• Checking In: Python, Codeacademy, and Stories

    It’s been quite some time since the last update, so let’s do a quick rundown of virtually everything that I’ve done! This’ll be a short post.

    Python and Codecademy #

    In order to supplement the fact that the visual novel project has come to a grinding halt in recent weeks, I’m reviewing and picking up on additional things through lessons at Codecademy. I’m still sticking with the Ren’Py visual novel engine, so that isn’t changing. I’ve been flow charting the common route, and though having a point-based decision system sounds nice, I’ve concluded that a simple diverging route should be more than enough for me.

    Stories #

    The visual novel project has come to a halt but not because I don’t want to work it. School has been keeping me busy as of late, and although decisions keep coming to me, fitting them all together can prove difficult.

    Will I keep working at things? #

    Heck yeah, I will keep working at things! I’m rather glad that I’m not paid to write or program a visual novel because I’d probably do a terrible job, I’d be burnt out, and I’d be fresh out of ideas in a week.
