Happy (roughly) 2 year anniversary of JAD2.22's release!
And just to make some small announcement, work on Just Another Day 2.23 started this month!
In the last big blog post, I expressed some uncertainty about what JAD2.23's form would take. I think I've recovered enough since then to have the creative capital budgeted to finish it in a proper fashion. After the enormous workload of JAD2.22 (which included a partial remaster of JAD2.21), doing any more work at the time seemed too much. But for JAD2.23… there is not as much new stuff required. I've got a clear vision of what to do and how to go about doing it.
To give you a rough idea what to expect, there's going to be 6 space sim missions, and 9 VN "missions". I sure hope you like a lot of text! Because that's what you're getting!
So it's gonna get done! My goal is releasing sometime this year. Could be any day. Could be tomorrow! (Actually likely not!)
But I'd say I'm maybe 20ish% done so far. A lot of the VN text was slowly written over the last year and a bit, so getting that in game is going fast. And the space sim missions are going to be fairly straight forward, no silly things like overcomplicated multi-area missions, or stealth missions, or multi-area stealth missions.
So that's how JAD's going. How are you?
