So we've officially entered Beta Crunch Mode with The Dream Machine - Chapter 1. We're trying our darnedest to get it done for the Independent Game Festival, and so far it's looking good. Not great mind you. A lot of assets have yet to be delivered and whole chunks of dialogue has not been written. But for every placeholder graphic we swap for a real one, for every line of code we add, things slowly start to congeal into a somewhat coherent whole.
This might turn into a game after all.
