I had the sudden flash of inspiration that the Reeshman Mall could be constructed in Minecraft and the Mallcrawler game somehow translated into an adventure/survival map. But since I don't have any coding ability for Minecraft and my building skills are pretty amateur, I doubt I can realize this idea on my own. So it remains just an interesting thought I had.
Paradox Lost strangles my brain every time I crack it open, so progress on that is still halted. I'm trying to regain Caleb's personality during Burning Black's era so I can write his group's section, but every time I try and turn him cold and aloof there, Gabriel shows up to do or say something stupid to snap him out of it. Annoying little brothers... both his and mine. Well, mine not so much, except when he runs up to tell me about some show I've never heard of or have no interest in. Sorry, I don't care what's going on with Joey and Melissa, let me get back to my scripting please before my motivation shrivels up and blows away in the wind.
So yeah, Burning Black's not doing so good after I got through Timmy's part.
I'm working on Mallcrawler at the moment, both the scene list and the game. System Restore was accidentally destroyed in the combat department, so I'm going to have to rebuild that entire game from scratch, but with a lot of changes to make it easier to navigate and understand, less complicated when it comes to items. But that's for another time. Mallcrawler is going to be my flagship, so I need to get that working first, both the game and the book. I actually went looking to see what technologies were present during the time the game takes place so it could be chronologically accurate (though I may still be a bit anachronistic, but I'll blame that on Reeshman being so flippin' rich he could put 'futuristic' tech in his malls).
My main issue with the game so far is naming the stores. Blarg.
