Weekly Update #292: Outline Progress & BGM Update

Work on the outline for GENBA no Kizuna continues, with chapter 3 now basically done as well, and only chapter 4 remaining as the last big hurdle. I’ve actually been talking a lot about the outline during these past weeks, trying to put into words how I go about it and what exactly it looks like, so I thought that today, I’ll give you a little sneak peek instead. Just so that you can get a better idea as to what I actually mean when I say “outline”.

The following is a quick look at the beginning of chapter 3 (no major spoilers):

As I said before, the outline is very detailed. Using this as a reference, writing the actual script won’t really be that big of an issue.
The real problem for me is/was structuring the story and pinning down the order of events. What’s going to happen when? At which point should which piece of information be conveyed to the player? How are the mysteries going to be unraveled?

What used to be a tangled mess of ideas is finally taking the shape of a proper story. It’s taking a while, unfortunately, but I keep getting closer to the finish line. And the closer I get, the more satisfied I feel with this project, too.

Here’s hoping I can reach my current goals by the end of the month!

Anyway, in other news, there is a new Patreon post available now, featuring a new BGM track by Solo. So if you’d like to know what our “character selection” theme sounds like, you can have a listen right here.

Now, as always, please enjoy the rest of your weekend and, until next Saturday, take care! :3
