First off, thank you all for all your support for the series. I hope you'll stick around after reading what I am about to say.
Yeah, the title explains it all. I tried really hard to get the game to launch today. Literally, all the programming is done. Episode 4 has better writing, better artwork, and was going to have a new UI with better saving and loading, as well as better performance. Because of changing the code structure, I am finding bugs up the butt.
These bugs didn't show up in the initial testing, and I'm super peeved about it. If there were no bugs, I'd be releasing this to you all right now, but maybe this is a rookie mistake.
I don't know.... since I got my first career related job, I've been drowning in work, and I think my boss hates me. Plus, I had personal things keep coming up which were completely unplanned for and took away 1.5 months away from me. It was so beyond my control.... Just this week, I just got my first paper notice that my performance is terrible at work, and they will consider firing me now... Then my aunt dies yesterday...
I just... I'm so stressed, so sick, and so pissed, that I am putting this project on hiatus until I can get my life sorted out. But I also really want to be done with episode so I can take a break! Oh.... boy.... I'm just cracking up now...
I'm taking a commentor's advice and Episode 4 will come out when I can get my life sorted out. I can't do anymore right now...
Though, be sure, I will be back. I've been working on this for 3 years. I'll be working on it for many more years to come.
I hope you all are faring better than I am.
This is just a quick update. While all the writing and artwork is finalized, the last 10% of coding and testing has yet to be completed. With the new time projection, I can't release it today. However, it's not more than about 3 days work. The new release day will be by Dec.20, if not sooner.
I apologize for this. I hate missing deadlines, but I really can't do anything more.
Episode 4 is now re-scheduled to come out by Dec. 20, if not earlier.
Sorry, my health is failing me recently. But I need to keep posting them. I told everyone I would.
So here's some more teaser stuff. :D
