Reality-on-the-Norm: Reality-in-the-Norm
« on: 21 Aug 2019, 17:33 »
Reality-in-the-Norm will be my first attempt at a RON game.

Set in a slightly different dimension to the other RON games, Reality-in-the-Norm follows David Jones on a treasure hunt, as you get to witness a completely different take of Reality.

People have said to me on multiple occasions, that you don't need to be an expert in RON lore to make a RON game. So I'm putting that to the test with this (technically still canon) soft-reboot.
And of course there's plenty of references to real RON lore. I couldn't help but learn a few things and include them. And this is supposed to be a "B" dimension of sorts, so there's got to be plenty of similarities.
But I'm hoping that people who like RON games, will still like mine. And that people who have never played a RON game, will consider playing mine.

Screenshots:






Current Progress:
Story--  100%
Graphics--  98% (I might spruce up a thing or two, who knows.)
Scripting -- 99% (Bug fixing, spelling errors, ect. Nothing major though. It's just finding it.)
Music-- ??% (Right now I'm using a song I stole from another RON game as the background music. I'm not sure if I should keep it, or change it for something else.)

Release Date:
Definitely before 21st of September. So long as nothing unexpectedly major happens in my life.

Sounds like something a handsome person would say! It was me wasn't it?  :P

I'll be sure to give it a play Danvzare!

Of course it was you.  ;)

The game will be puzzle complete today. Which means next week I'll be focusing on the spit-and-polish. In other words, text, animations, graphics, ect. Everything that makes a clicking-simulator into a game.

Also, I'm glad to see interest. I was slightly worried people wouldn't like my "B" dimension idea.

I present to you... the title screen!


So far, progress has been moving along nicely.
The game is playable from beginning to end, with all of the dialog between already in.
All that's left are a few special case animations, and a whole lot of text for incorrect choices. I mean, surely you should be able to talk to a grave, right? Right?

Also from what I could gather, Reality-on-the-Norm derives its name because the town Reality was built on a river named Norm. So I guess in this universe, the town was built in the river... presumably with the use of a dam. I guess flooding must be common.

Ok, one last update.
The game is on the cusp of completion. All it needs now is rigorous bug testing, and also for me to finally figure out what I'm going to do about the music.

If I don't encounter any bugs, then the release should be sometime next week.
If I do encounter bugs though, chances are, there will be plenty more I don't know about. So it'll be released in two weeks.
Either way, it's coming soon.
