That’s an incredibly ominous title, isn’t it?
Let me explain. First, take a quick look at the following image, my script work for the villagers. It’s not important for the post you read the whole thing. Just get a general idea of what’s there. Oh, and realize that there’s ten more like it:
So I’m dutifully entering all of this. Did a little behind the scenes work for other ideas on how conversation will work, the whole nine yards.
Anyways, I’m on the second villager when suddenly I start wanting to look things up on the Internet. Things unrelated to the game.
This isn’t a good sign. I’m beginning to think it means it’s my Muse trying to talk to me.
Because not a couple minutes ago she whispered, “Why are the Villagers saying these things? Aren’t the characters looking for a way to continue their quest?”
Crap, crap, crap.
Either I have a specific set of responses for this, or I need a cut scene having them ask the first Villager they come across.
Both are serviceable (and the latter allows me to keep this work) but the last thing I want to do now is meddle with ANOTHER CUT SCENE.
(In fact, the more I think about it, the more I’m sure it will be another cut scene.)
So in the interest of moving on, I’m not going to put ANY of the couples I worked on.
Instead, I’m doing this:
Then moving on to the next part.
Probably should have done that in the first place…
