A small blog today (I know, I know, 'Halleleujah'). Today is battle day.
As I have said, previously, I am not keen on random shooty-stabby violence at this point in my career. It is dull. It is easy (or as easy as anything is when making games). I'd rather not engage with it... unless there's a twist.
The twist, in BeMuse's case is that every tricksy, evil entity in this world has a 'name'. Names are made from several words of power. Anyone remember the 'Weirding Module' in David Lynch's movie adaptation of Frank Herbert's 'Dune'? That. Today is the day all of that goes in properly. Wish me luck.
Names are both a weapon and a weakness. A Demon's name also shifts over time. Is it because their names are long, and they only reveal small segments at any time, or are Demon names constantly shifting by nature? Are they linked to outside forces? Who knows. I'm hoping folks will lie about these things sometime.
In the meantime, I'll proffer the latest screenshot.
Edit: the battle system works! Tomorrow, feedback and polish.
