Most of what we worked on this week is content that will come later so it's still up to the war. We also worked on things that should be coming up soon. Such as...
The Maypril Mech. Today and yesterday I've been animating it. It's pretty ridiculous but there's no doubt it'll be powerful. Don't forget that this mech will ONLY BE AVAILABLE FOR SUNDAY, MAY 1ST from MIDNIGHT TO MIDNIGHT EASTERN STANDARD TIME. I'll mention that it's design is based on one of the first SC mechs and it's not War Bear. I'm honestly not sure what its name is since I only know it by its file name which would give it away. I chose the mech because it looked vague enough, as in, not a falcon, or animal themed mech, etc. Also, it has feet.
The SCQM should be animated early next week so we MAY have that mech coded and out the door next week. I'll post updates about it next week.
I got backgrounds for the bigger Gameshow planet quest back from Minar this week. That will be my assignment next week. It should be a fun quest although it's not exactly a quick quest. I need to send him the storyboards for the cutscenes so he can make the BGs for those.
Jemini is working on the boss battle background.
Maegwyn, Lyris and Vivi will be plotting for the upcoming Friday the 13th event which is creepy because it's like we can suddenly plan ahead! Creepy, right?
While they work on that, Mae will be spending a lot of time on the SC Challenges while I finish up the Gameshow planet. I'm not as certain that I'll be able to release it 100% complete since that requires more George Lowe audio but one way or another, I should be able to release it and just not have the end be spoken dialogue which won't be a huge deal. That's really the worst case scenario.
It's getting later in the months than I anticipated but once we get over this hump, I feel like we'll be going at a faster pace. So lots of good stuff in the works!
Have a great weekend!
