I apologize once again for the long time between updates. I have been working my job a lot lately, so less time than I'd like has been dedicated to this project. However, I have a healthy amount of screenshots and notes for the update!
1. I tested the swimming function in the Bike Trail area, with some funny-looking results. It worked flawlessly, so time to implement!
2. The creek has been mapped out. The player has the ability to swim, look, interact, and use items with the creek water. Because the swim stat is relative, the dialogue sometimes changes to reflect how your character is doing. Some of the dialogue is rather comical.
3. There is an icy stage which is fully mapped out, complete with a difficult puzzle. The player will need to solve it or suffer a chilling demise (pun both intended and unintended).
There were other things too, such as glitch fixes, animation updates, sound work, and formulae changes. It's all slowly coming together as well, because that creek area connects two other areas!
I will try to keep everyone updated as these steps towards completion are taken!
