Still finalizing the scope of alpha build, I'm halfway done editing the scripts (8 chapters). I wanted it to be entertaining to some degree even for an alpha.
Most of the past 2 weeks have been just writing and re-writing the draft for the alpha..I don't know the scope of the entire project yet.
For alpha I'm aiming for around 1 hour(?) of playtime - depending on speed of the reader. I had to temporarily remove most of gameplay elements (navigation, combat, etc.) just to polish up and focus on the story, they'll have to be added later.
There's a lot of artwork to polish up (facial expressions are pretty bland at the moment), and the amount of images is pushing the build size to 76mb. I did some optimizations and texture compression to get it down from ~130mb.
There's always going to be a trade-off between size and quality.
