To clear things up right away: yes TT is still on hiatus. That won’t be changing anytime soon when 1. I am working to get money and 2. what free time I do have I do not spend working more >_>
Anyways, I was wondering if I should scratch the entire Affection Mode system. I’ve done a lot to it already, mainly setting up a backbone, but it’s not as if it’s finished. It’s just a mountain load of work left to do. So I was thinking about simplifying it, so that I can actually have a reachable goal of completing it.
I am not sure how I’d simplify it, but I want it to be more fluid and integrated into conversation. So perhaps when you’re on a date and the bachelor follows you around, you can talk to him, and then choose to touch him, without going into AM for that. How I want to add this touching, that’s something I’ll have to come up with (probably a simplified menu to choose actions), but I guess less is more and it applies to games as well.
It would feel more natural too, to touch the bachelor as he’s talking to you. Which is something I had come up with years ago, but scratched it. But you can only do it during dates. I guess you can lure him into your (or his) bedroom if you want to go for sexytimes. And if there’s someone else in the room and you try to be too intimate … hilarious results will follow. Hmm, yeah, sounds good to me.
And here’s a random sketch of Eddie I had lying around. He certainly ended up looking like Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon … though Eddie was created before I saw that movie.
