Echoes of the Old War Update

Current status:

I realize that I haven't made any updates since... April (shit).  Uh...  I've been editing?  A lot.  Such to the point that I've been shelved the novella I was going to write on the side for now.  I'll probably pick it up again, but for right now, I just want to focus on this game.

Everything is going fine with Echoes of the Old War, and any doubts that I had about the narrative are (mostly) melting away.  I still have lots of work to do on it, and can foresee at least two more editing and re-writing passes happening.  There might be more as I get into actually programing the game and find that certain things do and don't work and maybe come up with new ideas on how to approach certain story elements.

I haven't had any developer diaries in the last couple of months since I don't really have anything interesting to say other than, I'm editing.  Any changes that I talk about would be in a vacuum and would make little to no sense.  I've considered dropping a meditative or two here as I work out certain problems, but those are usually unedited, dry, and lack certain contexts.  Let's face it, things like that are only really interesting to crazy people like me who are interested in creative process.

So in short...  I'm editing.  Once I get in to the learning process of programming the game and doing all of the animations, I'll have a little bit more to talk about.  But for now, back to the writing cave.
