It's 2012 and TDC is still here! Woot! So of course I will make more dev logs and keep you guys up to date with whats's going on.
First off, I'm making an overworld map screen now! The number of exits I was needing to keep the gameplay smooth and have not too much backtracking was getting ridiculous. So I've cleared the town and all other areas of all the different entrances and exits and whatnot and now if you leave an area, you will see a nice and clean map screen, where you can move freely to the next location you want to visit.
Also there is a new mechanic in the game I call Combo Meter. It rewards the player for high damage and awesome combo combat moves. The more damage you deal in a row, the higher the experience bonus will get.
