My First Game Jam Summer 2017 Dev Log - Days 1+2

Well daily logging is going well so far, ha.

Anyhoo, my Day 1 of MFGJ included finishing a several page outline and actually beginning on my script’s first draft:

I also took a look at the Ren’Py documentation and it’s similar to how you work in Twine. Plus I tend to write stories in a similar format they’re asking for (compare the next picture with the one above). I just added the “narration” after reading the Quick start documentation page.

I also looked into some of Ren’Py’s customization tools. The language Ren’Py uses is Python which is similar to a scripting language I’ve been learning on-and-off (Javascript).

For Day 2, I’ve spent a lot of time looking up references and tutorials for drawing faces. I attempted to start designing Treyané’s face, but it became more of a refresher on working in Inkscape (I started learning it before this jam). Plus now I have a basic reference within Inkscape for creating faces+their proportions in the future! Though… I only have one facial shape for now. 

yo shoutout to game developers and writers because sometimes people can be so ungrateful

TV Show - Skins UK (2007-20014)
The story of a group of British teens who are trying to grow up and find love and happiness despite questionable parenting and teachers who more want to be friends (and lovers) rather than authority figures.

Tony: I say this world extends way beyond this little field of dreams we’re dancing in, and I wanna see that world.
