The Christmas List DevLog #1

The Christmas List - DevLog #1

Since we started work on the concept for The Christmas List (about two-and-a-half years ago), this time of year has always presented a challenge. It's an ideal time to show people what we're doing and get feedback, but as a father, it's when I have the least spare time to dedicate to the game. This is problematic when you're responsible for promoting the project.

So this year we thought the best thing to do was get our demo out there and let people try the initial quest from the game for themselves. Hopefully, having a chance to play through it would be far more beneficial than any number of screenshots or updates we could put out on our twitter feed.

I'll be honest - putting a demo out is something I find both hugely exciting and utterly terrifying. Will people enjoy it? What if everyone thinks our ideas are rubbish? Or, even worse, what if no-one cares and it gets ignored? Even though this is effectively a hobby project for us, putting something playable out there still feels like sending one of your kids out into the world.

Thankfully, quite a few people have taken the time to try out the demo (big thanks if that's you) and, even better, a few have contacted us with their thoughts - this stuff is utterly priceless when we figure out which parts of the game need work so huge thanks to anyone who has dropped us a line. One of the main things which came out was that people wanted to know more about the rest of the game so we'll be trying to make our dev logs a regular feature in the new year (my first of several resolutions no doubt). There are lots of other areas in the game which we've completed already so we'll be keen to show those off in more detail soon.

Another point which came out was the formats available. We've had several requests for a mobile version which we would absolutely love to do. Hopefully it will be possible in the long term since RPG Maker MV does have support for both iOS and Android. Once we've got the main bulk of the game finished I'm sure it's something we'll look at :-)
