Default Chronology of the Last Era: A little game I've been working on.

When I joined the Navy I started dabbling in game creation software as a way to pass time. Eventually I started cooking up an actual game. I had fun messing around and sampling and editing graphics, but I hope the plotline and the gameplay is what eventually cements it. Hopefully I'll finish it this year.

Please, by all means, check it out, subscribe/follow if you're interested, and so on!

I like writing Bestiary entries too. They're a lot of fun. Make sure you check out and follow the Twitter and Tumblr if you think any of this is cool.

I love bestiaries with flavor. One of my favorite parts of Final Fantasy XII (and I was amazed to learn the Japanese version lacked it entirely).

Well, maybe "lacked entirely" is a strong phrase. But apparently it didn't have any of the personality or, well, flavor.

...getting through the remaining 91% of the text was a real challenge, especially for just two people. We probably made it harder for ourselves by doing things like the Victorian-era characterization on the bestiary text (which reads like a dry high school Biology textbook in Japanese), but you do what you need to (A) get the project where it needs to go, and (B) maintain sanity!

There's alchemy and crafting too!

Huh. That's interesting; stuff like that gave the game a LOT more flavor. I'm glad they added that in.

I wonder: why do these giant AAA budget games only have one or two translators working on them? The role can't be that expensive for them to not have a small team.

If any of you were following on Tumblr, I did some witchcraft, but I lost all of my followers in the process. Refollow here if you followed before/were interested.

So do you have an idea of when you might be done/your % completion?
