Well, In the last WIP release, (I’m pretty sure is in that) you can meet one of the Bunbats, a local wildlife creature which have somehow become pretty big. Normally a foot tall, they are sexually agressive predators.
Now, in the real world.. basically, that doesn’t happen.. Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem ‘In Memoriam A.H.H.’ famously uses the line “Tho’ Nature, red in tooth and claw”. It wasn’t an original term and wasn’t right at all.. Nature isn’t like that..
Sure, alot of things are a bit.. iffy.. like some forms of Dolphin (it isn’t one race, unlike humans, but a group of races) do form gangs in order to team up to get a female to male, and a number of animals like Dolphins and Lions are known to kill the young of a previous pack leader in order to get the females into heat and then breed with them but… if you know the term, it isn’t the same.. While Darwin’s views were very.. basic compared to what we know now, Tennyson’s views were pre-Darwin.. it was shown to be soo out of date even by then..
Some animals are known to engage in interspecies sex.. well, alot of it is more masturbation but still.. if species are very close, like some Cats, Dogs, Horses etc, they can interbread and you get various different types (Ligers, different dog Breeds, Donkeys, Mules etc) but that’s about it..
However, this is isn’t the real world. Bunbats are also bloody blind. well.. they are called Bunbats as they are like Bats and Bunnies. Oh and because I love world building, though I also am very much in the view of don’t spent too much time doing that, that your final product has not story, There real name is ‘Leporptero’ which is… well, pretty easy to see why. Bunbat is the common name for them which most people call them. which is something that happens alot in the real world.. In this world, they are sexual predators, probebly partly cause they are known to have large penis’ for their body size.. something which is gonna cause some trouble for Jinny as she has to avoid them..
Like I said, in the last WIP you can meet one.. but by the time you get to this room… you have a couple you need to deal with..
Well, been working a bit since the last WIP build release.
I’ve got all the locations that you can visit in act 1 in the game, though one is VERY rough as I’m having problems with figuring out just the best way to do what I want with that room.
There is also a bit of a tricky issue with the one character… I wonder if i should do a little bit of writing about fitting characters to stories vs stories to fit characters.. maybe on my FA and SF sites.. but that is kinda related to this in a way…
anyway.. It’s quite nice to get them sorted out, even though I’ll probably been tweaking bits and adding interaction points etc over time (for example, there are a couple of bits in rooms already seen in the WIP builds which don’t have too much you can do with them because you can’t do them or have the stuff to do that until much later.
I’m kinda trying to do something that for me, seams impossible.. advertise… While I would like more supporters on my Patreon of course, It’s not the end of the world. But I would really like just people being interested or caring about my work..
Already got one of the new characters you briefly see in Act 1 designed, and looking pretty nice, which will help me on another more Major (to act 1) character.. who is going be a real pain to design.. Gonna be fun though ^_^
Well… maybe I’ll have a image or two later in the month but maybe next month more likely
As Perditus is.. well, much bigger then Fox & Hound, it kinda also gives me more points for short fun movie clips. I’m trying to do something I should always do but fail, and that is paying to my strengths. I’m not the worlds best animator and artist. My style leads itself more to a set style of animation and i should more embrace that then I do. I think this clip in the game works well for that. It’s kinda a completely optional bonus and while should be fairly easy to find, I’m not gonna say much.
Well.. I need not go into some rubbish that some people have but I will say kinda been having a bit of up and down with my depression and other people’s attuites and responses..
Anyway… Work on the game has been slightly slower then I would have liked but still going fairly okay.
Right now, I’m in fact, debating something. There are plans for a number of readables you can find and read. fair enough…. BUT, the question is.. do I have an folder?
What I mean is, once you have read something, do I have Jinny basically carry a copy of it with her so you can re-read and go over various readables when ever you like? OR do I just do it that if you want to re-read it, you kinda need to go back to where it was? IF I have it that you don’t keep a copy, then there will probably be LESS readables in the game as a whole, compared to if you can pick them up..
At one point, and this is something I did think about for Fox & Hound, I was thinking of Jinny keeping a diary or notebook which stores some information.. however, that seams pretty out of character for her. It would kinda be a bit odd for her to keep picking up pieces of paper and the like, but I could get around how stuff is ‘collected’ in that way..
I sometimes have a very hard time committing myself to one idea if I have to decide things like this.. very annoying
