Finally cracked open the biggest remaining task, which is writing the varying story scenes that happen after boss battles and at the end of the game.

Spent some time writing a complete outline, then moved on to writing the individual scenes and their final text directly on the boards that will load in after bosses. The scenes that play after bosses trigger in a certain order, no matter in what order you fight the individual bosses.

5 scenes complete so far. Theare are 8 major scenes and a couple minor scenes that are presented in another way, elsewhere in the game after a couple minor events.

[Done] Scene 1.
[Done] Scene 2.
[Done] Scene 3.
[Done] Scene 4.
[Done] Special event that triggers when entering the second half of the game map. Includes a mini-boss variant of regular enemy.
[] Scene 5.
[] Scene 6.
[] Scene 7.
[] Final boss pre-fight scene.
[] Final boss post-fight scene.
[] Scene 8.

None of the scenes are long. Each consists of a few short paragraphs at most, so it is really only a question of me feeling inspired to write something.

Finished the 1st of two phases of the final boss. BUT then realized that some other bosses have some pretty bonkers coding in their ability scripts. I'm still not through fixing that stuff, but that's making games in a nutshell. Two steps forward, one step back.

One boss script in particular could not possibly ever have been actually tested. I had to rewrite the whole thing while shaking my head at past me.

We've all been there. I'm impressed with your commitment to going back and fixing. I think the pay off will be worth it.

I enjoy working on the game, so it seems always just a matter of time before I get down to business.

It feels like I should be finish it up as soon as I can though. My mind has been increasingly playing with the idea of what game
I want to make next.

Today I just did some fun stuff, instead of working on the last couple imporant elements that need to be wrapped up.
So there are now several new secrets and costumes to find. One secret is super well hidden. I like the idea of having layers, where secrets range from easy enough to find if you're a bit perceptive, to being very obtuse and requiring some luck to figure out. I always like that feeling where you've completed a game but you aren't sure if you even saw everything. I hardly ever use guides for that reason. They ruin the sense of mystery.

Also made all throwable weapons even more accurate AND cheaper to buy in bulk. I suppose I would have to explain the combat system to make that change seem significant, but trust me - it is.

I'm probably not going to play the DLC. But I did come back to my old save for a handful hours in the week leading up to the Erdtree release. I beat Radahn and found my way to Nokron for the first time.
Haven't been back since. Elden Ring is cool, but I never quite loved it.

The last couple weeks, I've been playing something completely different. Sniper Elite 5 is my jam right now and I completed Still Wakes the Deep a little while ago. Both are really good.
