#23 Fixing bugs and bringing it all together

Hi!

Having completed the previous tasks of polishing the game and implementing visual improvements, I’ve now started with one of the most important tasks - identifying and fixing bugs! To be honest, this is tiring, difficult work (more than I’d expected!) but it’s good to see long pending issues finally resolved! :)

Slowly the game is beginning to reach the stage where it can be released to the public (which is a very scary thought lol) I’m midway through the last round of playing through and fixing the bugs by myself, after which I’ll send over the complete game to a QA company for thorough testing.



In between this there are still a couple of things I still need to implement - a simple quest tracker, improved controller support, better saving/ loading, a few dialogue fixes and some other smaller tasks.

If all goes to plan (as it has, thankfully, until now) this should all be done by mid December. After that, I’ll focus on improving the performance and framerate of the game.

That’s it for this time!

#22 Polished visuals and other improvements

Hi!

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been working on improving the visuals of the game. Which, as you can see in this comparison video of the market street, meant redrawing a lot of artwork! Buildings, trees and other parts of the background have been redrawn and improved. Since then, I’ve also improved and redrawn some of the character outfits (not seen in the video though)

Apart from that, I’ve gone through the whole game and added the soundtrack at the right moments and places and added ambient/ environmental sounds wherever required.

Also, I’ve proofread the dialogues, and will be doing that again with some assistance during the coming days.

As of right now, I’m implementing variations of color and artwork for different times of the day and weather conditions (clear, rainy, morning, noon, evening etc) This should be done within a day, after which I’ll return to adding cutscenes to important points of the game.

At that point, apart from some minor tasks, the game will be done! Then the rest of December will be used for identifying and fixing bugs, and optimizing performance. That’ll be a hugely important task, so I hope to get to it asap! By the end of December, I’ll probably be able to announce a release date as well :)

Thanks for reading and following along!

About This Game

Detective Michael Stone enters the small town of Pineview to assist the local police force with a seemingly simple case - A couple is found dead in their kitchen. The locals believe it to be a case of murder-suicide, their speculation fueled by rumors of the turbulent nature of the couple's relationship.

Is it just idle gossip, or is there some truth to the rumors?

Help Detective Stone, assisted by the driven and empathetic Officer Blunt, discover the truth behind Chris and Diane's story. But be warned: the further he pursues the case, the more his own past shall come back to haunt him. And the closer his own sanity will be pushed to the edge.
