My Plans for Detective Rizal

October 24, 2011 - 10:35 pm

Although development for Detective Rizal is currently at a halt, it doesn’t mean that I have completely forgotten about it.

Over the past few weeks I have come up with a plan on what I will do with the project once I decide to resume development. Keep in mind that these are not set in stone yet and may change in the future:

  • First plan of action is that I will be porting the project from AGS to Flash so that people can access and play it online. This means no more downloading and installing. Just get the link and start playing.
  • I also have already talked to some people if whether they are interested in collaborating for the project. So this means I will be delegating the art and writing to them while I concentrate on programming. Because frankly, I suck at script writing.
  • I am also planning on looking for a sponsor who can fund the project to keep the team motivated because while I can run with an empty stomach, I don’t think others in the team can. This also means that the game will remain free forever.
  • Finally, we might add some new stuff to the project gameplay-wise. It’s a secret for now but I guarantee that the game will be more engaging and fun.

So that’s about it. I just thought I’d write about it to let fans know that the project is not dead yet.

For now, you guys can enjoy the demo by downloading it here. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to leave them on the comments section below.

Development on Detective Rizal halted

August 15, 2011 - 7:02 am

I would like to apologize to everyone who have been waiting for the release of Detective Rizal. Development of the game has been temporarily halted as I am currently bogged down with an important game development project as part of our school curriculum.

When will I plan to continue development? I can’t really say for sure. Since I’m already on my final year of college, I am focusing all my efforts to finish my studies. Maybe I’ll continue once I finish the project I’m working on right now. Or maybe when I find the time during a school break.

How much is left for full completion of the game? I’m already done with the game engine so the only thing left are a couple of art assets, the script, and the coding. So I’d say still around 35%-40% until completion.

What is this development project I’m currently working on? It’s for our Software Development class where we were asked to create our very own Facebook game. Development is expected to span for a few months. I’ll start posting more details on this blog soon for those who are interested to know more.
