No worries, I can make those additions easily enough.

As for towns, they do have a few requirements, and some coding will be necessary, but there's plenty of people on the ASMT discord who can help out with that, if you're worried. If you have discord, feel free to chat with me in a bit more detail.about it if you'd like.

As long as it's not too involved, that should be fine! I can message you on Discord; mind if I get a link? Can't seem to find it anywhere

Development is happening over here. Once you're through verification, if you don't care about spoilers you can ask for the spoiler role and that'll give you access to a special spoiler discussion channel, as well as the ability to view all the dev discussion.

Small update, looks like all the towns and game level slots are claimed! I'll be trying to check in with claimants periodically to make sure things are on track, so if you are working on a claim, feel free to send me updates and such via discord or talkhaus DM!

Another small small update: We have one level slot open. A level had to be cut due to real world events making it much more problematic than was originally intended, so there's a new slot open in World 6, ideally to be filled by a two-exit level, but that's by no means a requirement.

Wow lots of small updates. Almost like progress is happening and I'm super keen to see even more. That slot that opened up has now been claimed, so we're just waiting on people to make what they said they would.

However, we can still make space for levels if people want to submit them!

At some point relatively soon there's going to be the relays to work on, too. Any other help anyone can give is also greatly appreciated, just get in touch if you wanna be part of this project, because even though the main game has all the level slots claimed, there's still a ton that people can help with!

As someone without access to the Discord - is there any sort of update on A2XT Episode 2? Is it a dead project? Is it nearly done?

Just curious. Not sure how to keep up to date on these things.

As I understand it, Rixi and Hoeloe have been slowly chipping away at it, though it comes and goes

I don't think it's in A2MT territory yet, though it doesn't appear to be near anything resembling SMWCP2 either

As far as I know joining the discord is the sole way to follow the development

It is most definitely not dead, but how close to completion I dare not guess. The hopes earlier in the year was to have a release this year iirc, I don't know if they're still on track for that
fart.

Development is still going. At this point a lot of it is being handled solely by me and Rixi, and that's meaning we're having to pace ourselves around other stuff in our lives, as well as avoiding burning out. Slowly but surely making progress, though I can't guarantee a release this year.

For an idea of progress - the game is currently playable from the start up to around world 3 (missing a level from Rixi mid world 3, and the w3 boss, also from Rixi), though world 4 is almost done and world 5 is not far off.

Of course we wouldn't be opposed to some help with fitting everything together. There's a lot more of a plan than the previous projects now, so it's mostly a case of making the things that we're missing and implementing the plan as written.

Appreciate the update. Sorry to hear so much is on so few shoulders. I suspect most of the remaining work is technical in nature? If so, I'm little to no help.

A good chunk for sure, but not all. There's still a lot of polish work for towns, for example (and the entire W6 town needs making, which I am willing to do if needs be), and a few world maps constructing (though those are potentially leaning into "technical" because of reasons).

Hey, it's been a while! Hope everyone had a good Halloween!

Here's a few new gifs and a screenshot we shared on discord during October:

Development has been moving along decently well lately -- we have all of the towns now and a majority of the work on them is done, most of the overworld maps are done (the remaining ones are kind of a doozy, though!) and we've made steady progress with the bosses and cutscenes, including some that have been on the chopping block for a while now. Hoeloe's currently resting -- she's been low on energy the past few days -- but she'll give a more specific status update when she can.

In the meantime, I've been preparing to get the ball rolling with a certain part of this project we mentioned a while back. I'll be publishing a thread for it later tonight, so stay tuned for that!

All right so, let me write this up.

In terms of the current status of the game, the majority of it is playable now:
World 3 is still missing a few things, with Rixi in the wings to fill those in when possible.
World 6 needs the map and its boss finishing up.
World 7 needs the final level and boss finishing, as well as one level in the middle of the world currently being made by Genolandia
World 8 needs its map creating, and the final level finishing (which I believe is intended to be a relay)
World 9 is missing one level, currently not claimed, as well as its final level (another relay) and boss.
Currently all the levels up to the end of World 7 have had a first pass of cleanup done, with the final two worlds still needing it.

As well as all that, there are still several cutscenes that need making dotted throughout the game, but those can be hashed out pretty quickly.

The plan is that once the game is playable from start to finish (even if features and some content are missing), we'll open the floor for testing so we can more quickly identify and resolve problems, as it is quite difficult to test things exhaustively in a game this big. I can't give a good estimate of when exactly that will be, but hopefully some time within the next few months.

Currently, I'm working on the World 7 boss and level cleanup, while Rixi is working on the World 6 map and a few other missing things. We're also still on the look out for people to make a few pieces of character artwork. We have most of it complete, but there's just one or two missing ones we'd like to get nailed down. Anyone is free to sign up for that, so just let us know if you want to help out.

On top of that, the World 8 map is proving a difficult challenge, so if anyone with some experience with Blender wants to help out there, please get in touch.



In short, there's still plenty to do but the game is taking shape, and if anyone does want to help with the remainder of the work please do get in touch because it'd be a huge help and hopefully get the game ready faster.

I think that's all from me for now, though there's a good chance I forgot something as I'm still fairly out of it, so I'm going to go back to resting for a bit. Hoeloe out!

In case anyone missed it, that part of the project is the game's voice acting!

We're looking for an actor to perform one or more fully-voiced lines for

Uncle Broadsword

as well as whatever yippees and wahoos and other such noises everyone would like to contribute for the rest of the cast. No need to audition for a specific character if you'd prefer to wing it! Check out the thread for more info:

Surprise! One more spreadsheet!

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

We're looking to start populating a certain section of the hub we've had set up for a while now, so this is everyone's chance to weigh in on who to put there. No asset submissions necessary, we'll handle the graphics; just leave a comment in the spreadsheet or a spoilertagged post here with your thoughts and suggestions!

If you're not familiar with commenting in Google Sheets, you can either right click on a cell and select Comment or just select the cell and press Ctrl + Alt + M (or whatever the equivalent is on other operating systems.)
Image

When a cell has a comment or comment chain, the upper-right corner turns yellow. You can then select the cell to reply to the comment(s) there.
Image


Alternatively, y'all can just post like "

character X should be in the cameo room

" or "

I disagree with character Y being at table 3-2 of the cameo room for reasons A, B, C and/or D

" or "

character Z should say "words words talk dialogue and things" in the cameo room

" or what have you and I'll copy that feedback over to the sheet myself.
