For those who care, happy Fourth of July! Speaking of things going boom:
I've recently finished a first draft of the help screen story, and I may share that soon. I'm thinking of appending the Atroxian Realm title onto this one so that it will be Atroxian Realm: The Alphamatic. I'm starting to form a roadmap in my head of where the story can go. While I can't promise anything after this, I am thinking about the concept for the next entry. It would probably be more of a mini-mod with a much smaller scope to continue the story of the Atroxians and their origin. That's probably a long ways off if it does happen.
I've also made good progress on the levels. I'm expanding the level count a bit, and that'll give me a chance to design some smaller levels to pace the game better. I also have a cool idea for changing up the QED if the patching works out. I'm hoping to get this game released within a month or two, so stay tuned.
As for the playable character, I'm sticking with Keen for now. However, there's no reason that couldn't change, especially since Lindsey, Spot, Oracle Janitor, and Barker are all included involved in the story, if mostly just for exposition at this point.
