Mid-February Update

Hey guys,

Few things to talk about today, including some stuff I’m really happy about. :)

The Director

The Director system, something I began designing about a year before the Indiegogo campaign, has hit a major milestone. The team have put in a lot of work recently, and I’m happy to say that the Director is now passing every one of our tests. It’s an entirely scratch-built markdown language designed to make writing for our game as fun and as creative a process as possible, by offloading logic from code into raw text. This allows writers a much greater degree of control, as well as making scenes highly adaptable. I think the syntax is solid and understandable, but obviously the major test will be once we start accepting writing from you guys (something which is now closer than ever.)
