large task left on the list, which is the Mill. So, in spite of being behind schedule, there’s still a decent chance that I can ship the game roughly on time. As I regretted in the previous devlog post, I do wish there were more time for me to polish up stuff and re-do bits I’m not as happy with as I could be. But alas…
One major thing that I’ve had to cut is simultaneous console ports of the game. The current plan is for the initial release of the game to be PC only, and then I will do one unannounced console port as soon as is reasonable. It would help me a lot with determining where best to focus if you would answer the following poll.
