So, you know what's really satisfying? Deleting code. Seriously, it's like chocolate icecream.
I've been working on 0.6, which is a ~2/3rds re-write of the game engine, and it's about 100 lines shorter - even after adding a bunch of new features. :)
Saves are about 1/3rd smaller, the game runs faster, and it's more fun to play - less repetitive, faster-paced. Rather than click-click-click until something interesting happens, you may actually have choices on what aspect of the game to pursue at any given time.
In short, I'm taking a break from writing content to work on the gameplay for a while. It's been pretty neglected until now.
I really need the money from opening the baths to make the upcoming loan payment, but there's also a tasty blue action over in the docks that only shows up in the evenings, and I'd have to take Hathawa away from her job to explore it...
Damn it Wend, you're supposed to take that man's money, not buy him ice cream using business funds!
