Demo's running at about 13,000+ words. I'm not entirely sure how many menus there are anymore because the interface has been changed and the engine's Lint report no longer counts them. All I know is I have WAAAAY too many choice menus (about 40 something just for the demo at last count)...and it's part of the reason this the demo has been taking as long as it is.
Basically I have to test this thing multiple times, going down multiple paths...I have no idea why I put so many menus in the first place other than the naive notion that, "golly gee whiz, people like making choices!"
Anyways, I gotta go into work. Will be trying to finish the last edits during my breaks.
Incidentally, I woke up today with this weird feeling in the pit of my stomach. The same feeling I had when I released the first version of this game. Mainly, "wow...this entire situation is kind of nuts. Am I crazy?"
I hope my beta testers are looking forward to this...after a certain point my judgment starts getting cloudy, I start questioning everything...
