The past few days have felt like I'm in a dream. I can't believe we are only 17 days from release. Rock God Tycoon has always been a massive project that felt out of my control. I've always wanted to complete it of course but I couldn't imagine actually taming the beast.
For the sake of other developers, I'd like to share what type of work I'm facing this close to release.
Last Minute Changes
I have nearly finished all of our originally planned features aside from Video Clips which are partially completed and have moved on to re-writing system for the future. What do I mean by for the future? Well I want to save us development time (once the game is released) in any way possible. This means making any half-ass written code legible and modular. This of course includes minor optimizations as well which I'm not fond of but I do feel is necessary.
We also have neglected to put in a tutorial up until this very moment. We have planned about ten days prior to release to create and design a basic tutorial for the release. Ideally this tutorial will explain the basics and help players get right into the game without much of a hassle.
