Hey Tommy here.
I was supposed to jump on here a few days ago and up date everyone on a few things, but I was extremely busy with a new addition to my family. As of Saturday the Revahlen treatment was completed. The process took longer than I expected, but I think that was about the approach that we took with the story. I’m not sure if I wrote this already – so bare with me if I’m being redundant – but Revahlen was originally meant to be three separate stories/episode, but they got combined during the writing process into one large game. Because of that, I think it took a little work merging some things together. In the end I like the move and I’m happy with the end result.
I’m going to begin working on the script at the end of this week, and I’m hoping that process will move quickly, but of course the same kind of hiccups could pop up as they did in the treatment so I’m weary of laying out a timetable. Don’t worry though, part of reason for the extensive outlining and treatment process was to allow us to work on aspects of the game concurrently. The game, at this point, is being worked off the treatment and we’ll fine tune it with the script.
I know what you’re thinking, as it crossed my mind as well, “If you’re working off the treatment, why is the script necessary?” It’s because the treatment is good for major in game events and planning/designing characters and locations, but it’s not so great for pacing and story telling nuances.. Even though I won’t give a time for the script to be done, I can say that it usually moves fast despite the larger page and word count – all the decisions are already made, I just have to writer it.
Did you guys check out the Geeks With Wives podcast that we were on?
The guys on there were really cool and we’re certainly grateful for the opportunity and promotion they gave us. The show is a fun watch so check it out. We revealed a lot of information on Revahlen and some of our future projects, in addition to some of the background information on Happiness. Anyways, check it out, we should have some more news on the horizon.
Till next time!
