RE: [RELEASE][FIXED]Deterioration - Total Conversion

Quote: Duly noted, sir. I thought about that, but I avoided subtitles because
the text on the screen was reserved for thoughts the main character had
and the dialogue was purely spoken. Having the text be both would have
felt kind of contrived. Before I even had voice acting, that cutscene
used text with quote marks around it, and it felt really strange.
I'm a little confused by this, because generally subtitles in the original TDD appeared at the bottom of the screen, the main characters thoughts appear in the middle...could you not just have the subtitles appear at the bottom?'

Ultimately it's a moot point, as I think simply increasing the volume of the dialogue would do the trick

Quote: This whole project, while it may have been a bit of a failure until I
released like 6 versions of it to fix the stupid bugs I overlooked due
to improper testing, was purely a portfolio piece. So, if I actually
find a way to get into video game design for a major company (which
would be pretty nice, considering how much time I have sunk into these
projects, I feel I deserve a little payment for it [img]images/smilies/tongue.gif[/img]
I'd hire you if I was an employer, and I'd donate if I wasn't dirt poor, but that's life

Quote: these are all things I would be keeping in mind. This story, as it
stands now (with the final release and everything), feels a bit like my
magnum opus for now, and I am very creatively burned out. I just want to
sit on it for a while until another good idea strikes me. I attempted
to make a quick story this week, and made almost a full level (5-10
minutes of gameplay), before I just gave up due to boredom.
The story itself is quite excellent, as is the custom story, managing to create an interesting narrative, frightening atmosphere without cheap scares, and enjoyable gameplay without being too frustrating...most of the time.

So I'd say for the time that it's a safe thing to sit on as your magnum opus Smile

Quote: It's definitely time to take a break from editing and focus on real
life, what with going to a new college and newly dating the girl of my
dreams on my plate as of now. So thank you, everyone, for all the
support. It's been wonderful.
The custom story has been wonderful, now I wish you luck at college, and happiness with your new girl, and hope you come back to making us stories when you're done with all that, it may be a long shot, but there it is
