It's that time again--the time for me to envision snarky comments from Old Man Murray whilst taking screenshots of my maps. This time it's the servant's quarters, which I believe might be looking a bit too posh, but so it goes.
The plot of the game itself is largely completed, but I've still got to do the workaday business of developing puzzles and placing the bread crumbs that will let you piece the whole thing together. Puzzles are a funny thing in Amnesia, and I'm not sure I've got them quite right yet. Ideally, they should be a way to develop the story, and to give one a feel for the world they're inhabiting while providing some hands-on interaction.
In practice, they're often more of a way to keep the player in one place long enough to make them figure out what's going on, and to make them visit all the rooms by placing a drill handle here and a bit there. And, of course, I've got to work with the pieces I've got in the dev kit. I'm trying to get an optimal balance here, to make sure you're not just flipping a lever in each room and moving on. We'll see how I do with that.
