Week 4: Adventure Creator
Today I started classes for the Interactive Storytelling program at Uppsala University. This (storytelling) is one of the fields I really need to improve as a game maker, so I hope this to be especially helpful and inspiring. This is also the reason why this last sprint has been so short (4 days) as I had to delay the story writing of the game a little, so I can start working on it in parallel with the course -as I explained in the previous post.
Therefore, this short sprint has been great to work on other things that I had planned for later. Some of these things are the kind of tasks that won’t necessarily bring short-term value, but they didn’t require a lot of my creativity, so it was perfect to give me a break in that sense and advance some boring -and not so boring- stuff.
So this is what week (or sprint) #4 has brought:
💌 Newsletter setup: Now I can send emails from WordPress about news and updates.
💬 Comments update: Blog comments are now open to every visitor.
👤 Profile settings link: This one was quick. You can easily access now to your profile page (and log in to this website) from the “My profile” link added to the footer.
🚂 Unity and Adventure Creator setup: The game engine is ready to go!
This week: I hope to be very creative and productive since my plan is to finish a first draft of the story by the end of this week (yes, I’ve already chosen one). It’s not a big thing, but this draft will also include the character(s) bible and a world map (map of locations/rooms).
