v0.3.0 Housekeeping

Hi Everyone,   I'm back from the dead. My last post was well over a year ago, announcing v0.2.0. v0.2.0 was a bit of a mess, strung together to make nice looking GIFs and screenshots. The code was an absolute nightmare, and there were some fundamental problems with my engine that really worried me about the reality of this becoming a game. It became really daunting to work on, and I ended up falling out of the project entirely for a few months.   During this lapse in progress, I was able to spend a lot more time making pixel art. A lot more time writing. A lot more time with the piano. A lot more time playing other people's games. It was a needed reminder that I was making a video game because video games are made out of the things I enjoyed doing, not the other way around. So, here we are.

These past two months have been a bit slow, but luckily this is my last week of any kind of traveling for work so I should be back on my regular schedule.

I've decided to take up classic semantic versioning, vX.Y.Z, where an X iteration is a major overhaul or milestone, like full release. Y signifies major updates and content expansions, and Z signifies smaller updates and bug fixes. This update is the inventory update, a smaller update that contains a significant amount of UI work, and some actual things you can do/interact with in the world. First and foremost, let me introduce you to developer mode. This is what I am looking at about 99% of the time I'm actually running the game, I've just decided to call it something. As you can see, there's quire a bit go
