As in the to-do list, our NPCs are now largely done. The last 5% is mostly just checking the 140-150 NPCs we have for spelling, grammar and suitability. There will also be some small adjustments to NPC conversations to make NPCs more ‘human’ and generally easier to interact with; but that isn’t actually required for release, and a lot of that will probably be left until beta testing. Similarly, the final 5% in books is mostly just checking. Though both of those updates will probably only be made when we're a little closer to release.

As for the map, once the few new graphics that are required are made, the last 5% won't take more than a month. There have also been some important map changes which weren’t actually included in the to-do list percentage, most notably in the starting area, Timar. Fully implementing the transparent water that you might have seen in a recent teaser will also take a bit of time. But I hope you’ll agree that it’s a price worth paying.

Quests are the only area where I feel that we’re really behind. Which is why it’s also going to be our main focus for a while. Till has already got started on them – hence the rise to 70% - and I’ve joined him in that now too.

Yours,

Hah, I feel that way while making bonegame maps. Well, I feel as if my OCD gets worse.
