Well I got some big news today, but it is not all good news. First off I added Tale 7 to the comics section. I also updated the character data page so that is up to date with all the Characters that have been introduced so far in the comic. Now for the bad news. After some thought I have decided to cancel my BOP: Zenta's Revenge Flash game project. I will not continue this Flash game, it is dead. That is not to say that I will not make the game some time in the future using something other than Flash. To find out more about why I canceled the project check out the FAQ Page. Do to this cancelation I have decided to only take the comic up through Tale 10 so that I don't tell too much more of the story when the release of a new BOP game is not in site at this point. This will also allow me to spend the time I was working on the comic to work on other projects. Since the game has been canceled I have taken down the Prototype A Flash demo from this site.
I added Tale 6 to the comics section. I also updated the character data page so that is up to date with all the Characters that have been introduced so far in the comic. As for my progress with the game I am done with my initial pass at the AI for the fighting engine, and I am currently working on debugging the fighting engine to make sure everything works right. With September getting closer and closer it really does not look like I will be able to finish in time to enter it into IGF 2009. So I will be looking at a IFG 2010 entry.
I added Tale 5 to the comics section. With respect to my progress with the game I am now almost done with my initial pass at the AI for the fighting engine. After I finish that and add some effects, and have debugged the fighting engine I will be releasing Prototype B.
I added a new comic to read. This comic ends a tiny bit past the start of BOP: Zenta's Revenge.
I have updated the characters page and also added a new comic to read.
I have updated the site some including adding some more FAQs. The main new addition is Zenta's Revenge Prototype A. This is just a little tech demo of the game so far. Some time I will come out with Prototype B which will have fighting in it.
I have finally released the meaning of B.O.P. It stands for Balance Of Power. I also added a comics section with the first Balance of Power comic released.
I added some pictures to the character page. I also have something planned for release late September hopefully that has to do with B.O.P. When I release this I will be revealing what B.O.P. stands for as well, so stay tuned.
I am pretty sure now that I am not going to make the deadline for IGF 2008. Things are still going slowly. I think I am done with the fighting engine, now I need to make the AI for it along with the player interactions for it. After that there is still a ton of content to be made and a lot of bug testing.
I think that I am not going to make the deadline for IGF 2008. Things are going slowly and there is a lot of content I want in the game. I should have it ready way before the deadline for IGF 2009.
