Another long gap between updates. I haven’t give up - there will be a completed version of Concealed Intent! Just today I renewed the concealedintent.com domain for another year - how is that for commitment. Work is continuing and the game is beginning to reach the same level it was at before I sent out the alpha, and then started the rewrite. I will endeavour to give more regular updates in future. As part of my personal goals for the year, I have stated the plan to post year at least once a month.
This is the point in time I had hoped to have a finished game. My target was to complete, release and then go to the Game Developer’s Conference in San Francisco. It starts next week, and I’m not attending. Having been to a GameDev conference before (Unite12), I know that the most valuable part is talking to the other participants. Learning from the talks is an ancillary benefit. However, I also know going as someone who has never worked in the industry or written a game is always a bit of an outsider. Many of people want to make games, few do so. I need to complete something to prove I can, before going to another conference.
Hopefully next year!
